Looking for fellow hikers/trekkers who wish to challenge themselves on Mount Semeru(3,676m) in Indonesia.

This is a short trip primarily focused on summiting Mount Semeru(3,676m), with an additional day of sightseeing at Mount Bromo after the trek. Only 2 days of leave is required!

Mount Semeru is the highest mountain in Java and is an active volcano. It is a challenging 2D1N trek. The route takes you past the picturesque Lake Kumbolo while hiking across the grasslands of Oro-Oro Ombo and camping at the base of Mount Semeru. The next morning, we will trek to the summit and see the amazing views from the highest peak of Java. The summit push of Mount Semeru is especially tiring, as you ascend up the steep and narrow ash slopes but the reward at the end makes it worth the while.

Who is this for? 

This is for anyone who wishes to challenge themselves. Semeru is very similar in difficulty to Rinjani. If you are looking for a rewarding trek or looking to try your first multi-day trek, this is for you. Beginners are welcomed, but a lot of perseverance is and willpower is required for this trek. Fitness will help a lot, if not to maximize success, it would be good to join the training sessions.  Be prepared to walk 6-8h during the trek.  

Total Duration: 5 days
Proposed Dates: 16 May - 20th May
Flight timings:
16th May 08:15 Singapore - 09:35 Surabaya
20th May 10:15 Surabaya - 13:30 Singapore

Trek Duration: 2D1N

The trek from Ranupane Village to the Kalimati Basecamp is 15km. It is a gradual elevation of around 880m. The trek from Kalimati Basecamp to the Summit is around 900m ascent on a steep ash slope. After descending, we have to trek 15km back to Ranupane Village.

Suggested stay in Surabaya: My Studio Hotel Juanda Airport (~9$ per night) with free airport shuttle.

If you wish to extend the trip by staying longer in Surabaya/Malang or in a different accommodation, go ahead! The transport, however, will be fixed to return back to Surabaya on the 19th.

If most of the people are only interested in Semeru, it is possible to reduce by 1 day and skip Mount Bromo. Cost will also be reduced. 

Trek Cost: 550 SGD
