// Lampung

Lampung province is located at the southern tip of Sumatra island. The provincial capital, Bandar Lampung, is easily accessible from Jakarta, by aeroplane or by DAMRI bus (via ferry across the Sunda Strait) from Gambir station. Anak Krakatau, Rakata and Sebesi are all islands in the Sunda Strait. The first of these is, of course, the new volcano which rose from the ocean three decades after the original Krakatau erupted in 1883 and continues to grow by 5 metres a year. Rajabasa, Pesawaran (Ratai) and Tanggamus are forest peaks all within easy reach of Bandar Lampung. Pesagi and Tebak are slightly harder to reach, lying in North Lampung.
