Volcanolovers in Indonesia
Mount Arjuno (3339 M) is the second highest volcano in East Java after the famous Mount Semeru. Arjuno has a sister mountain, Mount Welirang, just to the Northwest of it.
Often hikers climbed both of them in one go since they are only separated with short saddle. Trestes is a famous tourist place in this area, situated just at the east slope of this mountain. Tretes offer beautiful sceneries and idylic natural hotsprings.
