Named for the two high points on the crater rim, the Pesawaran-Ratai edifice was probably a typical stratovolcanic cone that appears to have collapsed to the north, where the crater has breached. The volcano and surrounding area has been mapped as Quaternary on Indonesian geological maps (Mangga 1994, Suharno et al., 2015). Hot springs and geysers are present on the S flank (Suharno et al., 2015).
