8 Vol­cano climb­ing

Paradise - - Traveller | Our Country -

It’s pos­si­ble to scram­ble to the top of Mount Tavurvur, near Rabaul, and to peer into the smok­ing crater. Af­ter cross­ing the bar­ren moon­scape sur­round­ing the moun­tain, the steep slopes pro­vide a chal­lenge. There’s no track, just loose rock, and fis­sures let­ting out hot steam. You should make it to the top in about 30–45 min­utes from the base. Go with a guide, take plenty of wa­ter, and set off early to beat the heat. Most ho­tels in the re­gion will ar­range guides.
