The SE wall of Batur's 10 x 13 km outer caldera rises above the caldera lake, as seen from Batur volcano, which grew within a 7.5-km-wide, inner caldera. Lava flows from 19th century eruptions of Batur volcano, on the island of Bali, form the lake's near shoreline, which is near the margin of the buried eastern rim of the inner caldera. Agung volcano, at the eastern tip of Bali, is visible in the distance.
