Beautiful Crater Lake in Indonesia

What is a crater lake? According to wikipedia, the crater lake is the mass of water (lakes) that cover the surface of a volcanic crater. Approximately 12% of 700s volcanic crater on earth covered by water mass. In Indonesia crater lake usually called kawah.

Crater lake which I will discuss here is a crater lake where the water contains sulfur gases (H2S and SO2) and other gases such as chlorine gas, fluoride, CO and CO2, not the lake water is fresh craters such as Lake Toba. In Indonesia there are several crater lakes.
When I browsing through the internet , I found some famous and as I know they are also beautiful crater lake in Indonesia, namely:

Kelimutu Lake iKelimutus a crater lake located at the top of the mountain Kelimutu, in Ende, Flores Island, Nusa Tenggara Timu. I put this in the first rank because of its uniqueness. Kelimutu Lake consists of 3 lakes, where the color of lakes always changed.
Kawah Putih (white crater) is a crater lake of Mount Patuha with height 2434 meters above sea level with temperatures between 8-22 ° C. On the summit of Mount Patuha there is Saat crater which is located to the west and beneath Putih crater with a height of 2194 meters above sea level, Saat mean low tide in Sundanese language . Both craters were formed by an eruption that occurred around the X and XII centuries ago.
