Aksi gila pendaki asing membuat video di puncak gunung Sinabung saat erupsi.
@pixees - 20/07/17: #Gunung #Sinabung
is a #supervolcano
north #Sumatera, #Indonesia.
In 2014, an #eruption
forced evacuation of 10.000 people, 16 humans died. It is in a permanent #active
status, releasing #toxic #cloud #ashes
up to 25000 ft several times a day. Its #summit
culminates at 7700 ft. As we care about our life, many safety nets have been considered before the ascension : wind upslope, dust mask, goggles, GPS tracker, water spray, mandatory return point... it took us 11h back and forth (from sunrise to sunset), in one of the most hostile environment; the old track up has been covered in white #ash
which makes the dense #jungle
hardly accessible or breathable. Finally out of the forest you will face a new challenge : a 50 degree slope built over time by the #lava
and ashes: 2 steps up, 1 skid down... When you finally reach the #top,
the view from the summit overlooking the crater 50m behind us is I-N-S-A-N-E, not only black #smoke
puff out of the giant hole but #explosion
from the high pressure and lava ripping off the rocky edges sounds like canons. This #volcano
has been our highest fear and our biggest pride at the same time. As We Only Live Once (#WOLO). #drone #bebop2 #parrot #medan #mylifemyadventure
⚠️ : At the time of publishing the video, we didn't know Sinabung is forbidden. When we arrived at the bottom of the volcano (on the 20/07/17), there was no warning sign, no gate, no barrier, no police station, no military area... at the entrance of the "red zone". No information on Google, and none of the villagers told us we were breaking into a restricted area. We didn't know the risks!
From the recent information I received, I realized Sinabung is a dangerous area, we are lucky to be alive... ⛔️Please do NOT climb this mountain, you will end up in jail, or you will get lost (there is no track!), seriously injured or worse... 🙏🏼
