Indonesian Ring of Fire Photo Tour

Join us on a journey back in time and feast for the senses as we explore Baliem Valley Wamena Papua.

Indonesia has approximately 130 active volcanoes. Due to its population density and the fertile soils that volcanic slopes provide, hundreds of thousands of Indonesians live close to active volcanos. They have learnt to live with the rumblings and frequently ignore orders to leave.
The huge archipelago sits between the most active seismic region in the world, the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, and the Alpide Belt. Living around the volcanoes may be dangeruous, specially when they are actie and erupting. But they also provides huge rich mineral nutritient to the soil that in turn making the soil as very fertile.
That’s why Indonesia is noted with its beautiful landscape and agriculture yields annually. And the people live there peacefully and adjust to the latest condition of the volcanoes. They also created culture and daily life.
