Gunung Talagabodas stratovolcano lies immediately north of the more well-known Galunggung volcano. The crater of Talagabodas (which means "White Lake") contains this large sulfur-saturated lake. Fumaroles, mud pots, and a warm spring are found around the 400-500 m wide lake, which has an elevated temperature. Changes in lake color occurred in 1913 and 1921, and expanded solfataric activity was reported in 1927.
