The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Tondano Caldera. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Tondano Caldera page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Photo Gallery


A fumarole rises above an area of extensive hydrothermal alteration at Raindang, on the western flank of Gunung Lahendong, one of several post-caldera cones in the 20 x 30 km Tondano caldera in northern Sulawesi. The caldera floor is dotted with pyroclastic cones, obsidian flows, and numerous hydrothermal areas. No historical eruptions are known from the caldera itself, although several stratovolcanoes constructed along its rim have been historically active.
