    In August 2011 I visited the remote volcano Batu Tara in the Sea of Flores, Indonesia. The unknown volcano is permanent active, like Stromboli in Italy. Our Group was the first who landed on a small Beach in front of the active Crater. Up to four times per hour Batu Tara send incredible lava fountains several hundred meters high. During night the fireworks were visible very well. Lava bombs rolled down to the sea and splashed in the water.
