The best time to experience Mt. Merapi, Indonesia’s most active volcano, is at sunset, when molten lava can be seen shooting into the darkness. In a 4x4 vehicle, this tour takes you through local villages, rice paddies, and lava-carved rivers to an observation deck, perfectly positioned for viewing the sunset. Watch as Mt. Merpai is bathed in ethereal light and learn about the volcano’s behaviour from a volcanologist. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Borobudur is included.

Departure Time

3:00 PM
Begin your tour with afternoon hotel pickup, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for Mt. Merapi — the most active volcano in Indonesia. In your 4x4, you’ll traverse rugged terrains and admire typical Java scenery such as rice paddies, tropical plantations, and indigenous villages.

After hurtling through a river carved by ancient lava flows, you’ll arrive at an observation office to learn about techniques used to measure the volcano’s activity. Interact with the resident volcanologist and then settle down to enjoy the sunset.

From your ideal vantage point, watch as the 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) volcano is bathed in a spectrum of color. Once darkness has fallen, see bursts of molten lava illuminate the night sky.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Borobudur hotel.
