Anak Krakatau

We joined a tour and traveled via ferry to Sumatra late Friday night. The travel was long and exhausting and consisted of several boats and cars to finally get to our homestay on a remote island near the volcano Anak Krakatau.

We were on this boat more than on land throughout the weekend. We sat on top or napped inside between island travel.

Eliana snorkeled and got to see some amazing blue acrapora coral and star fish, sea cucumbers and a ton of beautiful tropical fish.

The base of Anak Krakatau. The vegetation was so strange and included pine trees!

The top! Or at least the highest point we were allowed to reach. You could see red rock from the eruption only two days earlier…

We made it! I think Ellie may have been the youngest kid to have hiked the volcano. She had a pretty big cheering squad towards the end.

    • Sorry I don’t. We went with a group, but there were some people who were able to just walk up to a house and rent a room on the spot. It also depends on which island you stay at and who you go with…

Whatcha think?
