By far one of Sumbawa’s most impressive features is its Active volcano Mt Tambora.

In April 1815 it exploded in the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history. Global temperatures dropped as low as 3 degrees. Crop failures and starvation swept much of western Europe, killing thousands. The year 1816 was called the “year without a summer” Today Tambora is asleep and you must look closely to see remnants of it violent past.
