Bromo with further ash emissions

Mount Bromo continues to emit volcanic ash. According to the VAAC, the ash reaches a height of 3700 m above sea level. Compared to yesterday, this is an increase in activity. Access to the crater rim was already closed at the end of February. There is a 1 km exclusion zone around the crater. This is not only a popular destination for tourists, but also for religious pilgrims. In the crater of Bromos, the Hindu god Brahma is supposed to reside. The god is often sacrificed, mostly in the form of crops. But even living animals like to be pushed into the crater. The most important festival is the Kasada, which is celebrated once a year.
