As Flores is part of a volcanic belt which stretches from Sumatra through Java and Bali to the Banda Sea, more than 17 volcanoes lie on this around 400km long, snake-shaped island. The highest, still-active volcanoes are Mount Egon (1703m) in Sikka District and Mount Inerie (2245m) in the Ngada District.

However, the most famous volcano is the extinct Kelimutu with its tri-colored crater lakes, shimmering in green, turquoise, and black-red. Although many of the volcanoes in Flores are not classified as active, they display a number of post-volcanic formations worth seeing, such as calderas, basalt columns, and volcanic lakes.
