"The small 1247-m-high andesitic volcano of Baluran, dwarfed by its neighbor Ijen volcano to the SW, occupies the very NE tip of Java. Gunung Baluran contains a broad horseshoe-shaped crater breached to the NE. The volcano lies within a national park and game reserve featuring savannah grasslands and monsoon forests. Baluran was considered by van Bemmelen (1949b) to be of Holocene age."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
