Mount Merapi is Indonesia’s most active volcano. Its 2010 eruption with bursts of lava, ashes and numerous pyroclastic currents moving down the heavily populated slopes caused devastation to land and people. Today, trees began to grow again, but the land is still largely unpopulated.

The 2-hour jeep tour takes you over cold lava fields and rocky slopes, up to a villager’s house that has become a museum of a household destroyed by the volcano.

The height of the Jeeps may make it challenging for some guests to enter the vehicle. We provide a platform with ramp to get on the same level with the Jeep seat. The tour itself is partly bumpy but never steep or risky. At the museum steps can be bridged with portable ramps.
