Trekking Trips


Today trekking trips are mostly based around volcanoes of Yogyakarta and Central Java, ranging from just half day to multidays. Below some trekking trips based on our recent experiences:

_____________________________________________________

1) SINDORO

SUNDORO also locally named SINDORO, the twin volcano of Sumbing.Recently (2012) it's magmatic activity rise to higher level without eruption, experienced forest fire, and therefore it had been closed for hiking activity by local authority on year of 2012, till today we never check it out.

Sindoro normally has temporal crater lake on wet season caused rainfall accumulated in the carter.Provides good sunrise, and great opportunity of exploring it's carter rim uniqueness where the grass plus some adapted plants are still growing. Hiking trip to Sundoro normally takes 2 days / 1 night, overnight by camp in tent, departure from Yogyakarta  in the morning. Return to Yogyakarta in late afternoon on next day.Hiking route: Kledung.Transfer round trip 4 -5 hours. Actual hike approx 10 ascent - descent.

2) MERAPI

This is the most active volcano of Indonesia. Provides sensational view of new crater which is well visible from crater's rim.Most trips took 2 Days / 1 night overnight in tent, other trip departs at night by car from Yogyakarta to the northern base of Merapi took 1 Night and 1 Day. If you never hike volcano before, 2 Days hike is better for more time to adapt to rising volcanic environment as well as for more enjoyment and experiences, you have rare opportunity to experience sunset on first day and sunrise on second day.Transfer round trips 4 hours.
