35 International Hikers from Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, United State, Germany, French, Ireland, India, China Australia, Bangladesh, Norway, Philippines, Belgium and Indonesia were visiting the Big Bang 1883 Krakatoa. The sky was painted with stars and the Milky Way was clearly visible as a broad white ribbon above our heads. Although everybody had a space allocated in one of the tents at Sertung Island, we preferred to spend the night outside. While some where asleep, others exchanged whispering words, in awe for Anak Krakatau's glow in the distance. Amazing Experience!
Location: Sertung Island, Krakatoa, Indonesia
