Mount Merbabu is a dormant stratovolcano in Central Java province on the Indonesian island of Java. The name Merbabu could be loosely translated as 'Mountain of Ash' from the Javanese combined words; Meru means "mountain" and awu or abu means "ash".
 
As you reach the summit ridge, you turn left to climb the last few metres to Summit 4, Syarif (3,142m). This is a fabulous camping spot, with views of Sumbing, Sindoro, Merbabu’s highest summits and Merapi. There are surprisingly many good flat camping areas, and you may well have the whole summit to yourself, until the sunrise hikers make their way up from Summit 3.
 
Another great camping spots and is Summit 6, which is near the true summit and called Kenteng Songo (3,167m). To reach Summit 6 from Summit 4, you drop back down and hike along the ridge between the summits. The path actually passes around the south side of Summit 5, Ondorante (3,000m), before the final steep climb to reach Summit 6. A short hop from Summit 6 is the Summit 7 – Triangulasi – which appropriately has a pile of stones and a blue cement rock at the very highest point.
