Getang crater, also known as Kinyach, is on the N side of the Korosi summit area. The walls of the 600-m-wide, 120-m-deep crater expose trachytic lava flows. The youngest activity at Korosi, consisting of fissure-fed basaltic lava flows on the lower northern flanks, may have occurred only a few hundred to a few thousand years ago.
