This August 2018 we are back to Yogyakarta, a town rich in cultures and adventures which has given us an extraordinary experience last year.
*** Changes in itineray due to Merapi Eruption, see below for details
Yogyakarta is one of the last regions headed by a monarchy in Indonesia. Boasting of a strong heritage and rich cultural background, it is considered the modern cultural centre of Central Java. A visit to the world's largest Buddhist temple, Borobudur, is not to be missed - especially the sunrise view.
There are nine rock sites in the Yogyakarta area which have been declared to be geoheritage sites. It is one of the most unique and diverse landscapes that can be encountered in the world today, taking visitors on a journey from sand dunes to prehistoric volcanoes.
Explore the deepest parts of the Earth with a visit to Jomblang cave. It is a vertical cave which is the home to a dense, ancient forest. Unlike any other destination, the Jomblang Cave offers a different kind of travelling experience. Its unique beauty will make you want to hold your breath in anticipation of what is to come.
Discover the natural wonders of an interconnecting underground alley that is filled with vines, stalactite, and stalagmite, while glittering emerald moss takes visitors to Luweg Grubug, a place where you can see light from heaven every day at 10am.
A trip to Yogyakarta would not be complete without a visit to Mt. Merapi. Be daring and conquer one of the most active stratovolcanoes in Indonesia. You will be amazed by its summit view overlooking Yogyakarta and the 4 brothers: Merbabu, Sumbing, Sindoro and Telomoyo.
