On the south western of the island of Java, where the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean and equatorial waters of the Sunda Straits merge, is one of Indonesia’s paramount national parks, Ujung Kulon.

Next visit after Ujung Kulon is cruising to a spectacular famous volacano it is Krakatau (or krakatoa as sometime called) is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. Krakatu or krakataoa is eruptions began on May 20, 1883 and the volcano released huge plumes of steam and ash lasting until late August.
On August 27,1883 a series of four huge explosions almost entirely destroyed the island. The explosions were so violent that they were heard 3,110 km away in Perth, Western Australia, and the island of Rodrigues near Mauritius, 4,800 km away.The pressure wave from the final explosion was recorded on barographs around the world, which continued to register it up to 5 days after the explosion. The recordings show that the shock wave from the final explosion reverberated around the globe seven times. Ash was propelled to a height of 80 km. The sound of the eruption was so loud it was reported that if anyone was within ten miles, they would have gone deaf.
The combined effects of pyroclastic flows, volcanic ashes, and tsunamis had disastrous results in the region and world-wide. The death toll recorded by the Dutch authorities was 36,417, although some sources put the estimate at more than 120,000. There are numerous documented reports of groups of human skeletons floating across the Indian Ocean on rafts of volcanic pumice and washing up on the east coast of Africa up to a year after the eruption. Average global temperatures fell by as much as 1.2 degrees Celsius in the year following the eruption. Weather patterns continued to be chaotic for years and temperatures did not return to normal until 1888.
