The spectacular scenes were recorded by photographer Martin Rietze earlier this month, at the volcano which lies 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the Bering Sea in Russia’s Far East.

Kliuchevskoi, the highest active volcano in Eurasia (4,835 meters or 15,859 feet), has erupted several times over the last decade; previously back in August of this year.

Kliuchevskoi’s first recorded eruption occurred in 1697, and it has been almost continuously active ever since, as have many of its neighboring volcanoes. It was first climbed in 1788 by Daniel Gauss and two other members of the Billings Expedition. No other ascents were recorded until 1931, when several climbers were killed by flying lava on the descent. As similar dangers still exist today, few ascents are made.

The volcano doubles as the highest mountain on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula and forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. (Credits – The Telegraph, Gregg Morgan, Wanderpress and Newsflare).
