The Lewotobi "Husband and Wife" twin volcano is composed of the Lewotobi Lakilaki (seen in this view) and Lewotobi Perempuan stratovolcanoes, whose summits are less than 2 km apart on a NW-SE line. The summits of both volcanoes contain lava domes. Lewotobi Perempuan has had historical eruptions only in 1921 and 1935, whereas Lewotobi Lakilaki is one of the most active volcanoes on Flores Island, with frequent eruptions in the 19th and 20th centuries.
