I’m a Rwanda and I really like Lake Kivu.

And I would like to inform you that our government is now taking out and use that methane gas mentioned as a source of electricity.

As a result, that method will not allow methane to be concentrated under water.

This is interesting! I am from Rwanda where lake kivu is located, I actually didn’t know it is the most dangerous! But looking on the Bright Side, the Methane gas extracted there is used to produce electricity. We do a lot of swimming there, boat riding and many other fun things though there’s a limit we can’t cross as that side is the deadly one, where the lake can literally swallow you because of the Methane gas. About 87,000 people live in that city where its located and it has a pretty decent number of tourists going there too. Y’all should definitely try it if you are looking for an amazing adventure.

a vacation website lauds how safe this lake is… no alligators, crocodiles, or bilharzia! i wonder why!! lol.

I’m actually from Congo, born and grew up near the lake and everything that has been said in this video is true. The worst part about this is that there is an active volcano called Nyiragongo just about 20 minutes away from the lake and a nearby city. In 2002, a volcanic eruption happened, half of the city was covered with stone lava but luckily for us, there was no problem with the Lake but instead the remaining lava was still flowing and finishing it flow in the lake. Since then, the city has been rebuilt fast then expected even know that the lake could explode at any given time and the volcano could erupt at anytime, no one want to leave. It is a beautiful city with amazing, beautiful, welcoming people. We need videos like this for people to learn and go experience the beautiful of nature surrounding us.

Lake Karachay (Russian: Карача́й), sometimes spelled Karachai or Karachaj, was a small lake in the southern Ural mountains in central Russia. Starting in 1951, the Soviet Union used Karachay as a dumping site for radioactive waste from Mayak, the nearby nuclear waste storage and reprocessing facility, located near the town of Ozyorsk (then called Chelyabinsk-40). Today the lake is completely infilled, acting as “a near-surface permanent and dry nuclear waste storage facility.”

Blyat points out another lake elsewhere that would rival its most deadly ranking:

Lake Karachay (Russian: Карача́й), sometimes spelled Karachai or Karachaj, was a small lake in the southern Ural mountains in central Russia. Starting in 1951, the Soviet Union used Karachay as a dumping site for radioactive waste from Mayak, the nearby nuclear waste storage and reprocessing facility, located near the town of Ozyorsk (then called Chelyabinsk-40).
