Merapi Volcano, Yogyakarta

(4.1/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Trek up Merapi Volcano, 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). Arrange your visit to Merapi Volcano and discover more family-friendly attractions in Yogyakarta using our Yogyakarta family vacation planner.
