Photo Gallery

The large circular, forested volcano below and to the left of the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right) is Karang volcano. Karang was constructed to the SE of the 15-km-wide Pleistocene Danau caldera, whose northern and eastern rims and light-colored floor are seen above the center of the image. Two craters lie on the SE flank of 1778-m-high Karang volcano, the highest peak in this volcanic region at the western tip of Java. The Pujut Peninsula lies at the upper right.
