This two and a half day trip takes you to the top of Merbabu Mountain.
Day 1: In the evening we drive to Thekelan (2 to 3 hours), the Merbabu basecamp. Here we spend the first night so we can start climbing early morning.
Day 2: We get up at 6, have breakfast and prepare for the 8 hour trek up to the second highest peak of Merbabu. We go through different landscapes, from a sulphur field, to forest and little bushes. But the real beauty waits for us at the top: a 3600 view over the 'ring of fire', including Mt Merapi, Mt Telemoyo, Mt Lawu, Mt Sumbing, Mt Unggaran, and more. We camp in tents.
Day 3: We watch sunrise before breakfast. After packing up we climb the highest peak of Merbabu (about 45 min). From here we start the descent down steep paths through savanna and forest. It takes us about 7 hours to reach the basecamp in Selo.
