Mount Seulawah Agam is formed by a meeting of the Indo-Australian Plate moving relative to the north, placing it under the Eurasian Eurasian Skeleton Plate. As a result, the melting process of the Indo-Autral Ocean crust becomes magma, which then breaks through the weak zone and then forms the Seulawah Agam Mountain.Seulawah Agam crater is known as Heutsz Crater and there is also a crater called Tanah Simpago.
