BALI ' s highest volcano Mount Agung appears on the brink of larger, more violent eruption as it spews out a massive ash cloud and destructive cold lava , officials have warned.

There is a four-kilometre no-go zone around Agung.

It remained on alert level, the second highest danger warning, while the holiday island's Ngurah Rai airport stayed open.

An earlier eruption in November stranded thousands of tourists and pounded Bali's lucrative tourism industry, the backbone of its economy.

Ash is dangerous for planes because it makes runways slippery and can be sucked into their engines.

Agung, about 70 kilometres from the tourist hub of Kuta, has been erupting periodically since it rumbled back to life last year.

Tens of thousands of locals fled to evacuation centres after last year's activity.

The last major eruption of Agung in 1963 killed around 1,600 people.

Indonesia is situated on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", a vast zone of geological instability where the collision of tectonic plates causes frequent quakes and major volcanic activity.
