Breathtaking Sunrise Walk at Mount Merapi

Breathtaking Sunrise Walk at Mount Merapi - 

Get ready for a thrilling adventure with Kelana DMC’s unique sunrise walk held on Mount Merapi. This carefully curated experience allows you to enjoy the magnificent beauty and stunning sights from one of Indonesia’s most recognisable active volcanoes.

Discovering the Magic of Mount Merapi at Sunrise

Start your day off early, before sunrise, by journeying to Mount Merapi from your accommodation. As you reach the bottom of the volcano there is much anticipation as this promises to be an extraordinary experience. Equipped with headlamps, our expert guides will take you through the first steps up in the dark.

The Climb

The climb to Mount Merapi peak is moderately challenging and can be attempted by anyone who has reasonable fitness levels. The trail passes through lush forests and rocky paths all lit up by your torches. On your way up there are occasional views of lava flows and surrounding landscapes that give you a taste of what it feels like hiking over an active volcano mountain.

Reaching the Summit

As you get closer to the summit, it begins getting brighter outside exposing contours of a fascinatingly attractive landscape underneath. We'll reach  the summit just in time for sun rise; there awaits a sight that will leave you breathless: rays from heaven breaking over an abyss throwing golden light on slopes created from volcanic materials as well as valleys encircling it all round. The panoramic views from the summit are truly breathtaking, offering a unique perspective of Indonesia's natural beauty.

Immersive Experience

Take some time at the summit to savour its amazing views and serene atmosphere. Our knowledgeable guides will share fascinating insights into the geology and history of Mount Merapi, including stories of past eruptions and local legends. You will have enough time both to take photos and to enjoy the experience before descending.

The Descent

The way down is a different but beautiful view of Mount Merapi. As you go back, you will tread the same diverse landscapes; only this time they are bathed in morning light. On your return, there is a chance to reflect on what has just happened and admire the beauty that lies in front of you.

Post-Trek Relaxation

After the trek, enjoy a well-deserved breakfast at a nearby local eatery, where you can taste traditional Indonesian dishes and recharge. It’s also a good time to exchange stories with you and your group about the hike and its highlights.
