BackgroundGunung Putri is a peak in an area of eroded Quaternary volcanoes at the northern end of a chain extending north from Galunggung. The Kawah Karaha fumarole field about 1.4 km N of the summit covers an area of 250 x 80 m and contains a sulfur deposit. The Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (Neumann van Padang, 1951) reported an uncertain phreatic eruption in May 1861. Tripp et al. (2002) indicated based on drilling that the Kawah Karaha field is part of a geothermal system originating from an intrusive body below Telaga Bodas (Talagabodas).
