Mount Tambora, the highest peak on the island of Sumbawa, is one of the most beautiful mountains in Indonesia. On April 10, 1815, Mount Tambora erupted for the first time in about 5000 years, with a series of large explosions sending a massive column of volcanic cloud into the air. That event is the largest eruption in recorded history and it left behind a crater 6 km in diameter.
After Mt Tambora then continue your volcano adventure in Sumbawa to Sangeang Api, the active volcano complex on the island of Sangeang. Located north of the main island of Sumbawa, the Sangeang Api volcano complex consists of two volcanic cones, the active Doro Api, and the dormant Doro Mantoi. Sangeang Api is one of the most active volcanoes in the Lesser Sunda Islands. After the big eruption in 1988, the island’s inhabitants were evacuated to the main Island of Sumbawa The most recent major eruptions occurred on December 2012 and May 2014, and the minor ones were on July 2017 and December 2018.
