Address: The volcanic peak near the center of Java Island, Indonesia, is about 32 kilometers north of Yogyakarta, a little further south of Sanbaolong.

What travelers say:

Merrapi, the most active volcano in Java, is about 26 kilometers north of Yogyakarta. Its eruption is surprisingly regular. The 1006 eruption destroyed a kingdom in Central Jaw and buried the Bharafutu Buddha Tower, one of the seven wonders of the world; In a November 1994 eruption, 69 people were killed, and in January 2001, a massive surge of lava and thousands of earthquakes alerted the Indonesian Volcano Survey to the volcano's condition. So be sure to ask for advice before climbing the mountain. It'll be cold to go up the mountain to watch the sunrise in the morning. Remember to wear thick clothes.

Additional Information


The Mount Merapi is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The crater emits smog all year round, as if it is ready for eruption any moment. In the past century, the volcano erupted more than a dozen times bringing lots of disasters to Yogyakarta, Borobudur and Prambanan. However, these frequent volcanic eruptions did not prevent people from leading a normal life in the mountains. There are still hundreds of towns around the volcano with Kaliulang being one such example. Some hotels in that town organize tours to visit the volcano.
