Gunung Talakmau, a massive compound volcano rising above the western coastal plain of Sumatra, is seen here from the NE. The volcano was constructed along a NE-SW line and rises to 2912 m, more than 700 m above its twin volcano Pasaman to the SW. The NE-most and highest of three craters at the summit of Talakmau (left center) is filled by a lava dome.
