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.

PJJP:: Dusun Gemer, Ngargomulyo, Dukun Muntilan # Central Java – Indonesia

PJJP is Perkumpulan Jalan-Jalan Pagi, morning jogging. Because we still in Pandemic Covid-19 situation, so our regular hash has stopped for a while and change into morning jogging. The difference is, there’s not bus rental, only private car with no more than 5 people inside (and mostly are family).

Today, we go to Dusun Gemer, Ngargomulyo, Dukun in Muntilan. Our destination is Santa Maria Cave but before arrive in there, we will walking first.

It’s small road, but some of the road was blocked by the tree so we have to walk under the tree or step over the tree.

There’s a path where the river from the side is flooding. So, some path to walk was cover by the water, and we have to walk in there. But it’s fun to walk with friends even my shoes is really wet, even my socks is wet too.

Santa Maria’s cave, I think this place is still renovated. But it’s good to come here and pray, and feel the peaceful. I hope that the world will recover soon from the virus, and we found the vaccine soon, and we all could back normal again.

We have morning jogging while wear our mask, I only uncover my face when take a photos.

It’s good to come out and enjoy the scene, so that I can refreshing my eyes. Always remember to wear mask, physical distancing and wash your hand. This is how we welcome our “New Normal”.

Stay healthy and take care..

The Path

Curug Silawe’s height is 50m. It is called Curug Silawe because when the waterfall has been found, there’s a spider net in there. (Lawe is means spider net in Javanese Language).

If you go straight and climb the stairs, you will found another waterfall called Curug Sigong which height 40m.

9th March, is also solar eclipse event. That time, the sun shine so brightly. Too bad, I didn’t have lense to capture the solar eclipse moment. Event with Sun Glasses, we still can’t see the solar eclipse process.

Some friends, bring Film Paper, and we can see the beautiful solar eclipse (but we can’t capture it using our cameras).

It’s really beautiful and we can’t see this everyday.
