6-10 Aug 2015 – Mt Semeru 3D2N Trek [Completed]

Date: 6-10 Aug 2015

Group Size: 6 – 8 pax

Status: Completed

Mount Semeru, also referred to as Mahameru (“Great Mountain”), is the highest mountain in Java and one of the highest in Indonesia. It lies in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, in the province of East Java. Semeru is one of Indonesia’s most active and challenging to climb volcanoes. Every 20 minutes or so, the volcano spews out a huge cloud of smoke, sometimes interspersed with ash and stones. The scenery along the way is mesmerizing (the fuming volcano, the edelweiss fields, the turquoise blue water lake), and the views from the top are spectacular.
