Day 1. Arrival Surabaya - Transfer to Tretes - Trekking to Welirang (L/D)
(Recommended arrival by morning flight)
Upon arrival at Juanda Airport with a morning flight, meet & greet with our guide. Transfer to Tretes Village (1-2 hours) for starting the trek to Mount Welirang. It will take 5-6 hrs to hike through lush temperate mountain forest to the second camp at about 2700 m elevations. Our camp will be set up near the village of the sulfur workers who live here during their 5-days shifts. The village consists mostly of simple huts and is a perfect setting for exciting photography. For the workers, we will be a positive distraction, and they are usually happy to show us around. During the trek, we only need to carry small daypacks. Overnight in tents
Day 2 Mount Welirang - Transfer to Seloliman Nature Reserve (B/L/D)
In the morning, we start hiking to the summit area of Welirang volcano. We have time to explore the summit craters of Welirang and its large fumaroles fields, the sites where the sulfur is being quarried using primitive tools. Together with the miners, we walk up the mountain to its top dotted with craters and fumaroles (2-3 hours walk). The rest of the day free to explore the fumaroles or the rest of the mountain, then we go down to Camp Site, and after lunch, we go back to Tretes village then drive to Seloliman. Seloliman is situated on the slopes of the sacred Penanggungan volcano.
We will stay overnight at PPLH Seloliman Environmental Education Centre with delicious dinner provided by their staff.
The Centre's accommodation is atmospheric, with open-air bathrooms built in harmony with the surrounding forest. This is a beautiful spot to appreciate nature - sit outside at night under the stars, taking in the peacefulness of the surrounding mountain scenery.
Day 3. Seloliman Nature Reserve Tour - Transfer out Surabaya (B/L)
After breakfast, we will meet volunteers who are working at the PPLH Seloliman Environmental Education Centre to learn and hear about their environmental program as well as visiting a historical place of Jolotundo Temple and its spring nearby.
