Topology & Geology;
The shape and structure of Mount Talang, according to Neumann van Padang (1951, p.28), is a twin with the ‘Arbaa Market’ which has been extinguished. The peak does not contain the crater. The site of the eruption and the fumarola eruption is a valley over 300 m and 30 to 90 m wide between altitude 2360 – 2460 meters above sea level.

According to Akkersdijk (1927, p.74), Talang mountain is divided by a circle from andesite into a 10 – 40 m wide crater 50 m deep.

There are two lakes, probably previously a crater, which is Lake Talang, an area of ​​1950 x 1050 m and a depth of 88 m. Located at an altitude of 1674 meters above sea level, and next to it is a small lake of 400 x 100 with an altitude of 1707 meters above sea level.

Hot springs are at the foot of the mountain, which is in Bt. Kili, Batubarjanjang, Buah Batung and Sapan. Based on geologic data summarized, there is found a hot cloud spread consisting of blocks and volcanic ash which is quite wide in the slopes and feet of the Mountain, as well as a fairly wide spread of lava, indicating that Mount Talang has erupted quite large in the history of its growth.
