Manuk is a small steep-sided island in the Banda volcanic arc. It the easternmost volcano of Indonesia, and located only 750 km north of Darwin, Australia.
Manuk volcano rises 3000 m from the sea floor and forms a small truncated cone above water. It has summit crater with active fumaroles on the west side of the crater rim and inside the crater. At present, the island is uninhabited, but in former times, sulfur was being extracted from the crater on a small scale by Chines traders.
There are no confirmed historical eruptions from Manuk volcano, although there is an uncertain report that a member of the 1874 Challenger Expedition saw smoke rising from the crater of Manuk.
