Gunung Inierie, seen here from the SE, is the highest volcano on Flores Island. A plume was noted in June 1911 and is sometimes visible from the crater on the eastern side of the summit.

Inierie, the highest volcano on Flores Island, rises above hilly terrain of the central highlands below its northern flank. It has an elliptical crater immediately E of its summit that occasionally produces plumes.

The Inielika chain of cones and craters stretches across the central highlands of Flores Island at right in this view from the NE. The peak at left center is Gunung Inierie volcano, the highest on the island. On the far left horizon is Wolo Bobo, a feature of the Bajawa cinder cone complex. The high irregular peak on the right horizon is part of the Lobobutu caldera wall, with various Inielika craters in the foreground.

Two of the many summit craters of Inielika can be seen in the left foreground. It is a broad, low volcano in central Flores Island that was constructed within the Lobobutu caldera. The complex summit includes ten craters, some of which contain lakes. A phreatic explosion that formed a new crater in 1905 was the volcano's only eruption during the 20th century. Inierie volcano is the prominent peak on the right horizon.
