      Field Trips

      For APRS participants interested in joining one of the two field trips on the 25th, please register again for the trip of your choice at the APRS Registration Desk at The Alana Hotel and Convention Center. The maximum number of people for each trip is 250 and is on a "first come, first serve" basis, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

      Participants can choose one of two field trip locations: Merapi National Park or KPHP Kayu Putih. Please meet at the Alana Hotel reception area at 8am for the Merapi trip and 7am for the Kayu Putih trip.

        

      KPHP Kayu Putih LIVE NOW

      The visit to KPHP Kayu Putih will give visitors a look at how kayu putih, also known as gomentol or niaouli, essential oil is made from beginning to end. The tour starts at a kayu putih permanent nursery, where the plant is harvested. The kayu putih is then taken to a distillery to be processed into essential oil and prepared to be sold. The kayu putih project is a prime example of local production forest and a sustainable forest industry.

        

      Gunung Merapi National Park LIVE NOW

      The 2010 eruption of Mt. Merapi devastated the area, but through extraordinary natural restoration – with minimal human intervention – guests will now see a verdant and lush landscape. Thanks to the discovery of a long-dormant pioneer species, acacia decurens, the ecosystem at Gunang Merapi National Park was quickly on the path to recovery. An optional open-Jeep lava tour will also be available for an additional cost.
