    After managing to safely complete the risky walk, the hikers released a horrifying video online which displays a massive mushroom cloud that has emerged out of Ebeko volcano's crater.

    A group of hikers walked right up to an erupting volcano, Ebeko, in far eastern Russia. Its crater was spewing a huge threatening thick grey ash cloud into the air.

    The extravagant walk took place on one of Russia's Kuril Islands, Paramushir Island, located in an area close to Severo-Kurilsk.

    The eruption comes after Ebeko awoke from dormancy in 2016, and the volcano has repeatedly spewed ash since then.
