National Geographic Traveler's "TravelWatch" editor, Jonathan B. Tourellot, says, "the best thing tourists can do for Indonesia right now is to follow through on their trips to unaffected places like Bali and Lombok. That provides the country with the economic support needed to offset disaster costs. Plus, you'll have a great trip."
To underline the wonders that awaits the intrepid traveler, nationalgeographic.com on January 21, 2005, carried an article by Indonesian travel pioneer, Bill Dalton, entitled "Far From Tsunami, Climbing an Indonesian Volcano."
Bill, the author of the indispensable two-fisted travel guide Indonesian Handbook, shares his comments on the two-day climb to the top of Indonesia's fourth-highest volcano, Gunung Rinjani.
