Bledug Detil Mud Volcano (Grobogan, Central-Java)

Published: 15th August 2019

Type of volcano: Mudvolcano

Location: Grobogan, Central-Java, Indonesia.

When I arrived in the area I did not know of the presence of this mudvolcano, as I only noticed it when visiting the neighboring ` Bledug Banjar. Their locations are only a couple hundred meters apart. The locals I met called this mudvolcano `Bledug Detil`.  It is located within a village between two houses. On closer inspection, I could see that the slow outflow of mud have shaped the mudflow into a shield structure. Quite liquid mud and water was present on the top of it. Bubbles of mud rose trough the two central pools located at the center/top. The floor of the mudvolcano had patches of salt grains.  Bledug Detil have the looks of being a rather recent mud flow.
