Photo Gallery

Wayang-Windu, the site of a geothermal prospect, is a twin-peaked lava dome of Quaternary age about 40 km south of Bandung, immediately west of Kamojang volcano. Viewed from the west, flat-topped Gunung Wayang (center) rises above cultivated lands to its south. Wayang has a 750-m-wide crescentic crater open to the west and contains four groups of fumaroles. Gunung Windu (right), 1.6 to the SW, has a 350-m-wide crater open to the ESE. The age of the latest eruptive activity from the Wayang-Windu complex is not known.

A steam plume pours from the Wayang fumarole in the summit crater of Gunung Wayang. Fumaroles occur in the summit crater and at Kawah Cibolang (also known as Kawah Bodas) on the SE flank. The crater of Gunung Windu, the other peak of the Wayang-Windu twin volcano, lacks fumarolic activity.
