The largest of the outer Islands is the Island of Sulawesi . Sulawesi contains around 20 active volcanoes, Sumbawa and Flores boasts around 30 and the South Moluccas around 15 volcanoes.

Here are two of the famous volcanoes in this area

  • Tambora Volcano
    The most notable in this area is the Tambora volcano in the Banda Sea, on the island of Sumbawa . Its eruption is the only one in Indonesia that could be compared to the Toba volcano eruption. More about the Tambora Volcano and its eruption could be seen here.

    Another famous volcano is the Kelimutu volcano in the Flores Island with its three-coloured, constantly color-changing lakes, the lake ‘for old people', the lake ‘of young men and maidens' and the ‘bewitched lake'.
