It is in a very remote area of Ethiopia, tt went unnotice for long time. I dont' know for a fact, perhaps it's becuase the area was so unhospitable, brutally hot year round. No civilization near by, only a few nomad family passing through. For must tourists, people can travel here is between December and March, even then it was hot. No road to get here still though they are building one now. We had to drive through river bed and rocky lava hill to get near and hike for 3-4 hour in the night, it was too hot to hike during the day and we had to leave as soon as sunrise so we can get back to the car by 8 or 9 am.

There are plenty of information now in the internet, just need to google it.

Hello Way, It seemed to me that I am a bit crazy and adventurous but compared to you I am far back and cowardish . First you slept in tent in Torres del Paine,
then you were high up in Himalaya and now in the hell of Ethiopia. I admire your courage.
But I have also some experiences with with active volcanos, I climbed to the top of Pacaya near Guatemala City, it is active all the time and glows in the night, and I saw eruption of Tungurahua in Ecuador. Unfortunately it was in predigital times. I am fascinated with volcanos so to see this one would be a great experience to me too.
Hugs to both of you MAlgo
