The journey was filmed by Bradley Ambrose who followed Simon down the 400m deep descent

He used a spare tent peg which he took with him on the 400m deep descent towards the lava lake and temperatures of more than 2000F.

An experienced volcano expert, Bradley had made the journey down the lake an impressive 12 times already

A seasoned volcano expert, Bradley has made the descent towards the lava lake 12 times in the past – almost three miles of rappelling.

Bradley, who shot the footage with a point-and-shoot camera, revealed droplets of lava spat from the lake, known as lapilli, have destroyed camera equipment and even burnt him in the past.

He said: “It ended up being one of the most perfectly-cooked marshmallows I have ever tasted.

“Perfect and crusty on the outside without being burned – it had just the right amount of a gooey centre but without getting it all over your fingers.

“We dangled the marshmallow out over the lake where the radiant heat was at its hottest, so it didn’t take too long to cook.”
