An aerial view from the SE overlooks three nested craters at the summit plateau of Tanzania's Kilimajaro volcano. The outer crater is 875 m wide and the inner pit is 340 m wide and 130 m deep. These craters, constructed within a 2.4 x 3.6 km summit caldera, are the youngest features of Kilimajaro volcano. Fumarolic activity occurs from several locations on the crater floor and on the wall of the inner crater.
