Climbing Mount Merapi is possible, with or without guide. Since it’s not easy to get a good guide here, going by oneself is an option. One has to be somewhat careful then, though, and to consider some things before starting. The reward of the climb is the view deep down into the crater of one of the most active and dangerous volcanos on earth.

Borobodur (also: Borobudur) is a huge, medieval stepped pyramid buddhist temple; it’s the largest buddhist temple in the world. Borobodur has been built in the Kedu plain in south central Java in the 8th and 9th century CE. The grand monument served as a spiritual destination for pilgrims who approached it via the three kilometers long procession road which starts at Candi Mendut and leads over Candi Pawon to the main temple. Climbing up Borobodur monument, the pilgrims studied the sophisticated relief panels who tell a number of buddhist stories.
