Trip Highlights:

During this 4 days trekking tour, we bring a visit to both mountains. The first two days we focus on the Merapi and the last two days on the Merbabu. 

Walking around the Merapi gives a unique feeling as it is an impressive volcano to see. This makes climbing the Merapi an experience you will never forget. Mount Merbabu is relatively easy to clime. After arrival on the top, you will see again the Merapi volcano, Lawu, Sindoro, Sumbing mountain, but also Ungaran mountain and several small mountains such as Andong, Telomoyo and Gilipetung mountain.

With that being said, we recommend customers not to be too bothered by it because you are only here for a few days , it is no guarantee that even if you come in the dry season, it won’t rain or it will always be rainy during the monsoon season. We believe alot is down to luck. December/August are still the peak period of tourist in Indonesia.
