Telomoyo volcano, also spelled Telemojo, was constructed over the southern flank of the eroded Pleistocene Soropati volcano and is in part of Holocene age (van Bemmelen 1941). It lies along a NNW-SSE-trending line of volcanoes extending from Ungaran in the north to Merapi in the south. The eastern flank of Soropati volcano collapsed during the Pleistocene, leaving a U-shaped depression. Telomoyo subsequently filled much of the southern side of this depression and grew to a height of 600 m above its rim.
