There are two cones in the eastern part of the lake is the new Mount Barujari has height of 2,376 meters above sea level and Gunung Mas or Mount delegation, height 2,110 meters above sea level.

Essentially rock is lava and pyroclastic fallout. Morphology volcanic cones occupy the inner walls of the caldera and the cliffs of the caldera.

Slope ranges between 30-70 degrees, with a radial flow pattern of the river, while essentially a fall-pyroclastic rocks.
While the morphology of high hills and low ridge-corrugated morphology respectively located in the eastern, western and parts of the slopes of mountain eruption complex peaks and slopes down Rinjani complex. Each of the two final morphology characterized by having a steep slope with a slope angle of 30-80 degrees and the angle of slope of less than 30 degrees.

Product caldera or crater is the result of paroxysmal eruption (the eruption sweeping secrete large material) Mount Rinjani Old destroyed the summit of Old Mount Rinjani.
