DAY 3. Plateau Dieng - Sikidang crater - Temple complex Arjuna - Colorful lake (B,L)

Today, after filling your belly up with a good hearty breakfast, you will be taken to another highlight of Java Island. The next "must see" tourist destination is called Dieng Plateau. The name "Dieng" comes from "Di Hyang" which means "Abode of the Gods". Dieng Plateau is found in a beautiful volcanic landscape, home to sulfur springs and colored lakes. Exploring these lunar-like fairytale landscapes will make you understand why the ancient Javanese people considered Plateau Dieng to be a source of supernatural powers. You will be presented with facemasks as you reach Sikidang, a crater with hot mud bubbling inside. You can walk all around the crater which is quite an impressive thing to do.  Don’t worry, there is a wooden fence placed around the crater so you can observe this awesome natural phenomenon safely. Another interesting place you will visit today 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 from the complex. All of them were built in the late 12th century and these 9 temples are the only ones remaining from the 400 temples that were built here ages ago by the people of the Kalinga Kingdom under the reign of Sanjaya Dynasty. The next and last stop today is an enchanting lake that changes color tones from red and green to blue, white and even mauve. The atmosphere around the lake is calm, quiet and tranquil.
