After two eruptions earlier this year on April 03rd and 27th has the Piton de la Fournaise, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, just erupted a third time this year, and on no other day but Friday July 13th.
Never two without three!
The Piton de la Fournaise offers a new opportunity to admire its fiery show and the volcano continues to delight the Reunionese people but also lucky tourists present in on the island.
According to the Volcanological Observatory of Piton de la Fournaise, the eruption is located on the northern flank of the volcanic massif. The fountains of lava are visible from the Pas de Bellecombe car park .
Part of the cultural and natural heritage of Reunion (World Heritage by UNESCO), the Piton de la Fournaise is one of the most active volcanoes in the world with at least one eruption per year since 2014. Located southeast of the island, the Piton de la Fournaise is a volcano said to be of the effusive type like in Hawaii by the peculiar flow of its lava.
Despite numerous eruptions, Piton de la Fournaise is safe for the population.
