The Beauty of Fire Mountain

Hi there!! How are you?? Hope you are doin fine πŸ˜ƒ

In this time, I’m going to tell you about one of amazing place in Indonesia!! It is Mount Merapi! Yeayyyy! I choose this place because I ever visited this place when I was in junior high school and it was a memorable time for me. So, I wanna share it to you 😊

Mount Merapi
Mount Merapi is one of mountains  in Indonesia.  The name came from the Javanese  words;  Meru  means "mountain" and api means "fire". So, it could be translated as 'Mountain of Fire'. 

Mount Merapi is an active stratovolcano 
that located between Central Java and
YogyakartaIndonesia It is located approximately 28 kilometres north of Yogyakarta city.

It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548. The latest erruption of Mount Merapi were in 2010. The eruption  produced many harmful substances and volcanic ash, caused many casualties and damage, and the other disadvantage.

There are two peaks of Mount Merapi. The first peak is before the actual crater summit of the volcano.  This is where people will normally camp if they are hiking to the top of Merapi. The second peak is the crater peak. This is where the people usually climb for watching the sun rise.

the peaks

We can explore the mount with a jeep, or we can call the tour as ''offroad''. But, the jeep can't take us to the peak (we need to climb). I ever did offroad and it was so fun! Even there will be a lil bit dusty and we have to use a mask on the way to the top, It's equal with the memorable experience. 

This is Dhea, one of my best friends in jhs, with the jeep we used
offroad!! ^^

When we are doing the tour with a jeep, we can visit the museum. There, we can see a replica of Merapi's Eruption in 2010.  There are some pictures of the erruption and some stuff that affected by volcanic ash like spoon, plate, glass, bones, motorcycle, clock, etc. When I visited this museum, I shudder, imagine I was there when the eruption happened.

This is some of the things in the museum 

The other  activity you can do in Mount Merapi is watching the sun rise from the top of the mount. Unfortunately, when I visited Mount Merapi, I didn't see the sunrise .. but I hope i can see it next time bc it would be very amazing :))

Maybe, climbing to the peak mount is the most exhausting, tired, and dusty part. But, the view from the top is 100% worth it. From the top you will see Mount Merbabu to the north and Slamet, Sumbing, and Sindoro mountains to the west. I think it’s really a special thing and I recommend to you who will visit Yogyakarta  for trying to climbing this mount because it’s so fun! :))

I hope I can see the sunrise with my family and my bestfriend someday .. and hopefully you -whoever you are-  can visited this amazing place too ... Aamiin :))
