The Gunung Talagabodas stratovolcano lies immediately north of the more well-known Galunggung volcano. Talagabodas, also spelled Telaga Bodas, is one of the older Quaternary volcanoes in an arcuate N-S trending volcano group east of the city of Garut and is built up of andesitic lavas and pyroclastics. Younger pyroclastics from Gunung Putri-Eweranda overlap the Talagabodas products in the north. The crater of Talagabodas has shifted 1.3 km north from the summit crater of Canar and contains a large sulfur-saturated lake. Fumaroles, mud pots, and a warm spring are found around the lake, which has an elevated temperature. The age of the most recent eruption is not known. Changes in lake color occurred in 1913 and 1921, and expanded solfataric activity was reported in 1927. Suffocating gases have frequently killed animals that have wandered into the Pajagalan valley on the NE flank and the Kawah Saat geothermal area south of the crater lake. The Kawah Karaha fumaroles 9 km N are also part of the geothermal system (Tripp et al., 2002).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Talagabodas. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Talagabodas 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.

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.
