Indonesia is the country with the most active volcanoes. There are over 76 active volcanoes in Indonesia. This country has the maximum active volcanoes on earth. There are overall 147 volcanoes in Indonesia. Indonesia is one of the countries located in the "Ring of Fire".

The ring of fire encircles the Pacific Ocean which stretches up the west coast of the Americas, across to Asia, looping down to the east of Japan, Indonesia, Philippines and whipping around Australia.

Other countries with high numbers of active volcanoes are the United States, Russia, Japan, Philippines and Australia.

Indonesia is the country that has the most volcanoes. About 76 volcanoes have been recorded as having erupted over the years. Indonesia is a chain of about 18,000 islands located to the north of Australia and is bordered by the Indian and Pacific oceans. The islands are spread over an area similar in size to the continental United States.

Most of the active volcanoes in Indonesia belong to the 3,000 kilometer stretch of the Sundra volcanic Arc. Indonesia holds the record for the highest number of volcanic eruptions, which have produced fatalities, land damage, and tsunamis. This country has 147 volcanoes. Some of which are still active.
