there were many basecamps providing jeep touring the price about 350K for a short trip. they will show you the place where they experiencing the eruption. the way to getting also awakening. people here are nice and simple. unluckily we couldnt see the peak of merapi due to fog. overall its a place that worth to visit in Yogjakarta.

We opted for the Mt Merapi lava jeep tour as we didn't have enough days in Jogja to hike. The breathtaking views of the majestic Mt Merapi was definitely worth the trip! Bring a light outerwear if you're going for sunrise as the temperature could dip below 18deg c even during summer.

Awesome jeep ride
A jeep cost about 350k to 450k Rupiah, so if you go with more people, more worth it
The road up is soooo bumpy, and dusty
But a very good experience

The view is also magnificent.

I have traked Merapi and it is amazing!

The way up is very hard and I have done it during the night to see the sunrise from the top.

I advise you to check if you are really ready to do the treking because its arround 4 hours of really hard path up and 3 down... but it worth every minute.

Choose a guided tour and you will have the support of the guides and meet other people on your way up!

After paying aprox 10€ aprox per person, you find poor infrastructure and conservation (paths closed, missing steps in staircase in viewpoint, litter). Only sign in English is to say that foreigners pay more, after that, all signs in Indonesian haha
