Mount Bromo: The Hungry Volcano

Mount Bromo in East Java, Indonesia, is the youngest of several volcanoes in the Tengger massif, and is one of Java's most active volcanoes. Mount Bromo is located in the middle of a wide expanse of sandy plain called the 'Sea of Sand.'

This barren terrain is also home to around 90,000 Tengger people. Every year, irrespective of whether the mountain is spewing smoke and fire, hundreds of Tenggerese from nearby villages travel up the mountain in order make food offerings which they throw into the live caldera of the volcano.
