Kopeng is a small town in Central Java.
Kopeng is a mountainous town (1500 m above sea level) whose name is believed to come from the word "kopek" (means "breast milk(?)")
Kopeng covers a small area and therefore quite walkable. Some people choose to hire and ride a horse (with the "guide") for a leisurely "tour".
Mount Merbabu (3142 m above sea level) Umbul Songo waterfall (literally "nine fountains") - a seasonal waterfall which is completely dried up during the dry season!
Do not buy vegetables or fruit (although they have a wet market) if you are not prepared to bargain hard.
Indonesian food - fried rice, soto, rawon.
Hotel Kartika Wisata Kopeng (inside the recreational park). Rooms with hot water. Restaurant and swimming pool close by, owned by the same hotel. (It is an old hotel which has been part of the recreational park).
Griya Loka Indah Hotel (luxurious hotel).
In addition, there are numerous villas for rent. Before checking in, find out whether the villa that you choose has hot showers or not, as the temperature tends to be freezing cold at night (and cool at midday).
