How to Get Here

  1. Fastest way to get to UnaUna Volcano is by flying to Ampana (VPM),

The easiest way to book is through traveloka.com, the flights between Jakarta to Ampana via Palu has to be booked separately, however while check in Jakarta you could ask for assistance from the Check in Counter staff to check you and your baggage all the way to Ampana, that way you can make the connection without problem.

 

Best connection from Europe, USA, Singapore, is to fly to Jakarta (CGK) the capital,

Flight from Jakarta to Palu leaves at 05.00 am (Lion Air)

Palu (PLW) to Ampana (VPM) leaves at 9.30 am (Lion Air)

Lion Air has been lifted from EU ban effective since 2016.
