3D2N Mt Sindoro & Mt Sumbing

Separated by the Kledung Pass, the majestic peaks of Mt Sindoro or Gunung Sindoro (3150m) and Mt Sumbing or Gunung Sumbing (3371m) can be bagged over two consecutive night climbs from Kledung Village.  For this itinerary, no camping is necessary and you will be resting in a hotel between the two hikes.

ITINERARY

DAY 01

SINGAPORE – YOGYAKARTA – KLEDUNG VILLAGE

Fly directly from Singapore Changi to Yogyakarta Adisucipto International Airport, you will be picked up by our friendly guide to Kledung Village (approx. 3 to 4 hrs drive). Have an early night rest for sunrise hike tomorrow.

Overnight: Dieng Kledung Pass Hotel or similar

DAY 02

KLEDUNG VILLAGE –  SINDORO SUMMIT – KLEDUNG VILLAGE

You will be given an early morning wake up call at around 1230am (confirm with guide) for Mt Sindoro summit trek.  Hotel will pass you a simple breakfast box which you can carry along and eat during your hike. For most hikers, they will take around 5-6 hours to reach the summit passing by Batu Besar, Pos 1 (1600m), Pos 2 (2120m), Semak Belukar, Pos 3 (2530m) and Batu Tatah (Pos 4, 2843m). On Mt Sindoro summit at 3150m, you will be able to catch magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. The huge conical and very imposing Mt Sumbing will no doubt capture your attention. But take note of Mt Merapi, Mt Merbabu, Mt Ungaran, Mt Slamet and Mt Prau which can be seen in the distance. After some photo taking and rest, trek back to the base and transfer to hotel. This would take around 5-6 hours as well.

Rest and relax at the hotel until your next hike.

Tip: There is a good local restaurant just beside the hotel.

Overnight: Dieng Kledung Pass Hotel or similar

DAY 03

KLEDUNG VILLAGE –  SUMBING SUMMIT – YOGYAKARTA

Again, you will be given an early morning wake up call at around 1230am (confirm with guide) for Mt Sumbing summit trek.  Remember to collect your breakfast box from the hotel before transfer to the start of trek.  For most hikers, they will also take around 5-6 hours to reach the Mt Sumbing summit. Stop points during the hike are Pos 1 (1932m), Pos 2 (2240m), Watu Kotak (2763m) and Tanah Putih (around 3000m).  At the crater rim, most hikers would have considered as having reached the highest point of Mt Sumbing. There may be a few slightly higher points around the crater rim but we consider reaching them as mere technicalities.  The huge conical and very imposing Mt Sindoro to the northwest will no doubt capture your attention. But peer a little further and you will notice Mt Merapi, Mt Merbabu, Mt Ungaran, Mt Slamet and Mt Prau in the distance.

After some photo taking and rest, trek back to the base which will take around 5-6 hours. Our waiting vehicle will transfer your group to Yogyakarta. (approx. 3 to 4 hrs drive).  If you have a late flight, it is possible to fly home on the same day.  However, we suggest spending the night at Yogyakarta for rest and relax.

  • All local land transfers including airport transfers (or hotel if spending extra days at Yogyakarta) during the 3 day 2 night package

HIKING GRADE

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

Climbing Season: During the dry months from May to November

Rainy Season: December to April

Temperature: It can get very cold and it can rain even during the climbing season. Warm clothing and rain gears are necessary.

Difficulty Level: Climbing Mt Sindoro & Mt Sumbing over two consecutive nights is considered very tough. Expect to hike around 9-11 hours each day. Hikers should bring along only essential items (warm clothing, poncho/rain jacket/pants, change of dry clothing for the night, headlight and trekking stick) for the climb.  Hiking sticks are recommended. Normal trekking throughout except for some light scrambling. No rock climbing or technical climbing skills needed. There is a rather exhilarating motorcycle (scrambler) ride from base camp to start of trek (to save hiking time of maybe 1 hour and conserve energy). If hiker is not comfortable with this, it is possible to skip the scrambler ride and just trek all the way from base camp.

OPTIONAL PROGRAM

Instead of 2 consecutive night hikes, it is possible to extend one or more days between the 2 hike to do some sight-seeing and relaxing in the region (near to Dieng Plateau). It is also possible to extend the itinerary to cover more hikes including Mt Prau, Mt Merbabu, Mt Merapi and Mt Lawu.

TESTIMONIALS

The climb was great, the view was amazing. We really enjoyed the fact that it wasn't too touristic and all hikers were local. The guide was very helpful and brought us around in Surabaya on Saturday.

