George Kourounis - World's First Traverse of the Boiling Lake
- After many months of preparation, I am now the first person to ever go out over the Boiling Lake by rope. There's a reason why nobody has ever done this before...It was very difficult to plan and execute plus there were the unknown danger factors. Three rainy nights were spent camped out at the lake. The first day, we hauled up all the equipment and set up camp with the help of over a dozen local porters. Day two was spent preparing the rope anchors and stringing the ropes across, then the third day I went out over the lake. Once out over the middle, I took a water sample and even lowered some eggs down to into the water to cook our lunch. The energy required to keep such a large volume of water boiling so vigorously is incomprehendable, especially during rainy season.
