Day 3 – Wednesday, 25 April 2018

Field trips

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 08:00 for the Merapi trip and 07:00 for the Kayu Putih trip.
For APRS participants interested in joining one of the two field trips, 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.

Gunung Merapi National Park

The 2010 eruption of Mount 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 decurrens, 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 Rp 150,000 per person.

KPHP Kayu Putih

The visit to KPHP Kayu Putih will give visitors a look at how kayu putih essential oil, also known as gomentol or niaouli, 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 a sustainable forest industry.
