Today’s PJJP / morning walk is in Mount Telomoyo. Some of us didn’t hike until the peak, and some of us hike until the peak. And I’m here, I only hike about 5km, and because I have some senior with me, and fortunately there’s an empty jeep that going up so we ride the jeep.
Mount Telomoyo is a stratovolcano in Central Java, Indonesia. The volcano was constructed over the southern flank of the eroded Pleistocene–age Soropati volcano, which has a height of 1,300 metres (4,300 ft). The Soropati volcano collapsed during the Pleistocene, leaving a U-shaped depression. Mount Telomoyo grows on the southern side of the depression, reaching over 600 metres (2,000 ft) above the depression’s rim.
We start from Ngablak basecamp Cakrawala Point area. From here, you can go up using motorcycle or rent a jeep. It’s IDR 150.000/one way. You can climb from another route too.
This basecamp is the one bigger because there’s a car park and many people going up using motorcycle. Car park is IDR 5.000/car.
We started to hike and about 1.5 km, we found this stone hill. Very beautiful, and heard that it should has a artificial waterfall. But that time, they turn it off because they are building a dragon statue.
Then we arrive at 1st post. The view is amazing.
The road to the peak is very nice, and didn’t difficult at all.
After about 5km, the jeep is coming.
After a while, we arrive at the peak. The scene from the peak is very beautiful.
In the peak, there’s so many antenna.
You can see many mountain from the Mount Telomoyo’s Peak. I don’t know the precise because some of the sky were covered by cloud.
While waiting for the jeep pick us up, we enjoy the view.
Then after the jeep arrive, we go back to the basecamp because we are afraid if everyone is waiting for us already.
Actually, there are many people riding motorcycle to go up and it’s very crowded. Hopefully, they still pay attention to new normal condition: Physical Distancing and wearing mask.
