Wayang-Windu, the site of a geothermal prospect, is a twin-peaked lava dome of Quaternary age about 40 km south of Bandung, immediately west of Kamojang volcano. Gunung Wayang, with a 750-m-wide crescentic crater open to the west, contains four groups of fumaroles. Gunung Windu, 1.6 to the SW, has a 350-m-wide crater open to the ESE. The age of the latest eruptive activity from Wayang-Windu is not known.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Wayang-Windu. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Wayang-Windu page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Wayang-Windu, the site of a geothermal prospect, is a twin-peaked lava dome of Quaternary age about 40 km south of Bandung, immediately west of Kamojang volcano. Viewed from the west, flat-topped Gunung Wayang (center) rises above cultivated lands to its south. Wayang has a 750-m-wide crescentic crater open to the west and contains four groups of fumaroles. Gunung Windu (right), 1.6 to the SW, has a 350-m-wide crater open to the ESE. The age of the latest eruptive activity from the Wayang-Windu complex is not known.

A steam plume pours from the Wayang fumarole in the summit crater of Gunung Wayang. Fumaroles occur in the summit crater and at Kawah Cibolang (also known as Kawah Bodas) on the SE flank. The crater of Gunung Windu, the other peak of the Wayang-Windu twin volcano, lacks fumarolic activity.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
