Dieng Plateau Golden Sunrise Tour
Get ready to pick up from your hotel in Yogyakarta at midnight. The trip to Dieng Plateau normally takes around 3 hours by car. Prepare yourself for hiking to Dieng Plateau sunrise viewpoint at the top of Sikunir Hill to enjoy the sunrise view and very fresh air. It takes approximately 20-30 minutes to hike. You can also see the view of 8 volcanoes from the hilltop, weather permitting. Continue this journey to Telaga Warna or colored lake through Batu Pandang Hill after watching the sunrise from Sikunir Hill. The lake literally has its multiple colors that can change in particular times. It could be green, turquoise, purple, yellow, and even reflecting the rainbow color! The lake contains high sulfur materials so when the sun rays intersect with the surface of the water, varied color reflections naturally appear. Next, head to Sikidang Crater where you can see a “smoky” pond with bubbling mud and steam. As you arrive there, you will smell the strong sulfur around the crater. Watch your step due to the bumpy tracks in crater area. It slightly offers the opposite nuance from the greenish feature of Dieng Plateau or Sikunir Hill, but it gives unique experience for your trip. You can feel like walking on Mars! And don’t forget to visit Arjuna Temple nearby. Feel the exotic ambiance of 8 ancient temples representing the ancient architecture of 7th century.
Watch the golden sunrise from Sikunir Hill. Feel the tranquil vibes from the natural landscape of the rice fields, verdant, and scenic view of villages on the hillside
