Mount Merbabu is a dormant stratovolcano in Central Java province on the Indonesian island of Java. The name Merbabu could be loosely translated as 'Mountain of Ash' from the Javanese combined words; Meru means "mountain" and awu or abu means "ash". 

The active volcano Mount Merapi is directly adjacent on its south-east side, while the city of Salatiga is located on its northern foothills. A 1,500m high broad saddle lies between Merbabu and Merapi, the site of the village of Selo and highly fertile farming land.

3. Lawu Mountain (3,265 m)

Place to pray
Lawu Mountain has the a lot of histories as the mystical mountain which location between East Java and Central Java province. There are :
1. The last location of Prabu Brawijaya V and his followers died.
2. The location which use Raden Sujono and his wife for meditation as reaching the power or willingness becoming the leader in Yogyakarta. He gets Hamengku Buwono I as a degree.
3. The location of Kiai Ageng Atas Angin’s ( Sunan Lawu) meditation

What the adventure looking for ?
1.  Enjoy a caldera on the top. If dry season we can see cloud wave.
2. Javanese tradition look like praying over night from one place to another place around Lawu without doing any activity. But when Javanese new year (13/14 Oct 2015), there is like a barbeque party will be happenning for celebrating his/her hope which already reached.
