If you want to climb Mount Yasur, it used to be that you turned up at the base of the volcano and hired a guide on the spot. These days, access to Yasur is via a single company which provides guides, two kastom dance displays,...More

A Tour is mendatory. You should stay over Night as close as possible....to stay only for 1 day has the risk of bad wether which will prevent to visit the vulcano.
