The poorly known Sukaria caldera in central Flores Island, NE of Iya volcano, is 8 km in diameter. A 750-m-high northern caldera wall rises above the village of Sukaria in the center of the caldera. The southern caldera wall is very irregular. A small fumarolic area on the western flank contains several vents that eject geyser-like water columns with a smell of hydrogen sulfide. No historical eruptions are known from the caldera.
