"The forested twin volcano Gunung 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. Kawah Putih is mined for sulfur. A large debris-avalanche deposit produced by collapse of the volcano extends to the NE. The volcano was formed during the late Pleistocene, but has a youthful morphology. No historical eruptions are known from Patuha."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
