Merapi Volcano, Yogyakarta
(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • With a jeep on the rugged mountain slope of Merapi is an experience. You visit a museum where the effects of the eruptions of the 2004 and 2006 very informative. It is clear to see the devastation. After bouncing up to the bunker to finish. Unfortunately, it is not resistant to the extremely high temperatures and there are also people lost their lives. Not suitable for people with a weak back.
