2D1N Mount Merbabu Trek (30 Sept – 1 Oct 2017)

30th September 2017 - 1st October 2017

Mount Merbabu strategically located in the center of Java Island is a hidden gem of Indonesia’s mountains. Though not as well cited as its neighbours – Mount Semeru (highest volcano in Indonesia) and Merapi (most active volcano in Indonesia) – it offers a more pleasant climb and equally scenic view. From its summit, one can enjoy a 360 degrees unblocked view of Central Java mountain landscape; Gunung Sumbing (3371m), Gunung Sindoro (3136m) and the Dieng Plateau to the west, Gunung Telemoyo (1894m) and Gunung Ungaran (2050m) to the north, Gunung Lawu (3118m) to the east and menacing Gunung Merapi (2930m) in the south. It has five volcanic calderas, Condrodimuko, Kombang, Kendang, Rebab and Sambernyowo but no major activities has been reported in past decades. For this trek, you will be taking the western route up and the southern route down the mountain with an overnight stay in tent which will allow you to see enjoy the scenery from various vantage points. Look out for the beautiful ubiquitous Javanese edelweiss (aka the Everlasting Flower) which is endemic to the mountains of Indonesia.
