Despite the relatively high level of volcanic activity at Mount Bromo, which is currently emitting thick greyish smoke, sometimes accompanied by ash, the popular destination is reportedly still safe for tourists.
“The small eruption actually offers a more interesting attraction for visitors, to help them understand more about the volcano,” National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.
However, tourists are warned not to move within a 1-kilometer radius of the crater.
The alert status of Mt Bromo remains at Level 2, indicating caution, which is expected to continue for some time.
“While the volcano’s caution status [remains in place], locals as well as hikers and visitors are not allowed to enter the area within a 1-kilometer radius from Mt. Bromo’s crater,” said Sutopo.
