Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the same place as the Alien Rock. It should be called a rock instead of a stone as it is quite big. This flew out of the volcano during the eruption.

A big rock that resembling a face from certain angle. Maybe not too impressive - or even boring - for regular tourists, but if you can appreciate nature more, how it got there and formed like that from Merapi magma chamber, it is pretty amazing.

It's one of three++ stops from the short Merapi Lava Tour. The surrounding was nice; an edge of a cliff where you can enjoy very nice views far down.

This is one of the sights we were taken to during the Merapi Jeep tour. It is a rock which resembles a face which they named alien rock or stone.

A fascinating piece of rock that emerged out ot that horrendous volcanic explosion at Merapi in 2010. The locals have named it Alien Stone because,.from certain angles, it does look like a face.
For me, it was a gruesome and grim reminder of the power that was unleashed by that volcano and it gave me a new respect for the Javanese who always live under this kind of threat because Indonesia is in the Ring of Fire.

Alien?....Was this rock dropped by the alien from outerspace?. We should not come looking for it if it was not part of the jeep tour. It's a big stone came from the mount Merapi when it was erupted.

We stop here during our third day trip in Yogyakarta . We did Merapi morning sunrise with Jeep tour , but unfortunately can't see the sunrise . Was to cloudy . On the way back we stop here to see this place . Its call Alien stone because of the shape of the big stone looking like a face of human and the other side looking like a head of lion .
Actually nothing special but worth to visit to fine another picture spot

More impressive due to the force taken to send this giant rock so far rather than the face. Reminder of the devastating power of the volcano
