New regulation to climb Mount Semeru. Mount Semeru is the highest mountain in Java. Located in the area of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park and Mount Bromo. Mt Semeru commonly known as Mahameru has a height of 3,676 meters above sea level.
This altitude also makes this mountain became the highest volcano in Indonesia after Kerinci in Sumatra and Rinjani in West Nusa Tenggara. Administratively, Semeru is included in two districts, namely Malang and Lumajang districts.
Some time ago in early 2017 this mountain has been closed, but announced it has reopened that allows climbers to be able to climb this mount. However, the announcement was followed by new regulation on climb Mount Semeru.
- Recommended safe climbing limit only to Kalimati. As is known, Semeru has several times swallowed the victim, the cause is fatigue from the climb too far. Moreover, the tragedy of gas poisoning at the top and lost in the middle of the forest is common. The point of losing the victim more is in the top area far from Kalimati's post. From this fact, TBNTS asks climbers not to climb too far unless you are a professional.
- During this time, many travelers who like to try to find another path to the summit of Semeru. However, eventually they get lost and lose direction while on the road. Therefore, John Kenedie as Head of Central TNBTS imposed a ban on climbing other than the Ranu Pani line.
- The use of water at Ranu Kumbolo lake to bathe actually makes the habitat of animals and small fish disturbed. In addition, this water is devoted to drinking, not for self-cleaning. But there is nothing to worry about, this tourist area has been facilitated with a bathroom. But, better reduce the use of soap or shampoo for its undamaged habitat.
- Some time ago, Mt Semeru, especially in the area of Ranu Kumbolo got the spotlight from many people. The place was originally beautiful but gradually filled with garbage from climbers. To avoid the same incident, the climber is strictly forbidden to leave the garbage on the mountain. They can even be fined if they do not bring garbage bags when they leave or go home.
- While climbing the mountain, you can see a beautiful panorama of the forest and some flowers that have never existed before. One of them is the Edelweiss flower that is able to calm anyone who sees it. Unfortunately, this one flower increasingly rare. And the only way is to let it multiply in its place. So do not pick this rare plant from this mountain!
