Video captures Eurasia's highest active volcano

Spectacular footage of eruption on Klyuchevskaya Sopka side cone volcano on the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula was caught on camera by eyewitnesses on Tuesday (March 16).

The video shows red rivers of lava floating down the mountain and volcano bombs explosions. Despite the danger, a group of tourists came extremely close to the streams of burning lava to capture the wildlife phenomenon.

The 4,750 metres (15,584ft) Klyuchevskaya Sopka stratovolcano is the highest mountain on the Kamchatka Peninsula and the highest active volcano in Eurasia. Its first recorded eruption happened in 1697.
