Semeru monitoring post is located on Gunung Sawur Peak. The location is not far from Wana Wisata Bambu, notably on the southern side. To reach Gunung Sawur is easy with paved access. And the scenery enroute is dominated with plantation.
The post is completed with an house used for lodge. It has various equipment to detect volcanic activity of Mt Semeru computerized or manually. Computerized system can halt on black out, but manual system can can still work with accumulator. From here, one can feel small scale to big scale of quake. And sunrise is very nice seen from this spot. Especially with when mountain sprouts smoke.
Not far from the post, there is a food stall run by local. Fried dishes can be enjoyed with hot coffee or tea while enjoying the nice panorama of Mt Semeru.
