Photo Gallery

Keli Nabe, one of the peaks on the SE margin of the poorly known Sukaria caldera, is seen here from the Roga Ria valley to its north. A small fumarolic area on the western flank contains several vents that eject geyser-like water columns with a smell of hydrogen sulfide. No historical eruptions are known from Sukaria.
