Enggano Map (By   Regen Rais )
Enggano is one of the outermost islands in Indonesia. Enggano is in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Enggano has a unique geological history. Enggano Island was formed due to the rise of the base of the Indian Ocean due to tectonic activity. The emergence of the Enggano island from the bottom of the Indian Ocean made this island never met Sumatra.
