The Sarik volcanic andesitic/basaltic center consists of two young cones with vegetated, but uneroded surfaces.

Background:

The andesitic-dacitic Gajah center, 10 km to the SW, consists of a single cone with a rubbly lava flow. Both centers were considered to be of Pleistocene or Holocene age (Rock et al., 1983).
