Segara Wedi (Tengger Caldera)

Segara Wedi*  is a post-caldera cone located in the Tengger Caldera, East-Java, Indonesia. The cone is likely extinct, and is located immidiately S/SW of the active cone of Bromo. Segera Wedi last erupted in 0330 ± 50 years, according to radiocarbon (uncorrected) information made available at the Global Volcanism Program.

*The crater is sometimes also referred to as Segera Wedi Lor/Segera Wedi Kidul. I`ve not been able to establish what is the official name for the crater, however `Segara Wedi` seem to be the most used.

Segara Wedi Tengger Lake
Segera Wedi holds a small body of water in the back. On my last visit to the area in December 2018, this was not the case. However its the middle of the rainy season now in March so a lot of rain water could have accumulated. (23th March 2019)

The Segero Wedi. It is now the rainy season, and you may notice a body of water have formed in the back of the crater. Who knows, in the future this crater may turn into a crater lake? (20th February)
