MerapiMerapi Lava. Merapi dominates the landscape immediately north of the city of Yogyakarta in one of the world’s most densely populated areas. Merapi is the youngest and southernmost of a volcanic chain extending NNW to Ungaran volcano. The steep-sided modern Merapi edifice, its upper part unvegetated due to frequent eruptive activity, was constructed to the SW of an arcuate scarp cutting the eroded older Batulawang volcano. Pyroclastic flows and lahars accompanying growth and collapse of the steep-sided active summit lava dome have devastated cultivated lands on the volcano’s western-to-southern flanks and caused many fatalities during historical time. Since 1953, activity has been characterized by extrusion of lava into the summit crater, with periodic lava dome collapse and nuée ardente formation. Summit lava dome growth has continued since the 1969 gas explosion. It is monitored from the Merapi Volcano Observatory (MVO) in Yogyakarta.

  1. Hello,

    We are a Belgian family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 7) and we will be visiting Java in August. We will also be staying in Yogyakarta, where we would be interested in a tour combining a visit to Borobudur with a jeep tour around Merapi. We noticed on your website that you combine this with a visit to Prambanan too, but for us this is too much of a program one 1 day. Hence, we would only see Borobudur and Merapi.

    Would you be able to organize this for us, August 23rd?
    If so, which would be the price, rent of the jeep and lunch included?
    How far is it to drive from Borobudur to the starting point of the Merapi jeep tour? How long is the jeep tour?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Kind regards,

  3. Dear Alaska tour,

    Me and my cousin would like to visit Borobudur, Prambanan and Merapi this week. We found your agency by searching through Google. We are however a little confused about what exactly the total price is for the tour. Do we need to pay 150.000 rp on top of the 450.000 rp? What is exactly meant by price all in?

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,

    Marloes and Rosan
