Lake Toba
2014-04-08 13:26:50

Lake Toba, also known as Toba, is a supervolcano and lake that is located in Indonesia on the island of Sumatra. The volcano reaches an elevation of 2,953 feet and the lake stretches across an area of sixty-two miles and is the largest volcanic lake on earth. Toba holds a caldera complex that is comprised of four volcanic craters that overlap each other, the youngest of which is noted as the largest Quaternary caldera. Visible features within the lake include three craters, four cones, and...
