Fecha / HoraRevista / ProfundidadDistanciaUbicación
Talang, which forms a twin volcano with the extinct Pasar Arbaa volcano, has two crater lakes on its flanks.

The largest of these is 1 x 2 km wide Danau Talang. No historical eruptions have occurred from the summit of the volcano, which lacks a crater. All historical eruptions from Gunung Talang volcano have involved small-to-moderate 19th-century explosive activity originating from a series of small craters in a valley on the upper NE flank.
