Sumatra's Sumbing has a complicated summit region containing several crater remnants and a 180-m-long crater lake. The forested volcano is seen here from Renah Kemumu village on the WSW flank. Two historical eruptions of Gunung Sumbing occurred in 1909 and 1921, producing moderate explosions. Hot springs occur at the SW foot of the volcano.
