Seismicity at Dempo volcano (PVMBG)
PVMBG raised the alert level of the volcano to 2 (waspada, "watch" on a scale of 1-4) because of increased seismic activity (mainly tremor and volcanic-tectonic earthquakes).
It is recommended not to approach the crater within 1 km.

Volcanoes & Cultures
: The contrast between unspoiled rain-forest, coconut palm beaches, primitive culture and moon-like landscapes surrounding lava-spitting volcanoes could not be bigger: join us on an expedition to the two most active volcanoes of Vanuatu: Ambrym and Yasur.
Kuril Islands expedition
: The Kuril islands form one of the most active volcanic chains in the world, but are very difficult to access. From time to time, we organize expeditions to some of these remote and still unspoiled islands. Adventure guaranteed!
