Raung volcano is the rarely visited large neighbor of more famous Ijen volcano in East Java. The volcano is frequently in eruption, although most activity goes unnoticed as it is usually confined to the large summit caldera.
Since late June 2015, the volcano's activity has drastically increased, producing spectacular strombolian explosions, lava fountains and lava flows covering the whole of the caldera floor and producing significant ash emissions. The latter brought Raung into the world-wide news, because the ash plumes have repeatedly caused the closure of regional airports.
We offer you the chance to trek to the crater rim and camp there for one night, in order to observe this activity from close.
You can combine this adventure with the preceding expedition to Sinabung and/or extend your stay and visit Ijen with its famous blue sulfur flames.
