 Check out this live aerial google map view of the Mount Papandayan Volcano in Indonesia. Enjoy viewing this aerial map overlooking the Mount Papandayan Volcano.   Mount Papandayan is a complex stratovolcano, located in Garut Regency, West Java, Indonesia. At the summit, there are four large craters, and it contains active fumarole fields. The1772 eruption caused the northeast flank to collapse, producing a catastrophic debris avalanche that destroyed 40 villages and killed nearly 3000 people. It truncated the volcano into a broad shape with two peaks and a flat 1.1 km wide of Alun-Alun crater in the middle, making it look like a twin volcano. One of the peaks is called Papandayan and the other is Mount Puntang.[1]

Since 1772, only small phreatic eruptions had occurred prior to an explosive eruption that began in November 2002.
