Know More about this tour

Front row sunrise seats are reserved when embarking on an early morning that offers jaw-dropping beauty, delivered by Mother Nature. The Borobudur is one of the most famous, Buddhist temples in the world. Mesmerizing moments await when your alarm is set for an early rise; dawn is slowly turning night into day and the Borobudur will stand proud, tall and right in the path of the rising sun. The back drop slowly emerges above the morning dew where extinct volcanoes and terraced rice fields appear out of nowhere.

For this spectacle, we will pick you up at around 3am from your hotel lobby for an hours drive to where the sun welcomes yet another day in the tranquil morning air. We first make a stop at Candi Rejo, a local town near the Borobudur where we first take a small break and where your trekking guide will explain the route you will follow this morning. As the new light of day breaks through the horizon, you will find yourself hiking and trekking through the surrounding rice fields, local villages that are just about to wake up for yet another day in paradise and the silhouettes of the famed volcanoes Merapi, Merbabu, Sindoro and Sumbing start to take shape. All this will be done to avoid the crowds and the Borobudur will almost be always in visual range.

Although bulky in size, the Borobudur has been the epitome of beauty after being rediscovered and the full history of 75 years of completion was revealed. Large deposits of mud and dust covered the main temple for decades before it was presented again to the public. The details of the carvings and images that are standing tall at one of the layers and a simply glimpse of this UNESCO-recognized complex is just a jaw-dropping experience one cannot miss.

After a local breakfast, continue your walk through more stunning landscapes, from viewpoints with panoramic views over the various volcanoes. Part of the morning will be done by dokar a traditional means of horse-drawn transportation. Life as it has been for many generations continues to be play an important part in the culture of these local residents. Traditional Javanese culture is still very prominent here, displayed through traditional houses, plantation resources, performing art, farming and local food. You may see the villagers going about their daily lives in the early morning. We return back to your Yogyakarta hotel at around 11am.
