Road Trip to Jogjakarta Part 1

Road Trip to Jogjakarta Part 2

After having dinner at Moro Lejar Restaurant, we directly go to our home – our base camp in Wonosari. There we make a plan for the next destination.

The Beach. Yeayyy!!   \ (^,^) /

Jogjakarta Special Region has four regencies: Sleman (where Mount Merapi is located), Kulon Progo, Bantul, Gunung Kidul (where Wonosari is located). And the beaches we gonna visit located just about an hour to the south of Wonosari.

There are lots of beaches in south of Wonosari, name it: Baron, Sepanjang, Kukup, Drini, Pulang Syawal (Indrayanti) etc

This time we visit only four of them, and spend most of our time in Baron, which is safer for families with kids.

Baron Beach

Baron Beach is located to the south of Wonosari. The sand is not white, but people keeping it clean.

This is the view from the angle where a river used to be there.

Honestly, I admire the sky more on that day, it was so blue and the cloud is so white. Traveling always reminds me to be grateful. How small we are compare to this world. Yet somehow you will realize there is something in the universe who always take care of us, this small being.

Something greater, something who always shows a path in every situation of our life.

Mount Merapi

While Wonosari is located in south east of Jogjakarta, Mount Merapi is located in Kaliurang, the north side of it.

After about three hours ride, we finally reach one of “Yogyakarta American Jeep community” basecamp in Kaliurang.

This community provide Mount Merapi “Off Road” Tour which charge us Rp 350rb (Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Rupiah ~ USD 35) for each car.

Underlined this: Off Road. That means all of those jeeps don’t use public/normal road. You can even ask them to choose a more dangerous way. Exciting and Fun!

The first stop of the tour is “The eruption of Mount Merapi”  Museum. There we can see how hot clouds can make all glasses melted.

My deep condolence for you my dear cow. I’m so sorry for taking picture of you.

I guess the most important part is “the memory”, pictures of Mount Merapi, the eruption – and the evacuation – from time to time.

The nearest place that we can reach from the peak of the Mountain, called Alien Rock.

From Alien Rock the Tour Leader  (which is the driver of the jeep) will take you to one of the bunker where two of the volunteers died during the eruption.

They said the bunker was designed as a safety hole when there is a hot cloud. But the two volunteers prediction was incorrect, not only hot clouds they should face, but also the magma.

At last, after this exciting trip, we decide to go back to our base camp in Wonosari by making a stop first at a Javanese Traditional Restaurant named Moro Lejar (still in Kaliurang area).

I just know that there is an extraordinary beautiful cave from an International Amazing Race. What a shame, I’m an Indonesian, but I don’t know even a bit! It is a vertical cave located in Semanu, Wonosari, about 50km south east of Jogjakarta, Central Java. This vertical cave that has trees grow from its bottom is …
