The Land of Volcanoes

Just back from the heaven on earth. My dream to see a volcano looks to be suddenly coming true as I keep on hopping from one to another volcanic regions. After Jogjakarta, now this was time for Mount Bromo, Batok, Semeru, Raung and Ijen in Indonesia. They are parts of the Pacifc ring of fire, consisting many active and dormant volcanoes. Bromo-Tengger caldera forms an amazing landscape with three volcanoes :Bromo (still very much active), Batok and Semeru. Ijen is another active crater which was closed due to a sulfur cloud burst just few days before our travel. The local sulfur miners trek up and down with almost 70kgs of sulfur every day on their shoulder.
