Details for: Egon
Egon volcano, with its vegetation-free summit lava dome, rises above farmlands at its base. The 1703-m-high Gunung Egon sits astride the narrow waist of eastern Flores Island, and its lower flanks extend nearly to both the Flores Sea on the north and the Savu Sea to the south. The summit has a 350-m-wide, 200-m-deep crater that sometimes contains a lake. Other small crater lakes occur on the flanks of the volcano.
