Photo Gallery


The broad Geureudong complex (right) is a massive, 30-km-wide volcanic complex that rises immediately north of the conical Bur ni Telong volcano (left). The 2885-m-high Bur ni Geureudong is Pleistocene in age, but solfataras and hot springs are found on its northern and southern flanks. The Pupandji pyroclastic cone was constructed on its SE flank, adjacent to two maars with diameters of 300 and 60 m.
