Over 17,000 islands and a wide variety of cultures that populate them make Indonesia a country to return to and always discover something new. From minarets soaring to heaven like the clasped hands of a praying man to Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and the mysterious animist cults of indigenous tribes, such as the Asmat of New Guinea. All this in a landscape that could be a dictionary interpretation of the term “diversity.”
Endless beaches are reminiscent of a tropical paradise, wild fauna and flora, which, for example, in Bali hides a lot of dizzyingly high waterfalls. In Java, sometimes, the sky over the endless rice fields is smoky, rising from the volcanic complex Kwah Ijen, whose highest peak rise to an incredible height of 2799 m. If you ascend to the top, you will find a lake in the crater coloured in the unearthly colour of turquoise and intensive sulfur mining at its edge. In Borneo, you will visit the second oldest rain forest in the world, which is shrinking rapidly due to human activity. Or you can go to another of the thousands of Indonesian islands and just discover.
