Explorer Captures What It’s Like to Rappel Down Into an Active Volcano


We’ve seen photographers get VERY close to active volcanoes and lava flow — be it from air, land or sea — but explorers Sam Cossman and George Kourounis take the unbelievably hot cake with their recent expedition to the bottom of the Marum Crater, an active, incredibly dangerous volcano found in the Republic of Vanuatu.

The duo was guided by famed filmmaker, photographer and volcanic pioneer Geoff Mackely, who was the first ever to get this close back in 2012. In fact, Cossman claims in his YouTube description that, “More people have visited the moon than the firey (sic) bottom of this spectacular and deadly place.”
