Bukit Daun
A protected recreation forest

Bukit Daun ('Leaf Forest') is a protected recreation forest located between Bengkulu and Curup, at some 45 kilometers from Bengkulu. It is inhabited by a great variety of animal species. Located in a sparsely populated region of Sumatra, Bukit Daun forms a twin volcano with Gedang volcano, which is truncated by a 3-km-wide probable caldera.

The 600 meter wide summit crater of Bukit Daun contains a crater lake; a smaller crater lake is found at Tologo Kecil ('Small Lake') on the southwestern flank of the mountain. No historical eruptions are known from Bukit Daun, although active fumaroles occur in the southwestern flank crater.
