JALUR BATU (SELECTA)

Rute pendakian lainnya yaitu dari kota Batu lewat Selecta yang terletak di sebelah Barat G. Welirang. Kota Batu merupakan tempat wisata yang memiliki sumber air hangat dari kaki G. Welirang dan keadaannva tidak berbeda jauh dengan Tretes. Dari arah Kediri atau Malang untuk menuju Batu kita dapat naik bus/Colt, selanjutnya perjalanan dari Batu menuju Selecta menggunakan Colt (angkutan pedesaan). Selecta salah satu tempat wisata yang ada di kota Batu dengan ketinggian 1.200 m dari permukaan laut.

Setelah tiba di Selecta kita dapat bermalam haik di Hotel maupun Losmen. Besok paginya dengan colt, kita menuju desa Kebonsari. Di desa ini kita harus menyiapkan air secukupnya untuk perjalanan ke puncak dan kembalinya.

Kita memulai pendakian dengan melewati ladang sayur-sayuran dan jalan setapak menuju ke arah timur laut dan terus naik melewati hutan tropika, dalam perjalanan ini samar-samar akan terlihat puncak G. Arjuna.

Mendaki selama 5 - 6 jam akan mengantarkan kita pada Persimpangan Kembar yang menghubungkan Puncak G. Welirang dan G. Arjuno, tepatnya sebelah tenggara G. Kembar I. Kita masih harus menempuh perjalanan sekitar 2 jam lagi untuk menuju puncak G. Welirang ke arah kiri dengan melintasi puncak Gn. Kembar 1. Atau menuju puncak Gn. Arjuno ke arah kanan melintasi puncak Gn. Kembar 2 dengan waktu tempuh sekitar 4 jam.

 

The cool, fresh hill town of Batu was a retreat for the Dutch in colonial days. Similarly, these days wealthy local business people from Surabaya and Malang have weekend houses up here whilst the less fortunate visit on a more casual basis. The area is also a major agricultural centre with apple orchards everywhere and a large number of orchid nurseries.

Until 2001, Batu was administratively part of Malang but since that time it has been a municipal town in its own right.

Batu and the nearby town of Selecta (specifically constructed as a tourism venue in 1928) sit on the slopes of Mount Welirang and Mount Arjuna (Gunung Welirang and Arjuna) about 20 km to the west of Malang. Batu, Selecta and the surrounding villages make for a charming place with much that will appeal to visitors and a couple of days exploring this beautiful area is a worthy part of any vist to Java.

Climb Mount Arjuna and Mount Welirang. This is a tough 3 day expedition for experienced trekkers only. These two mountains combine to form a volcanic massif. Dormant Arjuna is at 3,338 m and active Welirang at 3,156m and the two are joined by huge saddle ridge. There are several ways to approach the trek but the best start point is at Selecta, 4 km north of Batu. You will need a guide and these are best found in Selecta village. If you are staying in Batu your hotel may also be able to help with connecting you to a good guide. Plan for two nights on the mountains in temperatures which can approach freezing. There is no need to cart tents as there are simple hut shelters used by the local sulphur workers and all guides will know the locations. You will need a warm sleeping bag and appropriate clothing though.

The lower slopes are lush but this gives way to a high terrain which more recalls the Andes or Tibet than tropical Indonesia! The same is true of the basic shelters in which you will be sleeping. The route from Selecta tackles Arjuna first and the views from the top are stunning - the whole volcanic spine of East Java stretches before you. The following day, Welirang offers similar magnificence with the added thrill of a steaming, sulphurous active crater. Be very careful on Welirang and take no risks - this Mountain is classed as a very active A-type by geologists. This is a very rewarding trek with views as good, if not better, than from any of Java's volcanic peaks.

Batu is a city located in East Java, Indonesia. Formerly, It was a part of Malang regency; but in 2001, Batu became an independent city legalized by Act of 11, 2001, when it became a municipal town with its own city mayor and council.

A population of 170,000 people, it mostly consists of Javanese and Madurese ethnics. The town used to be a recreation place for the Dutch colonial officers in the Dutch colonial area (before 1945).

A historic colonial-style hotel is the Kartika Wijaya, founded in 1891 by the Sarkies Brothers.

Rusa masih sering diburu oleh penduduk di Gn.Arjuna, aneka jenis burung adalah satwa yang masih bisa dilihat pendaki ketika dalam perjalanan. 

Dari arah Kediri atau Malang untuk menuju Batu kita dapat naik bus/ Colt, selanjutnya perjalanan dari Batu menuju Selecta menggunakan Colt (angkutan pedesaan).
