Who's going?


Hi All, 

I am planning to climb Mount Semeru near the end of April (long weekend). Semeru, also known as Mahameru, meaning 'The Great Mountain, is Java's highest peak and an active volcano. I have heard that the hike is physically demanding (some say it is more tiring than kinabalu), but the pay-off in terms of the view and the overall experience will make it something to remember for a lifetime. 

It does not require any technical skill and does not involve actually climbing. You will need a reasonable level of fitness. 

I am looking for friendly and easy-going hiking buddies who might want to join me on this adventure, because unfortunately none of my friends are into this sort of thing. 

I am booking with a tour organiser ( I am not organising this), and I've copied the details from the company website below. If you might be keen or if you want to find out more details, just send me a message. 

Cheerio! :)
