Klabat is an isolated symmetrical stratovolcano that rises to 1995 m near the eastern tip of the elongated northern arm of Sulawesi Island. The volcano lies east of the city of Manado (also spelled Menado) and is the highest in Sulawesi. Klabat has a shallow lake in its 170 x 250 m summit crater. No verified historical eruptions have occurred from this volcano, but fumarolic activity has occurred within historical time. A report of an eruption in 1683 probably was from nearby Tongkoko volcano.
