Rift Valley volcanoes, satellite radar image. This is the Crater Highlands area in Tanzania, viewed from an orbiting Space Shuttle, looking south-west towards Lake Eyasi (top). The distance from top to bottom is 230 kilometres. Variation in elevation of the land is colour-coded, from green (lowest) to yellow, red and white (highest). Ngorongoro Crater (upper centre) has a lake inside it. Below that is Mount Loolmalasin (3648 metres), the highest peak in the area. Ela Naibori Crater is right of Loolmalasin. Other mountains include Kitumbeine (lower left) and Gelai (lower right).
