Mount Merbabu (Indonesian: Gunung 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,[2] the site of the village of Selo and highly fertile[citation needed] farming land.

There are two peaks; Syarif (3,119 m) and Kenteng Songo (3,145 m). Three U-shaped radial valleys extend from the Kenteng Songo summit in northwesterly, northeastly and southeastly directions.

    First part from wekas to summit was quite nice, even done on cloudy days. Final part was a bit steep and some parts require to use hands.
    After sleping on base camp (the higher one full of locals youngsters), we started our way back to selo. Once again it is very steep, path is ruined by overuse leading to a sandy sleepery path... even with trekking poles we falled countless times !
    Last part before selo is quite easy, there fex possible hike paths, all of them seem leading to selo, according to locals whom we asked direction.
    Nevertheless sunrise on merapi was a delightfull, and it not needed to be at the top for enjoying the viw, base camp 3 or 4 on selo side offering the same.
