Mount Semeru Volcano, Malang

4.8
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.
