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.

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.

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.

Butuh Village, is the highest village in Magelang Regency, Central Java. And recently, this village become very famous. People call the village Magelang’s Nepal.

The house building in this village, is built very unique in Mount Sumbing’s slope, from the bottom to uphill, with colorful color, and if we see it from the downhill, it looks like terracing. And with background Mount Sumbing, and blue sky, makes this place very beautiful.

The photospot located at Mount Sumbing basecamp in Kaliangkrik, there’s a photospot in there. And there is also a coffee shop, you can enjoy the beautiful scene with drink coffee. The weather is cold, because you are in 1620 altitude above sea level. Don’t forget to bring jacket when you come here in the morning.

If you want to climb mount Sumbing, this is one of the basecamp that you can take the path.

When the sun is high enough, the fog sometimes come down and hide the scenery.

Dusun Butuh located in Kaliangkrik, Magelang Regency. This place is famous with name Nepal Van Java.

I heard that actually this village is already known before, but nowadays people more openly in selfie and posting it on Social Media, so the influence is bigger than before. That’s why, this place is quiet famous now.

You can walk around the village too, the villagers make some building paint beautifully. But please respect the villagers, keep quiet and polite.

PJJP :: Mount Telomoyo Magelang Regency / Semarang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

July 12, 2020

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 JavaIndonesia. The volcano was constructed over the southern flank of the eroded Pleistoceneage 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.

2nd Post

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.
