I’ve been wanting to climb Merapi for a long time, and it definitely lived up to (and exceeded) all of my expectations. Yabbiekayu were amazing, and made sure everything ran seamlessly!
The hike was a lot harder than expected, and the last km down the mountain really worked those knees to the limit. But well worth the pain!!! What a majestic view, and such a great feeling of accomplishment once you reach the top.
Very highly recommended, but make sure you go prepared!
