Background

The former is eroded and Pleistocene in age, but has solfataras and hot springs on its flanks. The historically active Bur ni Telong volcano was constructed on the southern flank of Bur ni Geureudong, 4.5 km from its summit, and grew to a height of 2624 m, 34 m above that of Geureudong. The summit crater of Bur ni Telong has migrated to the ESE, leaving arcuate crater rims. Lava flows are exposed on the southern flank. Explosive eruptions were recorded during the 19th and 20th centuries
