Kelimutu Volcano, Indonesia

A double crater lake of Kelimutu volcano on Indonesia's Flores Island is seen in this aerial view from the SW.

Tiwu Nua Muri Kooh Tai (Lake of Young Men and Maiden) on the left and Tiwu Ata Polo (Bewitched, or Enchanted Lake) are separated by a narrow septum about 35 m high.

Phreatic eruptions have occurred from Tiwu Nua Muri Kooh Tai in the 19th and 20th centuries, and continuous upwelling occurs at both lakes.
