Details for: Tangkubanparahu
The broad, shield-like stratovolcano Tangkubanparahu, known in local legend as the mountain of the "upturned boat," dominates the skyline immediately north of Indonesia's former capital city of Bandung. The volcano is truncated by the 6 x 8 km Pleistocene Sunda caldera. A series of nine overlapping craters forming a 1 x 1.5 km wide elliptical depression at the summit of a post-caldera cone are a popular tourist destination. Only minor phreatic eruptions have occurred in historical time. Photo by Tom Casadevall, 1987 (U.S. Geological Survey).
