Patuha Volcano (Kawah putih)

The forested twin volcano Patuha rises SW of the plain of Bandung. The andesitic volcano contains two summit craters 600 m apart along a NW-SE line. The NW-most and highest summit crater is dry, but the SE crater, Kawah Putih, contains a shallow greenish-white crater lake. The lake gets its colors from minerals within the volcano, most notably Sulphur.  No historical eruptions are known from Patuha.
