All category will circulating around Arjuno-Welirang. The well known complex of mountain with its beautiful view but yet very challenging elevation profile to reach both peak of Welirang and Arjuno.

Mount Arjuno

Mount Arjuno (sometimes spelled Mount Arjuna) is inactive volcano  in East Java, Indonesia with altitude 3,339 m above sea level. Mount Arjuno is located on the border of Batu, Malang and Pasuruan  and is under Raden Soerjo Forest Park authority. Mount Arjuno is the third highest mountain in East Java after Mount Semeru and Mount Raung, and is the fourth highest on the island of Java.


Arjuno  is adjacent to Welirang , Kembar I, and Kembar II. The peak of Mount Arjuno is located on one ridge that is the same as the peak of Welirang mountain, so this complex is often referred to as Arjuno-Welirang. The Arjuno-Welirang complex itself is on two older volcanoes, Ringgit in the east and Lincing in the south. Fumaroles with sulfur reserves are found in a number of locations in these mountains, such as on the summit of Mount Welirang, the peak of Kembar II, and on a number of hiking trails.

There will be a strong Sulphur gas at the peak of Welirang. You need to be cautious when reach this area.

Normally this mountain is reached from three climbing points, Lawang, Tretes and Batu. In the MSC category you will climb up Welirang from Kaliandra resort then united with Tretes climbing point. Then going down to Cangar-Batu, climb up back again towards Arjuno peak and going down hill via Lali Jiwo forest-Budug Asus towards UB forest.
