Should take stock of dilebihkan because we will be camping, be it because of the atmosphere and a very beautiful, or because of exhaustion after climbing the mountain semeru. Ranu Pani’s ascent to the summit should semeru dilakukuan with the following phases:
a. Ranu Pani, Ranu Kumbolo From Ranu Pani at 7:00 WIB to Ranu kumbolo 10 km through the paths that take about 3-4 hours. Climber for the first time might be confused to find climbing routes, for it until after the welcome gate, continue to look to the left towards the hills, do not follow because of the wide street to the gardens of the population.

Semeru, which continues with the street Ascending and winding among the cemoro forest land dusty conditions. There are several places this inscription of the climber who died was 12 units as a sign of mourning. This inscription is made by each groupnya. One of the famous inscription is Soe Hok Gie and Idhan Lubis (Mapala UI) who died on 6 December 1969.

a. Location Gunung Api volcano Semeru is the highest in Java (3676 m dpl) and is one of the volcano is still active. Gn. Semeru is one straight in the north-south berarah complex with Gn. Pot and Peg. Tengger. Position location is between the administrative district of Malang Lumajang and geographic position with the LS 806 and 12,055 BT.
b. Form and structure Viewed from a distance Gn Semeru cone shaped like a perfect, but time is in the top of the mountain is shaped strato (cone terpancung) with a wide field furrowed in every tebingnya. That there is a crater in the top of the Gn. Semeru’s crater consists Mahameru already inactive and Jonggring Seloko craters that are still active. Jonggring Seloko crater is located in the southeast Mahameru peak in 1913 and 1946 contain a dome craters. On the south side of this dome pressing down crater edge, which caused the flow of lava to the south area Pasirian and Candipuro (Lumajang). Gn. Semeru is the termuda from Peg. But the pot has grown to become knowledgeable strato-vulkano a separate. Summary vulkanik issued as: blast ash, lava blocks of the old and young lava bombØ Material vulkanik lava mixed with rain water or river waterØ eruption cone, which caused the landslideØ slow growth of the lava and grain several times guguran hot lava.Ø
c. Geology and soil Geology Gn. Semeru volcano is the result kwarter young, with a type of rock: gray sand / tuf and vulkan Intermedia basis until the vulkan and physiographic associations andosol regosol grizzled and gray with ash parent material / sand and tuf intermedian to base. The form of the geological structure of rock that is not dense and strong ties butirannya not so easy tererosi dimusim penghujan. Type of soil is regosol, a combination of land with little development of the profile with solum shallow, thin on the parent material steady.
d. Climate D.1. Heavy rainfall and temperature The general climate of Gn. Semeru based on Schmidt & Ferguson bertipe B. With rainfall between 927 mm-5498 mm per year with the rainy days average 136 days / year. The rainy season falls in November-April. Along the route of travel began Ranu Pani (2200 mdpl) to Puncak Semeru temperature in the range of 2C-8C at night and early morning, whereas during the day ranging between 10C-21C. Sometimes occur in some areas snow rain that occurred during the rainy season, changes to dry season and vice versa. Dinginnya air travel along the route was not caused by the still air, but also because kencangnya wind blow to the valley so that the more cold air.
d.2. Wind and fog Based on the topographic region in general, the pattern formed gust wind patterns that are not stabilized, the wind sehinggai difficult to set / change. The form of the topography be surrounded by high cliffs of 200-500 m can actually enable flow wind speed, but as many cleft / alley ditebing will not bottle up the wind flow with the pace even faster. The form of a topographic basin often causes wind cycle. The wind to blow in this area closely associated with the pattern around the wind, the wind or wind gending southeast, northeast wind northwest wind Eden. Wind speeds ranging between 8-30 knots, which during the gale found many fallen trees. Winds usually blow this month between December-February, so the activities are climbing to semeru closed. On the morning until night, along the travel route is usually foggy. Regional ranu Kumbolo and Kalimati that made the overnight fog always covered at night.

Th 1963: Month of May occurred cloud and the flow of hot lava over Curah Leng Rong, Kali rod, and Semut visit. Hot clouds reach 8 km from the crater.
Th 1968: lava dome growth continues, lava flood victims to bring 3 people in the Village of wungkil
Th 1977: Month of December going guguran produce lava hot cloud, guguran distance of 10 km in the visit with the volume of sediment Twin 6.4 million m. Some clouds this apanas off to visit finger bowl. Tegal and rice field area of 110 ha was damaged in the village sumberurip, pine forest 450 ha, 2 broken bridges burned, and 2 rumag float chamber.
Th 1978: the eruption occurred with a high smoke reached the maximum 800 m above the crater edge, glide guguran cloud 7 km maximum heat.
Th 1981: In March and April occurred several times with hot clouds glide sliding distance of 10 km maximum. Pile endapannya 6.2 million m, the temperature in summer precipitation clouds near Dukuh supit Middle of 120C.

g. Monitoring Summary Gn. Semeru Monitoring of the activities Gn. Semeru still limited to the visual and seismic monitoring only. Visual observations made with the weather, and high color explosion, detonation and the observation direction guguran. While the seismic observation at this time to install the sensor is done with the seismometer at the two (2) location, which is in the Mountain and visit Leker Bang. Signal caught by the quake 2 seismometer in transmisikan via radio waves to Observation Post Mount Semeru fire which is located on Mount Sawur, and recorded with the recorder earthquake (PS-2). Results observation is reported to the Directorate Vulkanologi and mitigation Bancana Geology in Bandung use SSB (single Side Band). Monitoring using other methods such as deformation, gravity, electricity, and geomagnet conducted only temporary.
h. First climber The first climber to climb this mountain is Clignet (1838) a geologist from the Netherlands berkebangsaan southwest through Widodaren, next Junhuhn (1945) a Dutch botanist berkebangsaan from the north through the mountains Ayet-ayek, mountain-Inder and Inder Kepolo mountain.
