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 surrounded by shops which is not easy on the eye. Once you disembark there is a short walk to the caldera which is steaming and growing at a terrific rate every year. To obtain a better view you can climb approx 250 steep steps - we climbed half way and decided it was enough, the view were great from there. If you have the time the Kelud volcano is really worth seeing.

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 there are extremely steep steps that cannot be climed up and down, due to loose stones and vegatation. However, Mt Kelud offers good climbing opportunites for professionals. The track is at the wall to the right, when you enter the caldera.

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 better view from the top. I think it's 100-200 meters up. Before entering the tunnel, there is a steps down to the natural hot spring. Took a long way down and up again, but the environment make me easily to forget hustle. However, this might not suitable for elderly people.

Around the parking area I love to taste the traditional canapes of Mendoan whis freshly cook from the pan. May - September is the best time to visit I think. It's dry season and more chances to enjoy the great view.

It is a beautiful ride to this volcano. It is a short walk from the parking area over a road to the tunnel. On the other side of the tunnel you can see the hill of steaming lava. A path down brings you closer to the lava but not to the edge of it. The path to the edge is closed.
The best view is higher up. There goes a steep stairway up. Halfway to the top you can see the small crater lake.
Admission 10000rp pp plus 2000rp for the car.
The ride from Kediri to the volcano did take a little more than one hour. Gps -7.939794, 112.29913
The ride from this volcano via Batu to Cemoro Lawang (Bromo) did take over 8 hours including time for lunch and short photo stops.

We park our car in the last sign parking. After its up to you, you can just walk until the top of volcano or take ojek (motor cycle ride). It's very beautiful panoramic view, but when we visit the other day still can see the effect of the eruption so not greenish and the road are not in good condition. And some tracking part are still close. But still can See the beautifulness of the souronding. We meet governor people's take a look the condition of the road, they said gonna make new road so the visitor are save. Overall we enjoying our trip.

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 you can get a ride on the back of one of the many ojek up to the top for a small price. You do not actually get up to the crater itself (or craters as there are probably several after all the eruptions), which is slightly disappointing, but you get a good view of the outer sides and the lava flows down the hillside.

Lonely Planet talks about a 200m long tunnel to get to the crater, but the book was published before the eruption of February 2014 and presumably the tunnel destroyed as we didn't see any sign of it when we were up there.

Overall verdict: Not as outstanding as Ijen but well worth the trip.

When I went here, and paid the entrance ticket, there was not enough information about access to Mount Kelud. It turns out, after parking and walking far enough, can only reach the guardrail, because it seems there is still construction around the peak of Mount Kelud. We hope that the relevant parties can provide clear and transparent information, so that visitors are not disappointed not to be able to enter the Kelud Mountain area.

Mount Kelud Kediri East Java. There are two different cities we can take to get to the mountain. It can start either from Kediri or Blitar. It's about one hour drive either way. There is plantations a long the way where plants grow very well. They are cloves and pineapples the most catching the eyes among others. I found the pineapples are juicy and taste so good. My suggestion is to have some since there are available to buy at the parking lot ready to eat. It's about five kilometres from the last point (parking lot ) to reach the top of the mountain. It's great hike with beautiful views. There are jeeps and motorcycle as transportation as well. Enjoy the breeze of the pure mountain air! It's the best and easy place to explore!
