Krakatau is one of the most famous Volcano Islands in the Sunda Strait which lies between Java and Sumatra, Indonesia. It was erupted in 1883 and was considered as the most catastrophic natural calamity. Such was the impact of the volcano that it resulted in a series of tsunamis and huge tidal waves which destroyed the entire population in that area. Not only this, the explosion was the loudest that was ever heard; the noise was event heard in Australia and India. The Krakatau’s volcanic ashes spread across the region, due to which the region was in darkness for two and half days. While most of the Krakatau was destroyed, another island started to form in 1927. It is called Anak Krakatau or the child of Krakatau. There are many other volcanoes in the neighbouring areas which are not so active.

The Krakatau effect was worldwide. The ashes blocked the sunlight resulting in decreasing the temperature to a certain extent. Krakatau being one of the most historical cataclysmic sites, it has now become a famous tourism attraction. It is convenient to travel from Jakarta to visit Krakatau. Tourists throng round the year to see this epic site and experience snorkelling and diving activities. Hikers will enjoy the top view of the blue sea and the greenery around. It doesn’t end here, adventure seekers can set up a camp opposite to the volcano and can view the hot lava spurting up. Mt. Krakatau is truly Indonesia’s volcanic site to behold; apart from entertainment tourists can learn a lot about volcanology, geography and ecology from this volcano.
