Guntur is composed of older volcanic complexes on the NW and a younger group of cones on the SE. The youngest cone, Guntur (whose name means "thunder"), has been the source of frequent explosive eruptions in the 19th century. This view is from the Volcanological Survey of Indonesia observatory on the south side of the volcano. The peak at the right is Gunung Picung. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1995 (Smithsonian Institution).
