Gunung Inierie volcano is an impressive stratovolcano dominating south-central Flores and overlooking the Sawu Sea, and forms the highest peak of Flores. The unvegetated summit has a small steep-walled crater. No historic eruptions are known from the volcano, but there are sometimes reports of "smoke" visible from the crater, as in June 1911. There are hot springs on the northern flank of the volcano and geothermal areas to the east and NE.

Background:

West of Inierie, the remant somma wall of an older volcano is known as Rokka Peak. A NNW-SSE-trending chain of volcanoes extends from across a low saddle to the NE of Inierie, including 1400-m-high Wolo Bobo and the Bajawa cinder cone complex.
The age of the latest eruption of Inierie is unknown. An eruption of adjacient Wolo Bobo was radiocarbon dated at about 10,000 years ago.
