The Lunar Crater volcanic field is a zone of vulcanism covering over 300 km2 at the southern end of the Pancake Range in the Great Basin Desert, Nevada. It contains numerous cinder cones and lava flows, fissures, and, most visibly, the 150 m deep Lunar Crater, a 1050 m wide and nearly circular maar (explosion crater) believed to have formed about 15,000 years ago.
Lunar Crater is one of Nevada's 6 National Natural Landmarks.
Exploring the unknown: We sometimes invite you to "test" new itineraries or destinations with us. Such trips are a reduced cost and require a higher degree of flexibility, but often offer a great deal of adventure.
Batu Tara photos: A remote island in the Flores Sea of Indonesia formed by a single volcano that has been in strong strombolian eruption for years. We regularly lead expeditions to there where we camp several days to observe it.
