Bagging It!

The small 2 x 4 km island of Serua is the emergent summit of a volcano rising 3600 m above the Banda Sea floor. A truncated central cone surrounded by an old somma wall is capped by 641-m-high Gunung Wuarlapna lava dome. The andesitic Serua volcano, also known as Legatala, lies near the center of the Banda arc and is one of the most active of the Banda Sea volcanoes, with many eruptions recorded since the 17th century (Smithsonian).
