Sundoro, a perfect stratovolcano, in Central Java is located close to Sumbing volcano and separated by the latter by a 1400-m-high saddle only.
Historic activity at Sundoro, who last erupted 1971, consisted mainly in small to medium phreatic eruptions from its many summit craters (Segoro Wedi, Segoro Banjaran, Kawah Utara, Kawah Selatan and Sumur Ledakan), and from flank vents (1882 and 1903).

Background

Many parasitic craters and cones, the largest of which is Kembang, occur on the NW-to-southern flanks, and all fed lava flows. A small lava dome occupies the summit crater of the 3136-m-high volcano, and numerous phreatic explosion vents were formed along radial fissure that cut the dome and extend across the crater rim.
Lava flows extend in all directions from the summit crater. Deposits of a large prehistoric debris avalanche are located below the NE flank of Sundoro. Pyroclastic-flow deposits dated at 1720 years before present extend as far as 13 km from the summit.
