Mount Semeru Volcano, Malang

4.7
Take the challenging trek the steep and still active Mount Semeru Volcano. With a peak at 3,676 m (12,060 ft) and in a constant state of activity since 1967 (small eruptions happen every 20 minutes or so), climbing the mountain is a truly exhilarating--albeit occasionally dangerous--experience. Nonetheless, it remains popular with climbers from around the world, and you'll find groups of people rearing to tackle the slopes in the village of Ranu Pane. Be ready for a tough climb as the volcanic sand is slippery and the mountain slopes very steep.

  • Unbeatable experience. Volcano is stunning, frequent small eruptions at top. Plenty of campsites, although usually busy. Locals are friendly. Rani Kumbolo lake is clean and a nice site to stop at.
  • The highest volcano peak in java island. I've been here 4 times. Trust me, the scenery is beautiful, but when you climb the peak, it will take about 4-5 hours from the last camp, if you want to climb the peak you gotta go in 12am then 8am is the time limit you can stay on the peak. At that time all climber from the peak need to go down, cause the volcano erupting in that time. After the end of the forest, the road is sandy, almost 90°, hard to step your feet, sometimes rock feel out from the uncareful hiker from your top, you need to focus when climbing here