Aijing (Group of 2 on a 4D3N Mt Arjuno & Mt Welirang trip in Apr 2019)

Personalised pickup and attention to our well being. Focused to help us to have good experiences. Guide Udin is very professional. Dependable, attention to details, providing good advices. Porters are friendly and helpful. We are very happy with the service level, professionalism of the whole team to bringing good experiences to hikers like us.

– YT (Group of 3 on a 2D1N Mt Merbabu Camping trip in Nov 2018)

Hi Bob, thanks very much for making the arrangements and making this trip a meaningful one for me. The service that you have provided is exception, really unlike any vendors that I have engaged before. The prompt replies and staying connected with the traveller during the trip helps to reassure the traveller. The guides that were engaged were also very professional and ensures the safety of the climber. The guides takes the effort to brief the climber and checks that there are proper safety equipment before the hike so that safety of the climber will not be compromised. It was a smooth trip. The drivers for the transfers were also punctual. It’s really a great trip! Thank you very much!

– Pei Yi (Solo hiker on a 4D3N Semeru trip in Aug 2018)

The guide and porters were experienced and very nice! They were very helpful and fun 🙂 the cooking was delicious and they were wonderful hosts. We were pretty slow but they were understanding about it. They were very accommodating of our wants to stop and take pictures along the way too. I'd like to commend porter Diu (I hope I'm spelling it right), my Friend was struggling up and he offered to carry her bag for her. During the descend, I kept slipping and he was so kind to help me down the many steep paths.

– Stef (Group of 6 on an 2D1N Mt Merbau Summit & Camping trip in Jul 2018)

We were lucky, the weather was good and sunny throughout the trip. Scenery was beautiful and most importantly food was great. A great trek but not a stroll in the park. Summit push was a struggle for some of us. Thanks Ying for making our trip a success.

– Jace Lee (Group of 4 on a 4D3N Semeru trip in June 2018)

Profession guide ensures a safety and comfortable journey during the adventure. Tents and pillows were of good condition and organisation of daily itinerary was based on our capability and ability to continue the hike rather than rushing for the schedules. The hiking and trip journey was enjoyable.

– Adam (Group of 4 on a Mt Rinjani trip in May 2017)

The whole arrangement from the start to the end was smooth. The support of the guide was immense and we enjoyed ourselves all the way through. But kudos to the guide who made this experience a beautiful one.

– Mus (Group of 4 on a Mt Rinjani trip in May 2017)

It has been a fulfilling trip from the start to the end. Ying has been very meticulous from the beginning; paying great attention to our dietary requirement, rooming arrangement etc. Thanks Abdul, our guide, for the encouraging gestures to keep us going especially during the summit push. Fond memories for years to come!

– Celine (Group of 7 on a Mt Rinjani trip in June 2016)

This was our third trekking trip with IWT after Rinjani and Ophir. We continued to be impressed with their consistent personalized customer service and responsiveness. The pre-trip briefing package which consisted of a detailed packing list and things to take note of are especially useful for our climb preparation.Thanks Bob for keeping a constant check on us during the trip. We look forward to many more trips with you.

– HL Chua (Group of 5 on a 5D4N Semeru trip in May 2016)

Thanks to our guide Arief for making my life so much bearable during the 3d2n trek. It was a tough trek especially for someone like me who's not so fit but the scenery was really worth the sweat. Looking back it's a trip well planned and executed. Thanks for making this happen.

– Jiahui (Group of 5 on a Mt Rinjani trip in May 2016)

We had a great trip and received very good services from the mountain guide and his helpers. We greatly appreciate the  thoughtfulness with which iwannatravel planned the itinerary especially when we need to make last minute change to reduce the group size. Our trip is all well planned and executed. We greatly enjoyed ourselves throughout the trip.

– Susana Chua (Group of 3 on a 5D4N Semeru trip in Sept 2015)

Kudos to IWT for making our Semeru trip a success; everything from driver, guide to accommodation were well planned and organised! The Semeru FAQ and packing list provided by Bob were especially useful in helping us to prepare for this trip. Bob was always very prompt and patient towards our enqueries and requests for itinerary amendment. We look forward to our next trip with IWT! 

– Jeremy (Group of 6 on a 5D4N Semeru trip in Aug 2015))

We are very happy with the overall arrangement of everything from the choice of trekking company, the transportation and the accommodations. We were very well taken care of on the trek. The foods on our camping trip was really great. Beyond our expectation actually. =) Thanks you Bob for the patience to answer to all our queries and giving us advises that helps us greatly to planned out our extension stay after the climb. Will definitely join their other climbs or engage them to plan another trip again. =)
