Anyone willing to go to Jogja in Feb 2009? How about going to Dieng Plateau from 6-11th Feb 2009. Or if we want to climb Mount Merbabu, we can add another day & coming back home thru Solo. The cost is approximately RM410 per person for the airflight. The total cost might not go beyond RM1000, unless you wanna shopping (till drop) in Malioboro.
Why Feb? Because that’s the time I’ll be free. The following is the possible itinerary:
4PM – Arrive at Jogja, stay at low-cost hotel & enjoy nite-life in Jogja. Can shopping for head scarf here….they are cheap
7AM – Depart to Dieng Plateau ~ estimated 4 hours journey
12PM – Lunch & solat, then enjoy the places in Dieng
Continue to visit places in Dieng
7AM-12PM – Still at Dieng
12PM – Depart to Selo, basecamp to Mount Merbabu ~ maybe 6 hours journey
6PM – Overnight at the basecamp or nearby rest house
7AM – Trekking Mount Merbabu & enjoy scenery from the summit
9AM – Trekking down Mount Merbabu
2PM – Should reach the basecamp by lunch time
4PM – Depart to Solo & stay overnight there
8AM – Depart home
This is Mount Merbabu as seen from Mount Merapi…
You know what? We can photograph the infamous Mount Merapi from Merbabu!! Well…I have been to Merapi….muahahaha….
BEWARE! One major risk! Weather! February is known as the wet season in Indonesia. We have to study the risk first.
If interested, leave your comment. I’ll contact you if confirmed.
