    Depart For Hiking Lawu Volcano From Jogja or Solo

    by olenx Written Jul 8, 2011

    Lawu Volcano is one of old volcanoes of Java, Indonesia. Located at border between two regions of Java Island, East Java and Central Java, Indonesia. The volcanoes has many peaks due to erosion effect, but the highest one is 3265 m .To hike up summit, there are many hiking trails head for the highest summit, but popular ones are hiking trail of CEMORO SEWU, CEMORO KANDANG and CETHO. These hiking trails are accessible 3 hours from Yogyakarta city or 2 hours from Solo by private car (traffic and road conditions effect the drive )

    Starting point of CEMORO SEWU Hiking Trail is located at East Java.The trail is well trodden, not slipper, and considered very suitable for most tourist. Length of trek is approx 7,6 km, angel steepness of the trail is vary from flat to 45 degrees. The trek can be completed in the single day for 8 hours of hike ( Ascent and descent), but for those like to hike and camping to experiences more nature environment, then I recommend to have camp in tent below altitude 3050 m. Here available camp site with sufficient space for setting up tent. Weak up early morning and catch sunrise slowly lights earth and experienced fantastic mountainous views of east Java from in front of your tent, while below your is the lake of Sarangan.

    For those want to discover nature phenomenon of old volcano, then hiking trail of CEMORO KANDANG is the most suitable one. Here you'll discover crater of Lawu as well as hotspring on altitude approx 2600 m.

    For those want to experience of hiking through Savana, mountainous tropical rain forest and discover the most erotic temple (Locally called Cetho Temple) of Java on the slope of Lawu volcano, then hiking trail of CETHO is the most suitable one. The recommendation is hike up from starting point of CEMORO SEWU, have camp in tent below 3050 m, and on the next days heads for Summit. Descend from summit through hiking trail of Cetho that will finish at Cetho Temple, and you have time to visit this most erotic temple at the end of the trek

    Equipment: You should bring your hiking shoes, warm jacket,headlamp,waterproof jacket and long path in case of rain,changes of clothes. To hike in multiple days, bring tent, mat and sleeping bag in case you go without any organized hiking trip.
