The explosive activity of the volcano continues and seems to be increasing with strombolian to vulcanian-style explosions from the summit crater.
Ash plumes can be seen on satellite imagery now, but so far have been low and do not affect air traffic significantly.
We will be visiting the island and camp 3 nights during our next Volcano Special tour from 10-15 August. If you are interested to join a small group, please visit our Krakatau Volcano Special page!
