We only went by car till the entrance gate, then riding the ojek ( motorcycle ). The driver was very good, he used to ride the bike with heavy, hard street ! There were a certain part that the machine lost the power, they said that was earth magnetic effect. You have to walk down to the sulfur lake. Enjoy... More

Although seeing where the lava poured down the volcanoe in the February erruption the cost of getting to the carpark was not worth it and a total rip off, 200000pp, as you cannot walk to the crater as it is closed. They do not tell you its closed before you go. The roads are good and doable by motorbike even... More

Fantastic to see the volcano and the aftermath of the eruptions clearly visible. Other posts say that the road was closed a few weeks ago but it's now open again. Fee for entry is 25000Rp per person. There's a car park and then a walk up a tarmaced road about 2km, a steep but easy walk. If you're feeling lazy... More

The road leading up to the crater is closed. But noone will tell you this until you've got to the car park halfway up. We were told that if they told tourists the volcano was closed tourists wouldn't come. You don't see much on your way up apart from pineapple plantations and some eruption damage. Apparently Bromo is more beautiful... More

Touring Eastern Indonesia most people go to the more famous Mount Bromo, the Kelud Volcano hardly get's a mention and not many non-Indoesia visitors who are missing out! You can drive there from Kediri in about 90 minutes, some of the views as you drive to Mount Kelud are spectacular. Once at the top you approach a large car park... More

Mt Kelud near the city of Kediri is a nice opportunity to enjoy nature and having a walk in the crowded island of Java. The area provides good insights into vulcanic activities. Especially since an eruption kicked up a black hill inside the caldera of Mt Kelud. I once tried to walk completeley around the crater rim, but failed, as... More

Mt Kelud can be reached by car from Kediri city of East Java for about 1,5hrs. Good view is welcoming us along the way up. When we get there, it's just amazing. An ex craters now turn into a lava dome that we can approach it after passing a tunnel. If you like hiking, climb a steep steps for a... More
