Lake Hibara in the distance was created in 1888 when the partial collapse of Ko-Bandai volcano produced a large debris avalanche that traveled 11 km, nearly to the far end of the lake. The area in front of the lake and the islands in the lake are part of the debris avalanche deposit. The steep wall in the foreground is part of the back headwall of the avalanche scarp.
