Mount Semeru Volcano, Malang

Volcano Nature / Park
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.

  • The rise in July 2017. Ascension is a unique experience. But very hard to achieve. There are a (very) good physical condition. The part to the Lake, then to the camp of the Kalimati is fairly easy to accomplish. Attention, in case of rain that quickly becomes tedious because of the mud. The last part that corresponds to the rise of the crater is extremely hard. This is to climb a steep hill without detour, online right and on volcanic rock (big gravel). We should not underestimate the difficulty. Along the way we meet Indonesian youth groups that make the climb at their own pace (on most days) as a kind of pilgrimage in a very friendly atmosphere.
