Cikuray, a prominent stratovolcano SW of Garut, is of Quaternary age (van Bemmelen 1949b). Products mainly consist of lava flows of basaltic andesite, with some pyroclastic flow and lahar deposits (Abdurrachman and Yamamoto, 2012). Cikuray, along with Papandayan, are located within the Triangular Volcanic Complex of West Java, a group of Pliocene to Quaternary volcanoes (Abdurrachman et al., 2015; Abdurrachman and Yamamoto, 2012).
