Mount Tangkuban Parahu is once again open to tourists following an eruption last week.
"Today [Thursday], the area reopened to visitors at around 7:30 a.m.," said Heru Hidayat from PT Graha Rani Putra Persana (GRPP), which manages the Mount Tangkuban Parahu Natural Tourism Park (TWA).
Many tourists could be seen arriving at the park on Thursday morning.
The West Java volcano, famous for its connection to the legend of Sangkuriang, has nine craters. The eruption on July 28 triggered panic among tourists and local residents, and sent volcanic ash 200 meters into the sky, according to the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG).
The summit of Tangkuban Parahu is 2,284 m above sea level. (sal/kes)
