The massive Arjuno-Welirang volcanic complex (left) and the smaller Gunung Penanggungan volcano (right) are seen from the SE across a broad valley from the summit of Tengger caldera. A chain of small cones and craters extends across the Arjuno-Welirang complex, while the flanks of the small Penanggungan stratovolcano are drapped with massive lava flows from satellitic vents.

Gunung Penanggungan, seen here from Tengger caldera to its east, is one of Java's most revered mountains. The small stratovolcano was constructed immediately north of the Arjuno-Welirang massif, whose flanks form the ridge at the left. Lava flows from flank vents give the 1653-m-high Penanggungan volcano an irregular profile. They descend all flanks of the volcano, and pyroclastic-flow deposits form an apron around it.

Three young volcanoes in eastern Java are seen in this aerial view from the NE. The Arjuno-Welirang massif lies at the left-center, with 3339-m-high Gunung Arjuno forming the high point of the complex and light-colored Gunung Welirang to the NW (right). In the background is the Kawi-Butak massif, with 2868-m-high Gunung Butak forming the high point and Gunung Kawi to its right. The smaller conical peak of Penanggungan rises above lowlands in the foreground.
