Beautiful area about a scenic 2 hours drive from Yogyakarta. Locals are friendly and have installed paths and viewing platforms for visitors from the entry funds. Consider giving an extra donation for them to continue the great work. The temple itself is small but this tour is about the amazing views along the 30 minute hike up to the temple from the village. The walk is steep and slippery in some parts so have good hiking shoes. My guide was very knowledgeable and had good relationships with the locals villagers.

Bagus was our driver and tour guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the rice fields and how the process of producing rice works. Even though we came after the harvest and in the dry season, it was still a nice view! Our guide was patient and took lots of photos. He indulged us with our music and singing on the way back. Finally, he brought us to a batik factory and some shops because we asked for it. We couldn't have wished for a more enjoyable day!
