The world’s most dangerous volcanoes

Indonesia is the world’s undoubted leader in active volcanoes and earthquakes. Photo: Mount Merapi, located in the center of the island of Java, ranks among the ten most volatile volcanoes in the world. It stands about 3,000 meters high. The word “Merapi” translates to “The Place Where the Fire Burns,” “Fiery Mountain,” or “Red Fire.” Mount Merapi started actively erupting in late October 2010.
