Mount Bromo's beware status still make a lot of tourists willing to come

Although the status of Mount Bromo beautiful but it is wary tourists still travel to Bromo. Indeed, when the alert status of Mount Bromo reportedly the first time, visitors to Mount Bromo has dropped dramatically. But lately it many tourists who visit Mount Bromo, mainly foreign tourists.
Status Bromo for the population around a common thing, but for most people Bromo charm with clouds of smoke that looks even more attractive and fascinating. They say "Please rollicking come here because this is a rare phenomenon." Well .. as if the words were true, it is breathtaking though Bromo alert status, charm Bromo even more attractive and beautiful. But for the sake of safety, we recommend the visitors witnessed the Bromo from a distance.
Center for Vulcanologist and Geological Hazard Mitigation, set a safe distance Bromo today is beyond a radius of 3 kilometers, so the sea of sand is the area of prohibition to enter, but still many tourists are arrested daring to enter the ocean sand. Well .. it is in fact Bromo look more attractive in alert status.
Views of sunrise and sunset are the things looked forward to the tourists Bromo. And it seems the charm of sunrise and sunset in Bromo with a puff of smoke more and add to the charm of the mountain. The most appropriate spot to watch the sunrise and sunset is at Pos Mentigen, because in this post we can see the views of sunrise and sunset on Mount Bromo.
Well ... The amount of interest in the tourists to keep visiting Bromo is a blessing for service providers around Mount Bromo, so the economic wheel is still spinning though Bromo is turbulent. Because the charm is still attractive despite Bromo viewed from any angle.

Thousands of Mount Merapi wildlife inhabitant migrate into Merbabu

Thousands of wildlife species of monkeys on the slopes of Mount Merapi in Boyolali district, was allegedly moved habitats across to the slopes of Mount Merbabu, allegedly due to run out of food and hot temperatures on the slopes of Merapi, due to heat cloud bursts on the eruption of Merapi.
According to witnesses, the monkeys were moved to the slopes Merbabu seen since this past week. Monkeys crossing the main road route has been signed Selo-Magelang Merbabu slope that still has a lot of food for those monkey groups.
Many crops are damaged other than by the impact of volcanic ash but also because a lot of monkeys that invade plantation owned by citizens , so many fields of vegetables and fruits damaged and consumed by the monkeys which pass there during the monkeys migration.
Another feared thing that will happens, if will be struggle for territory between inhabitant Merbabu's monkeys and inhabitant Merapi monkeys. The result of struggle is there is stronge group and loser group. A strong group of monkeys will dominate the area and the loser group usually will leave the territory or become the slave. However, it is estimated that the Merapi's monkeys will return the original kehabitat by itself when the slopes of Merapi situation has been restored and adequate food supplies.lega

Profitable eruption of Merapi was visible to the sand miners

The status of Merapi is still danger, but a lot of sand miners who mine the sand in the rivers that have upriver at Merapi. Danger in the rivers that upriver in Merapi not due to a hot cloud from Merapi's eruption but the cold lava (the water that carries the material released by the eruption of Merapi), which could come at any time. However, sand miners are desperate to mine sand in the rivers that have upriver at Merapi. Their reason are quite simple, namely for the sake of rupiah.
They said sand from Mount Merapi can be sold for high prices between Rp 120,000 and Rp 160,000 per truck. Each worker can earn Rp 30,000 per day. Not bad, when the eruption of Merapi, many residents that become victim in Merapi's eruption who have no income so that the abundance of sand in the rivers become hope to earn income in the middle of a disaster situation.
What did the miners are dangerous, but otherwise they can make money, they also help reduce the rate of silting rivers. If a river filled with sand, residents who live near the river become wary of the overflow of water from rivers. Because every time a cold lava flood occurs, the river flows become very heavy with a material of sand and boulders.
According to vulcanologist professor said, that the sand contained in volcanic material released by volcanoes such as Merapi, is the sand that has the best quality for building materials because the content of silica (SiO) is high. In addition, volcanic sand is also good for water purification. The pattern of silica sand spires to make the ability to absorb the unwanted particles far better than ordinary sand. However, the use of volcanic sand as water purification equipment require other materials, such as zeolites and charcoal wood.
When viewed from an economic value and benefits of an abundance of sand along the river that tipped at Merapi, the target of the sand miners. Therefore, to avoid the danger of cold lava flood, the miners in coordination with other colleagues who are in a higher location. Through radio HT, they were preaching the weather at the peak of Merapi and increased river flow.
Merapi eruption was seen blessing right? In addition to sand, volcanic ash eruption of Merapi is also beneficial enrich the soil. Behind patience is definitely a blessing. The spirit for the victims of the eruption of Merapi.
