Mount Nyamuragira in DR Congo is the volcano with the most recent activity. The Observatoire Volcanologique de Goma (OVG) reported that collapses of Nyamuragira’s inner crater walls observed in May 2019 continued in July. Lava fountaining from a small cone was visible. Nyamuragira’s caldera is about 2 kilometres wide and walls about 100 meters high. Its lava is contained in the Caldera Lake. A hike to its summit is about 4 hours.
