“Erta Ale is situated in a remote area in the Danakil depression and security risks remain. But there is progress on both issues: After the killing of foreign tourists and kidnapping of others in January 2012 at Erta Ale, the Ethiopian government has rushed to build several new asphalt roads from Mekelle and the highlands into the Danakil depression and deployed permanent troops at Erta Ale (and Dallol) to protect tourists as well as a potash developer. As a result, in October 2014 I made it from Mekelle to the starting point for the parking lot and start of the walk to the magma lake in 7 hours (5 1/2 hrs asphalt road and 1 1/2 hrs sand and rough lava). As permits and military escorts are obligatory, a tour organized by a local company (either Mekelle or Addis Abeba) is a must. On the desert part we saw five ostriches.
The 12 km walk up to the peak usually is done after 4 pm (3 to 4 hours) and return before 9 am (2 to 3 hrs) to avoid the daytime heat. One night close to the rim is minimum, two nights are better to walk along the whole giant caldera,in which the magma lake is imbedded. Military is stationed permanently at the parking ground as well as at the crater rim. Sleeping is possible in huts or walled areas in both places. Dromedars for the luggage,food and water, but also for people can be hired.”

Easiest way is to go to Staffal (1800), Gressoney, by car.
Public transport is not recommended due to delays and low frequency.
If going in public transport:
From Torino or Milano, take regional train to Pont Saint Martin. In the train station, take the bus that goes up the valley to Staffal (last stop). Frequency is around 1.5 hours in weekdays and 3h on weekends.
Refugees Gnifetti (3647) and Mantova (3498) are open in summer season and have a winter part open the whole year, with beds and gas.
7c is the fastest route, but T.M.R. (Tour del Monte Rosa) has better views.”

“The access to the Torre is not difficult because you can access it by car coming from Seia, Covilhã or Manteigas. In winter, the snow cuts access until the snow cleaners appear.
At Torre you have a restaurant and stores filled with local products as cheese, honey, ham and other delicacies and a ski/snowboad park.
In Spring time and Summer you can enjoy trekking around.”
