Bagging It!

Wurlali volcano, also known as Damar, is the SW-most historically active volcano in the Banda arc. The 868-m-high andesitic stratovolcano was constructed at the northern end of a 5-km-wide caldera on the eastern side of Damar Island in the Banda Sea. Fumarolic activity occurs in the twin summit craters and on the SE flanks, producing exploitable sulfur deposits. An explosive eruption in 1892 is the only known historical activity (Smithsonian).
