Java and its volcanos, Indonesia
Foreground, we can see Batok volcano. On the left inside, there is Bromo volcano and into the background Semeru.
Mount Bromo is an active volcano of which the last eruption took place in january 2011 the 22nd. The site was closed on a 1,2 miles (2km) diameter.
Kawa Ijen, an active volcano on Java island, has, at its top, a lake said to be the most acid in the world.
The workers use many baskets to carry the sulphur. The steps used enable them to carry more sulphur with less efforts on the 4 miles (6 km) return way path.
Work conditions are extrem and risks taken by the workers, often working without mask, are omnipresent. It becomes hardly breathable when the smoke covers the crater (almost all the time).
Every basket carried weighs approximately 176 pounds (80 kg).
