A few photos of Slamet Volcano, taken from the city of Purwokerto and from the window of my train while I was heading back to Jakarta. See photos
Visited Bromo again in October, mainly to observe the yearly peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower. However not many large and long-living meteors was observed.
This was my 5th visit this year. Activity in bromo has increased in 2015, compared to 2014. Gas emissions, especially sulphur outputs have increased in 2015. A constant rumbling sound could be heard during my visit to the crater on the 19th October, caused by what seems to be, intense gas pressure.
The status of Krakatau seems to have not changed the last year. Local sources and the PVMG officials at the Krakatau Observatory in Pasauran, both claim not to have any indications that the volcano have not erupted in 2015. Seismic activity fluctuates but has decreased to low levels the last months, with the exception of a few modest peaks in activity..

Photos from the Dieng Plateau. 3-4th October 2015. Sindoro was seen emitting a steady plume of steam. The volcano haven’t erupted since 1970 according to the Smithsonian Institute. This is the first time I have seen gas emissions from the volcano, and I have seen the volcano every year since 2012, from either the Dieng Plateau or the Yogyakarta region. See photos here
