Mount Merapi to Plaosan Temple - Advanced

If you enjoy a fast and flowing off road terrain with plenty of single and double track then this ride is for you. We start with an early transfer from your hotel in Yogyakarta to high up the flanks of Mount Merapi. Weather permitting you can enjoy amazing views of the volcano. For here we start riding mostly downhill on the slopes of Mount Merapi from 1,600m above sea level all the way back down to the lower grounds. The scenery will simply take your breath away. Amazing local trails, forest, snake fruit plantations and beautiful local villages. The higher parts are all-mountain type riding and the second parts are xc. There is some uphill as well. This day ride has two different sections and we will shuttle back up in between with our support car. The ride finishes at the not frequent visited but stunning 9th century buddhist Plaosan Temple which we you can visit. From here we transfer you back to your accommodation in Yogjakarta (45min) or Prambanan (10min).

Intermediate: Tours are suitable for riders with good fitness level. Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, some single track, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for an intermediate tour.

Advanced: Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with great fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough double track and single track. Sections of trail can be challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and natural elements. Please make sure you are not choosing a tour that is too difficult for your skill level. This is your vacation, not army camp! Expect to ride about 4-5 hours per day, covering an average of 45km.
