Gunung Guntur at the right center is the youngest cone of the volcanic complex. It consists of a younger SW part consisting of cones lying along a NW-SE trend and an older, more eroded complex to the NW. Youthful lava flows can be seen on the lower right-hand flanks of Guntur, whose name means "thunder," a reflection of frequent eruptions in the 19th century.
