Located in the heart of the ring of fire with hundreds of volcanoes
littering its belt, Indonesia boasts one single volcano that almost all
local mountaineers aspire to ascend: Mount Semeru, the highest summit in
Java, legendary for both its stunning scenery and extremely challenging
terrain. The Jakarta Post recently joined HUMUS FEUI, the University of
Indonesia’s School of Economics’ mountaineering club, to climb the
3,676 meter-tall active volcano.
