Amazing experience, would totally recommend the volcano hike. You start at 2 and eat breakfast before the hike and on top of the volcano. Sadly there are so many people, that you have to wait a lot and can only hike up slowly. But the...More

The climb up is as arduous as you trying to resist your favourite KFC fried chicken wing. Once you resist the first wing, you are on your way to resisting the whole bucket of fried chicken. THE ONLY WAY IS UP. Guides are all friendly...More

I joined group tour (15 people)for cost 350k rupiah/person. It is cheap and had poor quality service. The guide didn't speak English at all, not one word. He didn't need it though, he just walked and we followed. When you get to the top we...More

A must visit place. Sunrise from the top is beautiful and very peaceful. Just a light sweatshirt is enough. Trekking is not very difficult but can get little tiring for beginner's but the view from the top is worth.

This is not too strenuous a trek but one has to be relatively fit. Also need to be comfortable to walk in the dark as the trek starts before dawn. The view is awesome.

I would not recommend it either for kids or elderly people. You need to be able to climb a bit on the way up and jump down few times on the way down. In my opinion this trek is semi difficult and requires moderate activity... More
