  • Mount Sinabung, which has seen a spike in activity since 2010, erupted for around nine minutes on 9th June, 2019 , sending clouds of volcanic ash 7 km into the sky.
  • Mount Sinabung, which is 2,460 m high, is among Indonesia's most active volcanoes, but had been inactive for four centuries before its 2010 eruption.
  • Indonesia has nearly 130 active volcanoes, more than any other country. It is particularly prone to seismic activity due to its location on the “Ring of Fire,”an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
