Welcome to Kaliurang & Kaliadem
There are two museums in the area, both worth exploring, and with a couple of choice places to stay, Kaliurang offers a delightfully refreshing escape from the heat and congestion of the Yogya plain.
On the way into the village of Kaliadem (3000Rp entry fee), there is the somewhat ghoulish spectacle of homes destroyed in Merapi's 2010 eruption, in which over 300 people died. Though the area is condemned, many lifelong residents have returned to reclaim their homes. Enterprising locals have turned the disaster into an opportunity by running off-road excursions to the lava flow.
