Krakatau Volcano (Krakatoa), Java

4.2
#27 of 418 in Nature in Java
Relive the story of one of the world's most devastating eruptions at Krakatau Volcano (Krakatoa), which blew in 1883 and caused tsunamis that destroyed 165 villages and killed more than 36,000 people. The blast was heard as far away as central Australia and Mauritus. Today, you can trek up the remnants of the still-active volcano to feel the planet's raw energy bubbling below. After climbing the mountain, cool off with a dip in the sea, or go scuba diving to check out the underwater landscape. Be prepared for a long day-trip from Jakarta and pack appropriate supplies.

  • It "was" nice to go and trek before the 2018 tsunami. Now is it all crumbly and not safe. We have to take care of our nature!!
  • I liked the lava. Its pretty hot but tasty. Niiiiiiiiiiiice. Too bad I cant bring it home since it is a "unesco world heritage".
