Smaller than its prominent namesake on Java, Sumatra's Sumbing volcano has a complicated summit region containing several crater remnants and a 180-m-long crater lake.

Background:

Its only two known historical eruptions, in 1909 and 1921, produced moderate explosions. Hot springs occur at the SW foot of the volcano.
