The summit of 1703-m-high Egon volcano in eastern Flores Island, seen here in 1971, contains a 350-m-wide, 200-m deep crater that sometimes contains a crater lake.  Little historical activity has been reported from Egon; the most recent was a possible explosive eruption in 1907. Copyrighted photo by Katia and Maurice Krafft, 1971.
