Kawah Karaha is a fumarole field at the northern and older end of the regional N-S trending volcanic chain comprising Galunggung volcano near Garut. Kawah Karaha fumarole field covers an area of 250 x 80 m and contains a sulfur deposit.

Background:

The last eruption of Kawah Karaha volcano is unknown. A phreatic eruption in May 1861 reported in the Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (Neumann van Padang, 1951) is discredited by other authors (e.g. the Global Volcanism Program, Smithsonian Institution).
