Mount Kelud

Mount Kelud is located on the border between Kediri and Blitar regency, East Java about 27 km east of downtown Kediri.

Mount Kelud is a relatively small stratovolcano with a summit elevation at 1731 M above sea level or 1650 M above the densely populated and fertile plains of Kediri and Blitar that surround the volcano.

Kelud volcano is considered as one of the most dangerous volcanoes of Java because of its frequent eruptions. The eruptive activity has typically generated deadly lahars, pyroclastic flows and surges that have claimed more than 15,000 lives since 1500 AD and caused widespread fatalities and destruction. The crater lake of Kelud is famous for its potential to release devastating lahars whenever an eruption occurs.
