6D5N Merapi Merbabu Lawu Trekking Adventure

Merapi Merbabu Lawu Trekking. During this 6 days trekking tour, we bring a visit to 3 different mountains. The first two days we focus on the Merapi, the next 2 days on Merbabu and the last two days on Lawu.

On day one we start climbing the Merapi after administration in the base camp. We will climb in the evening from the north side of the mountain, as this is the easiest and safest route. On the way up, you will pass tobacco plantations and before the last base camp, you will enter a lush forest, which is a habitat for the starling bird. We arrive at the top of the Merapi in around 5 hours (depending on conditions). Here you can enjoy a beautiful sunrise with view on the Lawu mountain in the east, the beautiful Merbabu mountain in the northwest and the twin mountains known as Sindoro mountain and Sumbing mountain in the west.

On the top at the crater you can smell the sulphur. At the south side of the craters rim, you can see a big crack which appeared during the last eruption. The Merapi have spit out a huge amount of lava from this side of the crater. You can still see this big path of devastation which was left behind, till many kilometers inland. Walking around the Merapi gives a unique feeling as it is an impressive volcano to see. This makes climbing the Merapi an experience you will never forget. After enjoying the sunrise we will go back to the base camp.

Trekking Mount Merapi Merbabu Lawu

On day three we start with exploring Merbabu Mountain. This mountain is less steep then the Merapi but with its total track length of 6.2 km and an elevation gain of 1200 meter, still impressive to hike. Merbabu is surrounded by green spacious savannas and beautiful hills. This makes the Merbabu defenatly worth to climb, which more and more people start to realize as well. After a day hike, we build up our own camp where we can take some rest before we start in the evening for another sunrise climb. After arrival on the top, you will see again the Merapi volcano, Lawu, Sindoro, Sumbing mountain, but also Ungaran mountain and several small mountains such as Andong, Telomoyo and Gilipetung mountain. This mountain is relatively easy to climb. After Merbabu we transfer to the highlands of Lawu mountain. Here we will stay overnight in a hotel to have some rest. The next morning we will start climbing Lawu mountain from Cetho side. Before sunset we set up our camp. The next day after Sunrise we go down by Sweu. Back to Yogyakarta.
