EJ - 12

Do you have a craving for challenge? Are you longing for real adventure? This package is for you then. We are excited to take you to conquer Mt. Semeru, the highest peak of Java island. Looming at the altitude of 3676 meters asl, this active volcano offers endless nature beauty all the way up. The journey will be started at remote mountain village named Ranu Pani. It has beautiful lake that will absolutely make you more excited to soon ascend the mountain. You will then walk through narrow path in the middle of lush jungle for four hours. It’s tiring, yes, but as you reach Ranu Kumbolo, you know it is worth the hard work. Ranu Kumbolo is a mountain lake nestling among grassy valley which becomes the most famous spot here on Mt. Semeru.


From here, the view will be more spectacular. You’ll finally arrive at huge savanna which is overgrown with edelweiss and beautiful purple flowers. Walking through this garden, you will then find lava flow from the latest eruption. The mountain top is so obvious from here as well as the barren steep path to the summit. No trees there, only slippery sandy trail with dozens of gravels and huge stones that are easily to fall off. But once you pass through the deadly trail, amazing sunrise moment is yours to enjoy. And on the last day of the journey, we’ll set a tent just at the bank of lake Ranu Kumbolo to more appreciate the pristine mountain nature and sunrise over the lake. It sounds cool, right?


Mt. Semeru is located in Malang area and this adventure is just a perfect choice for those living in the city or in the neighboring Batu and Probolinggo cities. Please find the complete itinerary in the following detail:
