Dangers & annoyances

The volcano is a wild card, although recently it has been more quiet. Still it is always prudent to take precautions. Listen to what locals say regarding ash plumes and other events. Even when the mountain is calm, winds can kick up clouds of choking ash in areas nearby. And, obviously, respect restrictions of both the Daytime Entry Zone and the Exclusion Zone.
