Type of volcano: Mudvolcano
Location: Central-Java, Indonesia.
Bledug Kuwu is a mud-volcano located in the village of Kuwu on Central Java, 80km east of the city of Semarang. The Bledug Kuwu mud volcano complex forms a low relief, nearly flat surface, about 700 m in diameter. The active system consists of at least three eruption centers. Two main vents typically produce frequent bursts of gas bubbles piercing the mud surface. A major constituent of the gas emitted at Bledug Kuwu is water vapor. In addition to water vapor and CO2, mud volcanoes may emit methane and other gases.
Bledug kuwu was also a popular recreation spot for the Dutch people back in the colonial days of Indonesia.
