Mount Erebus is an active volcano located in Antarctica and is one of the most famous volcanoes in the world. It was formed during a period when there was a lot of activity in Antarctica and volcanic eruptions were common. Since then, it has been dormant for over 200 years. But now that it’s been quiet for so long, people are finally taking notice again!
The best time to visit Mount Erebus is from June through August. During this time, the weather in Antarctica is generally clement and dry. The sun shines brightly from mid-morning until the late afternoon, which allows for long hours of daylight to explore the mountain.
While Mount Erebus is one of the most popular climbing locations in Antarctica, it has also been known to be dangerous due to its extreme isolation. Climbers must take precautions when going up and down Mount Erebus because of the risk of falling through thin ice and into freezing water.
The first ascent to the summit of Mount Erebus was made in November 1934 by a team led by New Zealander George Murray Levick. They reached an altitude of 3,594 m (10,448 ft). The next year another team climbed it and discovered that there was snow on its summit and ice formed around its summit crater. In 1939 John Hunt and James Irvine reached the summit at 3:40 pm on February 4th after a journey lasting 10 days and covering 172 miles (277 km).
The average temperature during the summer is around -6 degrees Celsius, while the winter season is around -8 degrees Celsius. The best time to go is in late June/ August when there is no snowfall and no rain.
To stay warm during your climb, you should bring layers of clothing that can be worn throughout the day. You should also wear gloves and a hat to prevent frostbite on your face or hands.
It is recommended that you bring along a pair of socks if it gets wet from melting snowfall or rainwater. These socks can be used as liners for your boots if they are damp from walking through wet ground or mud on your way up Mt Erebus!
