Kunyit volcano lies about 10 km south of Lake Kerinci, well to the north of its location listed in Neumann van Padang (1951). The summit of the dacitic, 2151-m-high Kunyit volcano contains two craters open to the south, the uppermost of which has a small crater lake. The age of the latest eruptive activity from Kunyit is not known, although fumarolic activity occurs at the youngest crater on the northern side of the summit area.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Kunyit. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Kunyit page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
