Mount Api Purba Nglanggeran located at Baturagung, northside of Gunung Kidul, with height 200-700 mdpl. For the exact location, it located at Nglaggeran Village, Patuk (22km from Wonosari City), outside of Yogyakarta City. It tooks approx 1 hour to go there from Yogyakarta City. The mountain is beautiful becuase It was formed like a giant stone.
Just go there with direction to Wonosari City, until you found Piyungan Market. Then after you pass intersection which has Police Station in the corner of the intersection, just straight until approximately 1km, then there’s a fork, turn left then turn left again (don’t turn right of you will back to the main road). The road is smaller than the main road. Then just follow the road, untul you found another fork, then turn left again. In the next fork, you already in the Nglaggeran Village Area. Our hash car park field located by turn right (See “P”), and the mountain located by turn left.
The litology of this area compiled by old volcanic material and landscape, has a very beautiful and unique geology and high scientific value. From various source of research and references, Mount Nglanggeran is an ancient volcanoes.
This time, Yogyakarta hash organization celebrate their birthday at MountApi Purba Nglanggeran. We parked our car at Soccer field. This place is runsite, which means we start our running / walk from here, and ended in here too.
Then we started to walk. Me and my friend, choose short path. This is the view while we walk.
There’s an Embong Fruit Garden in there. Short path for hash, ended in that Embong. We can using our car to reach there, but some people walk to get there.
Actually, after we walk till the path to the Embong, my friend said that she tired. So we back to the car field, and then she said that we go to the Embong using car. So here we are, using car while some others walking. XD
The Fruit Garden was just inaugurated, so the fruit hasn’t available yet. We only roaming surround the Embong. Embong is like a small lake. The view is amazing.
