Indonesia’s most active volcano a magnet for tourists

Indonesians living by Mount Merapi make a living by ferrying hundreds of tourists to its ‘danger zone’.

Living on the slopes of the most active volcano in Indonesia has its dangers as 275 people were killed when Mount Merapi erupted nine years ago.

Since then, the survivors of that disaster have returned to their villages and farms.

But some locals have reinvented themselves as guides for thrill-seeking tourists.
