Itinerary

Day 1. Jakarta - Yogyakarta (no meals)

On arrival to the airport our driver will meet you and drop you to the hotel, where you can take a rest after the flight and prepare for a very interesting program in Yogyakarta. This day tour, guided by our professional guide, begins with a visit to one of the world's largest Hindu temples - Prambanan, built in the IX century. This stunning temple complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, hosting 224 shrines, is one of the largest in Southeast Asia. The main three temples of Prambanan are dedicated to Shiva (the destroyer / transformer), Vishnu (the preserver) and Brahma (the creator). Your next destination is the world's largest Buddhist Temple and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site - Borobudur Temple, this was built in the IX century. The Borobudur Temple Compound is an example of Indonesia’s finest art and architecture and consists of three monuments - the Borobudur Temple and two smaller temples located to the east on a straight axis to Borobudur - Mendut and Pawon. All of them together represent phases in the attainment of Nirvana.

Day 2. Plateau Dieng - Sikidang crater - Temple complex Arjuna - Colorful lake (B,L)

Today we will show you another "must see" destination called Plateau Dieng. The name "Dieng" comes from "Di Hyang" which means "Abode of the Gods". It appears as a very beautiful volcanic landscape, sulphurous springs and breathtaking colored lakes that make this place a fascinating natural wonder. Experiencing this wonder and beauty will make you understand why the ancient Javanese people considered Plateau Dieng as the seat of supernatural powers. Even driving with our guide to the plateau you will experience some amazing sights, jaw dropping scenery as well as refreshing tea and coffee plantations.

Crater Sikidang is a very hot spring with a bubbling mud inside. You can walk all around the crater (using the facemask) and see it up close and personal, witnessing the bubbling mud boiling away. There is a wooden fence around the crater so you can observe this awesome act of nature in safety. Another place that you will visit during the tour itinerary is the Arjuna Temple Complex - one of the oldest temples in Java. It consists of 5 temples inside the complex and 4 more temples standing apart. All of them were built at the end of the XII century. In fact these 9 temples are the only ones that remain from around 400 temples, built long ago by the people of the Kalingga Kingdom under the reign of Sanjaya Dynasty. The last place of visit on this day will be a Colourful lake that changes colour tones from red and green to blue, white and even mauve. The atmosphere around the lake is calm, quiet and tranquil.
