Kopeng Treetop Adventure Park was established in 2010 as part of a worldwide treetop network that first opened in the French Alps in 1995. Kopeng Treetop Adventure Park provides adventures from tree to tree with different challenges. It is located near Kopeng Natural Park (Taman Wisata Kopeng) in Kopeng Village, Getasan district, Central Java. The park is accessible via a 30 minutes drive by car or motorcycle from Salatiga City, and 90 minutes from Semarang, the capital city of Central Java.

Kopeng Treetop Adventure Park is situated at the foot of Merbabu Mountain. The location is surrounded by pine trees and the air is refreshingly cool. To get to the destination from the main road you still have to walk about 10 minutes along a small uphill road that’s just wide enough for one car to pass. Don’t worry though; the cool air is very nice while you are walking.
