Paroxysmal explosive eruptions caused Ngadisari village to collapse and formed a Caldera. Cemoro Lawang wall was formed by large amounts of ignimbrite flows. Paroxysmal explosive eruptions formed the present structure of the outer caldera. Recent volcanic activity occurred at six eruption vents inside the caldera.
