Mount Popa in central Myanmar is seen here from the town of Popa on the W flank. The summit of the volcano forms the back headwall of a large horseshoe-shaped collapse scar produced by collapse of the edifice. This 1.6-km-wide, 850-m-deep crater opens to the NW, in the direction of the ridge on the left horizon. The 3 km3 debris avalanche deposit to the N covers an area of 27 km2.
