Most of the extensive dark lava flows in the foreground were erupted during 1963-64 from vents near the Batur III cone on the lower SW flank of Batur stratovolcano, viewed here from the village of Penelokan on the southern rim of Batur's outer caldera. The lava flows reached the 7.5-km-wide inner caldera floor and destroyed 16 houses at Tamansari village. Activity has been concentrated along the NE-SW-trending chain of cones and craters.
