During the phase of the destruction of the volcano Mount Rinjani has formed a caldera that is mostly filled with water and formed a lake called Lake Segara Anak (± 2,010 m asl) which has a depth of ± 230 meters, crescent-shaped with an area of ​​about 1,100 Ha. As a result of volcanic tectonics that continue in the middle of the caldera a new cone of volcanoes emerges called Gunung Baru Jari (± 2,376 m asl).

The history of the Mount Rinjani eruption began from 1847 to 2004, nine eruptions that ranged inside the caldera, while the crater of Mount Rinjani itself had never been recorded an eruption.
