General
Tambora Utara Wildlife Reserve (80,000 ha.) and Tambora Selatan Hunting Park (30,000 ha.) are two protected sites located in the NW of Bima peninsular. The area is very mountainous and is dominated by Gunung Tambora (2,851 m.), an old, originally almost 4,000 m. high volcano which exploded in 1815 in what is known as the greatest eruption in modern geological times.
Both reserves are covered with primary forests dominated by Duabanga moluccana, although on the southern slopes of Gunung Tambora large parts of the original forest has been logged. These southern slopes are covered by Alang-alang. The rest of the area consists of a vast open area, dissected by seasonally dry riverbeds.
In the 6km wide caldera of Gunung Tambora a crater lake exists. The inner slopes are very steep and barren but yet, you can descend and camp near the lake.
