Gede MT. (2,958 Masl)

” A Perfect weekend hike from Indonesia ”

OVERVIEW

Mount Gede or gunung Gede is a stratovolcano in West Java, Indonesia. The volcano contains tow peaks with mount Gede as one peak and mount Pangrango for the other one. Three major cities, Cianjur, Sukabumi and Bogor, are located in the volcano complex at the east, south and northwest, respectively along with suburban growth. Seven craters are located in the complex : Baru, Gumuruh, (2,927 m), Lanang (2,800 m), Kawah Leutik, Ratu (2,800 m), Sela (2,709 m) and Wadon (2,600 m). Historical volcanic activity has been recorded since the 16th century. With the amalgamation and growth of Greater Jakarta with those 3 cities, dense suburban growth has engulfed the fringes of the volcano, home to roughly 4 milion people. Though not listed as one of the Decade Volcanoes or throught to produce large eruptions, the huge populations nearby give a potential for severe destruction if indeed a large eruption did occur.
