Last week during Easter long weekend I went to Jogyakarta and we went to Merapi area. This is my 2nd time to Merapi. This time I brought my family: my husband and 2 teens. We took a package of 3 hours to go around Merapi by off road jeep, the cost is IDR 300K. on the way we can stop to take pictures of kali Adem, Sungai Kuning etc. By going around we can see how the erruption has left so many ashes around, very dry, all become grey. We also passed the houses that has no top anymore, the cemetry of merapi victims and also museum sisa hartaku. A house that can tell you a story when the erruption happened, there was a clock that show that time, cows' bones, motorcycle frame, melted kitchen utensil, etc.
You can imagine the area before and after the erruption, so different.
from few villages become no village.
If you plan to visit Merapi better in the morning and when the weather is shine so you can see the Mount Merapi.
One thing that wonder me we found edelweis plant in one area, far down Merapi. Probably during the erruption the seed flew down and later when the soil become fertil it grows....
It was a good visit to Merapi and to feel its fresh cold whether.
