What do you think from this photo? The photo tell us about the history of Merapi eruption that happened a few years ago that killed some people, include rescue team. When I went to Yogya yesterday, I visited Kinahrejo located at Umbulharjo village where it sounds familiar in our ears since Mbah Maridjan (alm) as a key person or “gatekeeper” of Mount Merapi who died when the eruption with hot clouds fell down to the village in 2010.
When you reach the Kinahrejo from the Kaliurang, you’ll feel a difference atmosphere, a mystic. Don’t know it just my feel or some people have the same. But you can see the silent witness about Merapi’s eruption such as the ambulance car and Mbah Maridjan’s house after the eruption.
Still from Kinahrejo, you can take a look to Kaliadem or “cold river”, it’s the stone or material from the inside of mount Merapi when the eruption happen.
There are so many stories about mount merapi that I can’t explain now, but you can visit the site to feel the atmosphere about mount merapi. Thank you!
