Photo Gallery

Kembar volcano, the small forested peak at left-center, is seen in this aerial view from the north. The Gayolesten fumarole field is located on the flanks of the Pleistocene Gunung Kembar volcano. Active fumaroles and hot springs are present at several locations. The Kembar complex, located at the junction of two fault systems, is an andesitic shield volcano capped by a complex of craters and cones. The parallel trace of the major Sumatra fault system forms the valley diagonally cutting across the image to south of Kembar.
