Along with Mount Sindoro, Sumbing Mountain forms a twin mountain landscape, The gap between this mountain and Mount Sindoro is traversed by a provincial road connecting Temanggung city and Wonosobo city. This street is commonly dubbed as “Kledung Pass”.
Because it is composed of very hard igneous rocks (lava), almost all the slopes of the rugged terrain are very arid, generally only overgrown with bushes, even at a height of approximately 3000 m only overgrown with grasses whose leaves are hairy.
The volcanic crater of the volcano is on the summit called Belirang Crater, the height of 2394 m. In Belirang Crater there are 3 (three) depressions (center of eruption) filled with water, named ‘Telaga Nirwana’, ‘Lake Mabuk’, and ‘Tapak Sulaeman’.
Current volcanic activity is solfatar and fumarole on the eastern crater wall.

History of eruption;
The eruption in history was recorded only once in 1730, which occurred in the peak crater, where the lava dome formed with the lava flow toward the lowest crater lip was estimated to occur in that year (Junghuhn, 1853 and Traverne, 1926)…

Topology & Geology;
topography of Sumbing Mountain can be divided into two units of morology, namely; Morphology of Slope Areas: The morphology of the slopes is the body area of the volcano between the altitudes of approximately 1400 to 3300m above sea level. The slope of the slopes has a slope of about 15o between an altitude of 1400 to 2000m above sea level. This morphological unit is composed of relatively soft rock and deeply sown by streams. Baatuannya consist of lapili, tuff, tuff till tuf finely rocky floating. The lower slopes indicate a low wavy area, the dominant rock composed of pyroclastics. The steep slopes have a slope of about 25 ° -30 ° from an altitude above 2000 to about 3300m above sea level. On the upper slopes there are many escarpments and narrow and deep grooves of the river. The steep slope section of this rock is dominantly composed of lava (lava flow) that forms a ridge of hills between the upper streams of the river. Parasitic cones Around 200m above sea level appears at the northern foot, its peak at 1292m above sea level, while the parasitic Namu cone appears at the foot of the landmark, its peak at 1033m above sea level. Morphology of the Peak Region: The peak area of Mount Sumbing is between 3260-3571m above sea level. The crater is about 800m diameter, oval-shaped like a horseshoe form that opens to the northeast. The depth of the crater is approximately 100-150m. Bunds or crater lips that resemble the shape of this horseshoe flanking a 450m wide lava dome that stretches and descends to the northeast. leleran lava from this lava dome to a height of approximately 2400m above sea level to form lava tongue. High lava dome approximately 50m from the bottom of the crater or approximately 3250m above sea level, the rock consists of andesit hornblende. The crater of rock consists of andesite hipersten augit hornblende, which on some walls / cliffs of the crater looks solid structure meniang.At the bottom of the crater there are 4 narrow plains, the remnants of the former eruption hole filled with sand-sized loose material, lapili until the lava lava dome:
The northern narrow plateau (Crater A) is 3159m high, located between the lava lava (lava dome 1730) and the northern border.
The western narrow plain (Crater B), lies between the 1730 lava dome and the western border.
The southern narrow plateau (C C) of 3183m is located between the 1730 lava dome and the south border.
The narrow plain east of the narrow plain No.2 (Kawah D), 3196m above sea level is located between the 1730 lava dome and the north-south trending dike.
