If you're interested in studying volcanism, Indonesia should be on your "to visit" list. The island of Java has more volcanoes than any other island in the world. At last count, 128 were active and 65 considered dangerous. The photo above, taken on May 31, 2003, shows 2 of these active volcanos. Mt. Semeru, in the background, at 12,066 foot (3,678 m) is the tallest volcano on Java, and Mt. Bromo, in the foreground, is the center piece of a beautiful national park.
