The irregular summit of Raung volcano, seen here from near the village of Jampit in the caldera of neighboring Ijen volcano to its NE, is truncated by a 2-km-wide caldera.  Frequent explosive eruptions during historical time keep the summit of the volcano unvegetated. Copyrighted photo by Katia and Maurice Krafft, 1976.
