Did the overnight climb up to the top of Mount Merapi. I say its definitely an experience. The guides are helpful, going at a pace that the group was comfortable with, even taking breaks when we had too.
The view at the top was great - just remember it's actually COLD up there with all the wind, have jacket so you'll be able to enjoy the view without freezing.
Not an easy climb either! I thought to myself many times about calling it quits, but its worth it when (if) you make it to the top. If not, its an adventure in itself.
The mountain, being an important part of sacred javanese symbolism, emphasized by the eerie damage of the eruption, offers a mystical atmosphere yet breathtaking view.
As one of the active volcanoes in Indonesia, Mount Merapi has been active in the northern part of Yogyakarta, where you can experience the magic of the volcano and the remains of the volcanic eruption at the time, and experience the madness of an open-top off-road vehicle. wild. In the movie, the jeep was driving, and the scene of the deep jungle adventure began to emerge.
jumping (climbing) on the off-road vehicle, driving to the mountains, the road up the mountain is not easy to open, at first on the flat oil road, but the more up, the board road will be more. I heard that it used to be an oil road. It was because of the volcanic eruption in 2010 that the current road conditions were formed.
It is halfway up the mountain. It is a memorial hall of volcanic sites. It is a memorial hall. It is just a few houses left behind by volcanic eruptions. There are several pictures of the rescue at that time. It is tragic and desolate, and it is deeply pity. .
The car continues to go up, ready to climb to the top to watch the volcano on the observation deck. The more you go up, the worse the air will be, and the whole sky will be covered with fog. On the top of the mountain, the thick fog will occlude the volcano on the opposite side, and the distance can only see the traces of the volcanic lava flowing down.
Playing the Merapi Volcano, be sure to bring a good mask, the dust in the air is bigger
Mount Merapi is located in the northern part of Yogyakarta, the central and southern SAR of the Indonesian capital Jakarta. It is the youngest of the many volcanoes in South Java and the most active of more than 130 volcanoes in Indonesia. Because of the activity of the Merapi volcano, there are countless travel enthusiasts and explorers visiting the city every year. Every time the
Merapi volcano erupts, it will be accompanied by the debris flow of the fire, randomly generating a large amount of volcanic ash, which seriously affects people's production and life, and even threatens the lives of local people.
There is a ruin under the mountain village. In order to make people feel the subsequent impact of the volcanic eruption, there is still a layer of filthy ash in the ruins of the ruins. It seems to be an old courtyard with nowhere to go. .
Merapi Volcano perfectly interprets the deep meaning of the "Shuhai Sangtian". The first volcanic eruption in 1006 ruined a kingdom of Zhongjiao Island. Borobudur, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was also drowned in the vast land. . Every eruption will cause the fall of life. Now, looking back at the site, I feel that the world is changing, the East China Sea is dusting, and in the face of nature, human beings are powerless.
With the natural landscape formed by volcanic eruptions, Merapi has formed a unique volcanic landscape tourism chain, which has gradually become a new local economic growth point.
The Mount Merapi is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The crater emits smog all year round, as if it is ready for eruption any moment. In the past century, the volcano erupted more than a dozen times bringing lots of disasters to Yogyakarta, Borobudur and Prambanan. However, these frequent volcanic eruptions did not prevent people from leading a normal life in the mountains. There are still hundreds of towns around the volcano with Kaliulang being one such example. Some hotels in that town organize tours to visit the volcano.
