Semeru is the highest volcano in Java island. The entrance gate is Ranupani village (2200 M) or about 3 hrs jeep driving from Tumpang Malang city.

The trek starting from Ranupani is relatively flat to reach Ranukumbolo lake campsite (2400 M). It can be done by 4 hrs trek with easy grade. Continue trek to Kalimati campsite by pass through the pine forest will takes about 4 hrs walking.

On the next path is being challenge starting from Kalimati campsite towards to summit cone. Normally, the summit day start at 02.00 am and will takes about 5 hrs ascend.

Its not allowed to stay camp on the summit because of natural gas from the active crater "Jengrong Seloka".
