The twin volcanoes Lokon (on the left) and Empung (on the right) rise above Tondano Plain.  Steam rises from Tompaluan, a double crater between the two peaks.  The higher peak, 1580-m-high Lokon, has a flat, craterless summit, whereas Empung, which was active prior to 1800, has a 400-m-wide summit crater.  All eruptions of Lokon-Empung since 1826 have originated from Tompaluan crater between the two peaks. Photo by Ruska Hadian, 1986 (Volcanological Survey of Indonesia).
