Mount Gede or 'Gunung Gede' is a stratovolcano in West Java, Indonesia. The volcano contains two peaks with Mount Gede as one peak and Mount Pangrango as the other one. Three major cities, Cianjur, Sukabumi and Bogor, are located in the volcano complex at the east, south and northwest, respectively. Seven craters are located in the complex: Baru, Gumuruh, Lanang, Kawah Leutik, Ratu, Sela and Wadon and historical volcanic activity has been recorded since the 16th century. With the amalgamation and growth of Greater Jakarta, dense suburban growth has engulfed the fringes of the volcano, home to roughly 4 million people.
