Merapi (2968 m)is Indonesian most active volcano located in Yogyakarta Special Region and Central Java Region.Last huge explosive eruption was recorded on 2010 which changed it's eruption type.This last eruption collapsed the popular Garuda Peak zone, and created new large crater plus new peak.Also made peak zone more sandy and more loose rock available.
There are some trails (routes) from each flanks ( West via Babadan - North via Selo - East via Deles - South via Kinahredjo. I suggest you to climb it via Selo on northern flank since it more safe. The climb is non technical, it requires only to walk upward, cross some boulders, and little scrambling on some sections of the trail.You walk through local farmland, tropical mountain forest, sub alp ecosystem, and sandy trail - fumarol field plus loose rock zone up summits. Along the trail, you have the chance to take in view of surrounding volcanoes such as Sumbing,Sundoro and Merbabu, also see the unique landscape of this most active volcano. On Summit zone, you can see (depend on weather) sensation view of the crater below,surrounding towering volcanic rock formation and closed up view of old volcano Merbabu.Actual climb 7 hours ascent - descent.Actual Transfer Yogyakarta City - Basecamp of Selo 4 hours roundtrips.Best Period / Time Of Climbing : Dry Season,and during the magmatic activity of Merapi on Level I ( Normal Active Level ), check out magmatic activity level before climbing it.Making summit is better to be done in the early morning 06:00 am and descent back before the fog come up covers summit zone and disturb your visibility distance.Provide safety helmet in high season is more safe as well as masker in case of high accumulation of sulphuric gas smoke on summit zone. Slower but steady is better than faster with many stops, and making tactical pace move to allow your self to adapt on rising altitude for more enjoyment is the best.Don't forget to wear good hiking shoes suits to rugged and rocky terrains
