Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in the early morning and head to Setumbu Hill to witness breathtaking sunrise views. When the air is fresh and as the mist begins to lift the sun will surround the volcanoes and terraced fields. Explore the UNESCO listed Borobudur Temple, just 4 kilometers from Setumbu Hill. Be the first of the day to enter the gates as they open. Afterwards, travel to Dieng Plateau. Enjoy views along the way of rows of rice fields and picture-perfect villages clinging to terraced hillsides. Head to Telaga Warna Lake via Batu Pandang Hill. Telaga Warna Lake, or "Colorful Lake", contains water that changes color. At times it can be green, purple, yellow, or even all the colors of the rainbow. This phenomenon occurs when the sun hits the water due to its high sulfuric content. From Telaga Warna Lake, visit Sikidang Crater, an open sulfur crater with angry bubbling mud and bellowing steam. It’s set among a bumpy and dusty landscape that will make you feel as if you've arrived on another planet. Not far from the crater, you can also visit the Arjuna Temple Complex which houses 8 small Hindu temples that date back to the 7th century. After you have finished the trip, sit back and relax as your friendly driver escorts you back to your hotel in Yogyakarta.

The tour was nice. It was a long tour, but the driver/guide told a lot of interesting information about Indonesia as country and the places were we went. The sunset was amazing, the tour at the Temple provided a lot of information about Budism and the temple, and the Dieng Plateau was a great area. We had a stop at an coffee , and tabaco plantage and tried also the coffee and tabaco of the plantage. In summary: interesting/informational tour while visiting nice spots in Java
