Explore Mount Merapi in a 4WD jeep and trace the course of the most recent volcanic eruption. After breakfast your driver and tour guide will pick you up and drive you to the Merapi Volcano Museum to learn more about Indonesia s most active volcano. From there drive to the basecamp and climb into the back of an American jeep for the start of your volcanic jeep adventure. The jeep will take you up the steep bumpy slopes of the mountain over the volcanic ash and past piles of gravel and charred rocks. Drive through the area of the most recent eruption in 2010 to see the lava flows and the trails of destruction. Jump out of the jeep and take a walk around to snap photos of this otherworldly place that was totally destroyed by the erupting volcano. After lunch in a local restaurant you will be taken back to your hotel.
