The Mountain that changed the world. On 5 April 1815, a very large eruption occurred, followed by thunderous detonation sounds, heard in Makassar on Sulawesi 380 km (240 mi) away, Batavia (now Jakarta) on Java 1,260 kilometres (780 mi) away, and Ternate on the Molucca Islands 1,400 kilometres (870 mi) away. The ash from the eruption column dispersed around the world and lowered global temperatures, leading to worldwide harvest failures in an event sometimes known as the Year Without a Summer in 1816. 

Visting this Mountain on April 2015 for remembering two centuries after the eruption, on assignment for Media Indonesia Daily.
