Now, a word of caution:
Mount Merapi is an active volcano and erupted in 2010 (hundreds of people died) & 2013. The hiking of Mount Merapi, both ascending and descending, requires CONCENTRATION and EXTREME CAUTION. The path can be dark, very cold, rainy, dusty, slippery, and rocky at times. The summit is just a foot's slip away from Mt. Merapi's crater which is filled with poisonous gases. Some individuals (ie. Eri Yunanto, R.I.P.) have in fact, fallen into the crater and died. Eri is said to have died while trying to take a 'selfie' photograph, so again, be very careful when making any extraneous movements.
Many tourists have fully enjoyed their trek without feeling the need to reach the summit.
You should only climb as far as you feel comfortable and safe and while Artha Tours does try to provide a reasonable level of safety, this tour is done fully at your own risk.
