Dukono volcano (Halmahera, Indonesia): Nov 2014

Impressions from our volcano tour to Dukono volcano in November 2014. We camped at Dukono volcano during 8-10 Nov 2014. The volcano's activity, typical for the recent years, at moderate levels, consisted in continuous mild to moderate ash emissions from two or three vents in the crater.
