Steam rises from fumaroles on the wall of Tompaluan crater in May 1985 during a quiescent period at the frequently active volcano.  The crater, which has been the source of most historical eruptions from Lokon-Empung volcano, lies in a saddle between the two peaks.  The floor of the 250 x 150 m wide crater sometimes contains a small lake. Photo by Ruska Hadian, 1985 (Volcanological Survey of Indonesia).
