Mousa Ali Volcano

Serving as the highest point in the East African country DJIBOUTI, Mousa Ali (Mousâ'alli) is a stratovolcano standing 2,021 meters and 6,131 feet tall. It is specifically located along a three-nation border point, connecting Djibouti's northern border with ETHIOPIA's northeastern border and ERITREA's southeastern border. Mousa Ali is fortunately dormant and has not erupted for thousands of years. Even better, the volcano is in a low-populated area away from major settlements. Communities located multiple kilometers and miles away from the relatively safe volcano include Dorra in Djibouti, Vann (over 20 miles away) in Eritrea, and Bure and Manda in Ethiopia.
