near Silancur Highland, Mangli, Magelang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

September 02, 2020

Today hash route is near Silancur Highland. Located at Dadapan, Mangli, Kaliangkrik, Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. From Magelang City, you can go to Bandongan direction, just go straight, and arrive at Market, turn left to Mangli Direction. Because it is located at Mount Sumbing Slope, so the road to go there is uphill and sometimes there’s sharp turn.

With altitude about 1300m above sea level, this place has beautiful scenery. No matter you come here in the morning, or in the evening, each scene has its unique.

This time, our hash route has short and long, and I follow the long route, which trekking nearby hills from car parking to Silancur Highland (the short one, walk along the big road from car parking to Silancur Highland).

We didn’t enter the Silancur Highland because there’s people in there. We still have to social distancing, even we each other has 1m distancing each and always wear our mask. (I only with my 2 friends).

Mount Merapi illuminated by the Sunrise, Magelang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

August 26, 2020

Today we are hashing near Kedung Kayang Waterfall. Because I have a plan to trekking in Mountain on September, so today I decided to join long trek.

We won’t visit the Kedung Kayang Waterfall, instead walk another path.

Kedung Kayang waterfall located in Wonolelo, from Magelang go to Blabak, and turn left to Ketep Pass direction. But, don’t turn left to Ketep Pass, instead turn right to Boyolali direction.

The hash route for long is not too hard this time. First you follow the good path, and in there, we see a beautiful scene: Mount Merapi illuminated with sunrise, while Mount Merbabu didn’t, so it looks like the sun splitting Mount Merapi into 2 color.

After walk quiet far, we turn left and meet the small and steep path. We go down to valley, and then going up, the path is very small and you have to becareful because the soil is wet.

Nothing extreem path in here, and we took 5,22km.

It’s nice to be able to trekking in the mountain with beautiful view.

You can stay here, it’s very peacefull, and the air is very fresh. You can enjoy local food too in here and going around by bicycle.

Walk about 300metres, you will arrive at Ladon Little Island and Pasar Klathakan. From what the staff said, the sand here is white, just like near the beach. So you could feel beach situation in here. And you can ride any boat to go around, take selfie, ride traditional boat from woods, or only sit around the river and buy some locals product in Pasar Klathakan (market).

Too bad, when I arrive here, it’s rainy very hard the night before. So the river is flooding and there’s no white sand.

PJJP :: Kopeng # Central Java – Indonesia

Today is another day for outing, morning walk together. And the destination is Kopeng.

The walk is about 5km with beautiful scenery.

Indonesia is a tropic country and the weather usually 20-30 degree celcius. But some place because located in high place, sometimes the weather could be under 20 degree celcius. And Kopeng, a village near Salatiga is one of them. When we arrive in there at 06:30, it has 17 degree celcius with wind. And it’s really cold.

When we arrive there, I saw this 2 cute little cat running anywhere and play.

Then we started to walk. The road is easy with enough up and down hill And beautiful scenery.

this is actually going up hill path, but don’t know after I took the picture, it looks like a tunnel.

We also passed by Flower and Plant Shop, which each shop designated like a flower garden. Surely those who love flower and plant will love in here and buy some plant.

Then we arrive at Kopeng Tourism Spot, and my mom buy some vegetables to cooking at home. A lot of people in my city like to go to Kopeng to buy some vegetables or fruits. While shopping, we can also enjoy the fresh air and the scenery.

After arrive at the car parking, and eat some snack and drink, the leader offer us to go to a beautiful place which is not far from there. We joint the passenger so we don’t need many car to go there and keep the rest in here.

It took abouf 10-15 minutes to go there but the road is very narrow, only enough for 1 car and located higher than before so you have to use a good car and skillful driver.

Panorama Technic

We arrive at Bukit Harapan Cuntel. I have changed my shoes to sandals because I’m afraid if my shoes are dirty so the car will be dirty too. And now, we need to climb a little in the sand and my sandal is dirty too 😜

In Bukit Harapan Cuntel, we can see 5 mountains: Mount Sumbing, Mount Sindoro, Mount Andong, Mount Telomoyo, and Mount Gajah Mungkur.

The scenery is very beautiful. I used panorama to take the picture.

Then we plan to go back to the car parking. But don’t know why suddenly, we are arrived at Merbabu Pass, a basecamp for climbing Mount Merbabu via Wekas.

Becareful if you go there, the road is narrow and uphill, with about 30-45 degrees. You should have a perfect car and skillfull driver.

Mount Merbabu is a dormant stratovolcano in Central Java province on the Indonesian island of Java. The name Merbabu could be loosely translated as ‘Mountain of Ash‘ from the Javanese combined words; Meru means “mountain” and awu or abu means “ash“. Elevation: 3.145m.

We still need to walk uphill to arrive at Merbabu Pass. Again, wrong choice to change to Sandals haha..

Then we go back to the car parking Kopeng, and it turns out we arrive at Kaponan. Which means, we go along way around.

Actually I should have arrive at home at 09:00 but now I arrive at home at 12:00 😂.
