The broad, irregular summit of Kelut volcano contains several lava domes and a crater lake that has been the source of frequent violent and sometimes devastating eruptions. Construction of outlet tunnels following an eruption in 1919 that killed 5,110 people has reduced the number of fatalities from pyroclastic flows and lahars during subsequent eruptions.
