The crater of Talagabodas contains a large acid, sulphur saturated warm lake. Warm springs, mud pots, and fumaroles are present around the lake. In 1913 and 1921 the lake changed color and in 1927 an increase in fumarole activity was observed along with geyser-like gas eruptions in the lake.
Talagabodas is infamous for its toxic gasses (CO2, H2S) that have frequently killed animals inside the Pajagalan valley on the NE flank and into the Kawah Saat geothermal area south of the crater lake.
