Puncak Merapi, Yogyakarta Region

Trek up Puncak Merapi, an active volcano of grand proportions. Not for the faint-hearted or inexperienced, the walk up represents a challenge for even the most seasoned of hikers but, once at the top, the extensive views of the surrounding volcanic landscape make up for the energy expenditure. Book a guide to learn about the myths and history surrounding the volcano (and a well-timed pep talk when the hiking gets tough). Put Puncak Merapi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Yogyakarta Region trip planner .

  • The volcano is about 17 kilometers from yogyakarta, and the road is a little small and unfast. Into the mountains to collect tickets 18,000 rupees / person, go to the designated location and then rent a jeep up the mountain, car rental time to play, long-term short-term, starting price is 350,000 rupees / car, a car can ride about four or five people, you can also rent a motorcycle to drive up.
