Be picked up from your hotel and head to Setumbu Hill to witness the breathtaking Borobudur sunrise. When the air is fresh and as the mist begins to lift, the sun will surround the volcanoes and terraced fields.

After sunrise, explore the UNESCO-listed Borobudur Temple, the single largest Buddhist structure on earth. Be the first of the day to enter the gates as they open.

After visiting Borobudur, you will travel for 1.5 - 2 hours to Prambanan Temple. Spend 2 hours exploring Prambanan. This temple was built in the tenth century, this is the largest temple compound dedicated to Shiva in Indonesia.

Precisely on time, our driver, Dedhy, arrived in front of the hotel. Of we went to see the Borobudur sunset. Because of the rain, he stopped to buy us a poncho. Also he arranged the guides that were promised, but not delivered. Also he was very helpful in arranging train tickets for our next stop. Dedhy thanks for this memorable day!

I had a wonderful day. Indrah is an amazing tour guide, he’s so smart and knows so much about the history and nature of Jogja. I learned so much about Yogyakarta and Java. We stopped at one point to smell eucalyptus. The guides at Borobudur and Prambanan were wonderful too. I learned so much about the history and architecture of the area. Definitely book this tour if you’re in the Jogja area
