Tengger Caldera is a volcanic complex consisting of five overlapping stratovolcanoes (Mounts Batok, Bromo, Kursi, Watangan and Widodaren) forming out of the ancient volcano Tengger, which was formed about 820,000 years ago, situated in East Java, Indonesia.
In this panoramic view are visible Mount Batok (in the front; an inactive volcano with lush green vegetation on its rises), Mount Bromo (the smaller pyroclastic cone, to the left of Mount Batok), Widodaren Caldera (visible on the right of Mount Batok) with the other mountains all part of the large Tengger sand sea, not visible in this view due to the early morning cloud cover. Lastly, Mount Semeru, the tallest and most active volcano in Java, is also visible – right at the back.
