Bromo Volcano - Indonesia

July 25-26, 2008

  • The Tengger Caldera is all that remains of an ancient, gigantic volcanic eruption. The resulting crater is 16 km across and on the floor of the crater are several, newer cones. The only one of these cones which is currently active is Bromo which constantly belches out steam and gas. It's prone to the occasional explosive event and in 2004, two tourists were killed and five injured when the mountain erupted.
