Mount Karthala , or the Karthala Volcano, is a vast shield volcano with a dormant caldera settled on its peak. It is located at La Grande Island facing the Indian Ocean. It is considered as an active volcano with its last recorded eruption in year 2006. Scientists report that it has a capacity to erupt every few year in short intervals. It has a tendency to emit a voluminous magma flow – which created the numerous lakes found along the caldera. Every time the volcano erupts it causes significant destruction from its thick ash fall, ruining the water lines, making the availability of clean drinking water scarce. If there are no alert warning signals from certified volcanologists, a hike and excursion along its trail is allowed. You need to secure a permit from the local environment office to be granted access and a map of the famous mountain in Comoros.
