He was so erupted that destroyed itself. There was a huge caldera – at an altitude of 2286 meters mountain if cut with a knife, instead of the top of a huge round plain around the vertical walls (610 m), is home to over 30,000 animals. People do not go on foot: in addition to zebras, gazelles, buffalo, eland, elephants and warty pigs is home to lions, hyenas, cheetahs and leopards. But jeep safari lights! Kill animals can not be photographed. Middle Ngorongoro crater bubbles and gurgles salt lake. Water is almost invisible because of the huge flocks of pink flamingos. More in the crater has a river, and even a waterfall! Get here by car or by airplane from Arusha. Tourists live in small hotels, lounges, or in tent hotels, similar to hiking padishahs palaces.

Luxurious and spicy summer you can catch in February in Southeast Asia. And at the same time to visit the Museum of volcanoes on Bali – interactive, with special effects and surprises. Two on the island paradise of the volcano Gunung Agung, and Gunung Batur. Balinese believe their abode of the gods. The last eruption took place here in 1963. Lava flows reached the temple on Mount Agung and stopped, but other slopes were destroyed several villages. Try to arrive at the Agung day before the full moon or new moon – you will see how the priests sacrificed black cocks, and the people in gold sarongs fall into a trance under the mournful mantra. Such colorful processions and ceremonies, as in Bali, not anywhere else!
