Hot pools such as this, fumaroles, steaming hydrothermally altered ground, and mud pots are common thermal features at the Kawah Kamojang geothermal field south of Bandung. The 14 km2 thermal area, occupying a densely forested graben-like structure on the slopes of a Quaternary volcanic massif, is the site of the first developed geothermal field in Indonesia.
