Java, Indonesia

With a population of over 136 million people, the Island of Java is home to 60% of Indonesians. It is the worlds most populated island. Though it is an island, its highest peak soars to a spectacular 12,000 feet. Java is a land defined by volcanoes and eruptions regularly occur; often times with fatalities. Its climate is hot and humid and has a typical tropical landscape. Tea and Coffee are grown in Java.
