batok volcano in the tengger caldera

The small Batok Volcano is located in Tengger Caldera, which is the 10 Km wide crater of a super volcano.­

The Tengger Caldera is like a flat desert covered with soft volcanic ash, called Lautan Pasir (Sea of Sand).­ The caldera is surrounded by cliffs that are between 200m and 600m high, and can be accessed only by a couple of dirt-roads and foot trails.­

The village of Cemoro Lawang is located across the Tengger Caldera from here (on top of the cliff, in the center-left of this photo), and the Bromo Volcano is behind the Batok Volcano.­
