Hiking from Yogyakarta

6 Reviews
The city of Yogyakarta offers travelers plenty of opportunity to wander through historic and religious sites, but it also proves an ideal starting place for two of the region’s most memorable outdoor experiences. 

Travelers who want to venture below the surface of the earth can travel to Jomblang Cave, a unique natural wonder that was caused by a geological shift that created a massive sinkhole. The incredible cave stretches some 300 vertical feet below the surface. Visitors can explore the rocky crags and impressive natural light shows this destination is famous for using a well-worn path and a more technical single rope line. The adventure is not for the faint of heart and requires visitors to wear coveralls, boots, a helmet and headlamp on their journey into Jomblang. While vegetation above ground is mostly barren and dotted with hardwood trees, adventurers will find lush green landscapes and fertile fields visible from one of the cave’s most popular vantage points, which makes this trip a truly memorable experience. 

Visitors who prefer to stay above ground will find plenty of hiking at Mt Merapi. Known as the most active volcano in Indonesia, its treacherous peaks, impossible views and steeply graded trails make it a destination for travelers seeking some high-altitude adventure. Those who want to experience Mt Merapi at its finest should plan to begin their trek well before the sun, since locals say the ideal time to reach its peak is 5:30 a.m., when it’s possible to catch the sun rising up above the horizon.
