Visoke volcano is on the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. The Visoke Volcano is located on the Democratic Republic of Congo / Rwanda border. An eruption in 1957 formed two small cones on the north flank, 11 km from the summit.
Visoke (12,175 ft./3,711 m, above sea level) has a beautiful crater lake and requires four hours of hiking, up a steep trail from the Visoke departure point, to reach the summit. The walk around the crater rim is highly recommended. Allow seven hours for the entire trip. Lake Ngezi (9,843 ft./3,000 m), a small, shallow crater lake, is the easiest hike in the park; it takes only three to four hours round-trip from the Visoke departure point.
