before the eruption of Mount Merapi. Source: wordpress.com
There are at least three good tracks for climbing the Merapi. They are:
* The Babadan track on the western side
* The Selo track on the northern side.
If we want to enjoy sunrise from the peak, it is recommended we start our scent at about 1 a.m. People using the Selo track for this can spend the night before at lalangan village or Blumbangsari village, where residents rent their rooms and can provide guides for the climbers.
