Ungaran volcanUngaran volcano is a probably extinct volcano south of Semarang city at the N coast of Java. Highly eroded, the mountain is the remnant of a stratovolcano that underwent repeated flank collapse. At present, there are only fumaroles and warm springs located on the volcano's flanks as signs of activity.
Introduction:Gunung Ungaran volcano is located at the northern end of the same transverse chain of volcanoes comprising highly active Merapi in the south and less active Merbabu in the center.
Ungaran was formed in three stages. The youngest lava flows and cinder cones were erupted around 10,000 years ago and lie south of 3 large remnant structural blocks attributed to an older edifice of the Ungaran volcano.
