Mount Merapi is located in the north of Yogyakarta with height level of 2.920 meters above sea level. From a distance one can always see the white smoke appear from the top of volcano, raise to the air and moving clouds in the blue sky, that a beautiful scene can be observed from Plawangan, the observatory resort
This active volcano, There are hill resorts on the mountain slope for relaxations with invigorating weather one of them is well known as 'Kaliurang'.Mountain climbing, camping and observing the incredible active volcano can be arranged through local in-house Tour Operators.Driving through Yogyakarta's countryside, guests will enjoy the scenic farmlands spread out with the horizon of the mountainous landscape......
But Mount Merapi is now active that have cause misery and deaths.
More than 400 people are confirmed dead, but many bodies have yet to be recovered from coastal areas and more than 300 people are still missing.
Heavy rain and high tides are making it hard for boats to deliver supplies to the isolated Mentawai islands off the west coast of Sumatra.
Hope and sympathy for residents around Merapi and the tsunami affecting the area.
