Hi Everyone,

Just read this information on LP Thorn Tree forum.www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree(...)spa?threadID=2140784
and confirmed it by checking John Seach's Volcano Live website.
So sad for all of the travellers wwho wanted to experience this amazing place and sad for the miners who will have no income at this time.
Just wondering why it is not mentioned in the Volcano section here on Indahnesia.com

updates are manual (unfortunately) so it has been corrected.

Most likely those working on the mountain couldn't care less. They have the choice between starvation or working, so it's an easy one. For tourists... it might be closed, but you will find yourself able to enter as well, if you ask around.

For example: when Merapi was erupting in November 2010, I was able to reach as close as 4 kilometers from the crater (16 kilometers into the 'closed' zone) without moving fences, going around checkpoints or whatever. Knowing the area helped, but those left behind in the villages also helped me with directions. It was too scary, wouldn't do it again if I was asked to.
