Mount Merbabu is a dream among climbers located in Magelang, Boyolali, Salatiga and Semarang regencies adjacent to Mount Merapi. A difficult path, bone-chilling cold, and some things that must be considered when hiking.

Fog, cold air, dense forest, and the difficulty of water become an obstacle during the ascent of Merbabu, Central Java. But, if you manage to conquer the peak, its charm and natural beauty can be a valuable gift for you to get.

Mount merbabu is a dormant stratovolcano in Central Java province on the Indonesian island of Java. The name Merbabu could be loosely translated as 'Mountain of Ash' from the Javanese combined words; Meru means "mountain" and awu or abu means "ash". And erupted in 1560 and 1797.
