Hello everybody,

Im Going to Indonesia this summer and I want to climb Mount Lawu...
I've already been like 10-12 times round that area(Solo, Sragen etc.) And this time i want to climb the Lawu. My question is, how long does it usually takes to climb it to top( I'm going to sleep on top and watch the sunrise) and how long does the trip back down take(including some intervals).

Greetings Danny161192

Hi Daniel...

I climbed the Lawu last year (because Merapi was already too dengeorus) and it rougly took me a whole weekend. If went with a local hiking club form Yogya started at 17.00 in the afternoom arrived at the top early in the morning around 4.00 - 5.00. We had some food at the top and did a little nap (got heavliy sunburned, for the first time in my 3 months out don´t underestimate the¨power of the sun at a mountaintop) and also watched the sunrise, that was awesome. From the top back to the end-point took around 8 hours.

Have fun..but it won´t be fun all the time, it is a tough trip .

Ik heb afgelopen jaar de Lawu beklommen vanaf Cemoro Sewu tussen Tawangmanggu en Sarangan. Het was een top-avontuur. De klim omhoog duurde 7 uurtjes en terug naar beneden was een trip van 4 uur. Heerlijk geslapen ondanks de kou (-5/-10 graden) en het gevoel op de top was heerlijk Emoticon: Smile . De klim viel wel mee, maar na pos 4 moet je klauteren met handen en voeten, want daar is het zeker steil. Gelukkig hoef ik me niet zorgen te maken over verbranding door de zon vanwege mn kleurtje Emoticon: Nice . Er is ook nog een heerlijk waterbronnetje met ''goddelijk water''. De zonsopgang was prachtig en de vulkanengordel richting Oost-Java kwam berg voor berg aan de horizon tevoorschijn, prachtig! Mensen die dit ook van plan zijn, zeker doen, het is de moeite waard!
