Mount Merapi National Park management announced on June 18 that it planned to provide a selfie spot for visitors.

The head of the national park, Suwignyo, said that the plan came about following last month's accident, which resulted in the death of climber Eri Yunanto while taking a selfie on one of the crests.

"That incident has encouraged us to set up a place for photos," he said as quoted by tempo.co.

He hoped that the facility would reduce the number of climbers who took photos in dangerous places.

The selfie spot will be built approximately 1 kilometer from the peak of Mount Merapi.
