Salak volcano is at the NE end of an old eroded volcanic chain. Historic eruptions from Salak volcano were phreatic explosions from craters on its flank in a prominent fumarole area. Salak volcano is an area with intense hydrothermal exploration.

Background:

Flank cones occur on the SW flank and at the northern foot of the forested volcano. The summit is truncated by 2 large breached craters, one to the NE and one to the WN. The western crater breach originated from a debris avalanche that left a deposit extensing 10 km to the WNW from the summit.
