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.

Nice cool place.It is the most active volcano in Indonesia. You can hire a jeep for lava tour. We went upto the base and clicked some photographs. Nice clean environment. You can hire a vehicle from Jogja to see mount Merapi.

I visited this place with my bussiness pathner from India. She enjoy the adventure with jeep and the beautiful mountain. She can feel how taft people survive in that place. Volcano can be a disaster but also the important things we learn how God test our faith. Great appreciate for people can survive after the disaster....

Went for a 2.5hrs jeep ride for 550k idr. Couldn't see much of merapi as it was covered by clouds. Went to bunker which was quite interesting to hear the backstory of it. Went to a few scenic sites and a museum thereafter. The alien rock formation was just meh. Nothing much about it and too many people. The river ride at the end was the highlight. The jeep driver drove around a small section of a river and it was exhilarating.

It is nice to see the vulcano still smoking, but really not interesting to go for a rock, not the best place here to see
