Trekking Mount Merapi

Mt. Merapi (literally means “fire”) is the most active volcano in Indonesia with its regular eruption. In 2010, the spiritual guardian of Merapi volcano – Mbah Marijan – were killed at his
home by the eruption. Standing 2.930 m a.s.l, Merapi is considered as a sacred mountain by Jogjakarta people. A night trekking to its peak will be rewarded by a magnificent panorama at time of sunrise of its neighbor Merbabu volcano and surrounding.
