Mt. Arjuno is among Java’s 7 summits, standing as high as 3339m asl. This is a dormant volcano, but it’s not less interesting than its “twins”, Mt. Welirang. It is  a wide mountains area, so doing both mountains needs 3 days and 2 nights hike. Mt. Welirang is an active volcano, and producing lots of sulfur, from which the miners extract them. The trip will ends at Cangar public hot spring, where you can have a bath in a refreshing sulfuric hot water.

Rani Explained all our queries in detail over a whatsapp group, She made sure that we don’t miss anything while preparing for the trip. Accommodation provided by the adventure group was excellent, they took care of our special meal requests. Darun, our guide, was very patient. This being our first trekking trip we asked several questions repeatedly and each time he answered it with same patience. He made sure that all the group member feel comfortable and never tried pulling members out of their comfort zone. I am very much satisfied with the services provided by Rani Group. Special thanks to Darun and all the Porters, without them this trip was not possible.
