Gede volcano is one of the most prominent in western Java, forming a twin volcano with Pangrango volcano. Gunung Pangrango, constructed over the NE rim of a 3 x 5 km caldera, forms the high point of the complex at just over 3000 m elevation. Many lava flows are visible on the flanks of the younger Gunung Gede, including some that may have been erupted in historical time. The steep-walled summit crater has migrated about 1 km NNW over time.

last known eruption: 1957 (as of june 2017)
