Indonesia has banned tourists from getting near the Mount Papandayan volcano. Indonesia Tourism is advising tourists to stay far from Mount Papandayan volcano after the recent activity that increased volcano's alert level.
Indonesia has banned 1 mile region from the volcano craters to the tourists. Mount Papandayan craters are popular tourist attractions but at present the situation is quite dangerous due to emission of hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide gases from the volcano.
The alert level to the Mount Papandayan has been raised to the second highest. Since there have been incidents in the past where tourists have ignored the warnings and went to the danger zone anyway, Indonesia is taking strong measures to prevent that.
From past few years Indonesia has taken strong steps to stop tourists from entering the danger zone. Indonesia officials currently are making sure that there are no tourists in the region. The warning has been spread to the nearby villages and the area around the crater is being checked for the tourists.
