Slopes of the south side are in the administrative district of Sleman, Yogyakarta Special Region, and the rest are in the region of Central Java province, namely Magelang district on the west side, Boyolali district in the north and east, and Klaten district in the southeast. The forest area around the peak to be Mount Merapi National Park area since 2004.

Merbabu Mountain (3142 m asl), is a mountain belonging to the old volcano, located adjacent to the Mount Merapi, one of an active volcano. Mount Merbabu have many peaks of the shadow (not the original peak). Since the number of top climbers often complain and saturated but in fact it is this which makes it challenging for mountain climbing. The peak of Mount Merbabu consists of two peaks of the Peak Sarip located at an altitude of 3120 m above sea level and Songo Kenteng Peak with an altitude of 3142 m above sea level. Both these peaks have a different natural panorama.
