Sangenges (also known as Puncak Ngenges) was mapped as Pleistocene to early Holocene by Garvin (2002, shown in Khant et al., 2013). Edifices immediately NE (Sesset) and SE (Batu Lanteh) are interpreted as Miocene-Pliocene features. This volcanic group forms the northern part of western Sumbawa, in the West Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia. The 7-km-diameter caldera is open to the NNW.
