Mount Tambora is an active volcano on the island of Sumbawa.

Before the historic eruption of 1815, the volcano raised as high as 4'300 m, making it one of the tallest peaks of the Indonesian archipelago. The 1815 eruption with a rating of seven on the Volcanic Explosivity Index is known as the largest eruption since the Lake Taupo eruption in 181 C.E.. The eruption created global climate anomalies and 1816 became known as the year without summer.
