Volcanic Ghost Villages In Indonesia

Indonesia's Mount Sinabung sprang to life over the past few years, erupting and releasing destructive pyroclastic flows following 400 years of dormancy. Numerous villages that had been established on its slopes now sit completely empty - declared too dangerous to inhabit by Indonesian authorities.

The newly-formed ghost villages of Guru Kinayan, Simacem, Kuta Gugung, and Sibintun show the crumbling houses and personal belongings left behind that serve as eerie reminders of how life suddenly stopped when the volcano erupted.
