Indonesia is well known not only for its ring of volcanoes, and the beautiful views these volcanoes have to offer. But did you know that Indonesia is also a place full of historical relics from hundreds of years ago? This special package take you to the most essential places of Java. We call this package the heartland of Java and Bali.
The trip will first bring you to central Java – Jogjakarta, regarded as the central culture of Java. You will find Hindu and Buddhist temples from long lost Javanese kingdom as early as the year 800’s. We will take you to see the amazing Borobudur temple, which to this date still amazes many archaeologists. One can only wonder how the sculptors during that era were able to produce such detailed and beautiful stone sculptures which is not easy to remake, even with today’s modern sculpting technologies.
Java is filled with exotic volcanoes. And yes, these volcanoes located thousands of meters above sea levels will give you the freshest air and amazing sceneries of nature. We will take you to four of Java’s most famous volcanoes: Mt. Bromo, Mt. Ijen, Mt. Batur and Dieng Plateau. Wake up early, as we will hike up to the very top. Walk through tropical rainforest, hear the animals, and the wind against the giant ferns. Smell the fresh mountain air. Watch the beautiful view from the top, and don’t forget to take picture.
The famous Mt. Ijen will give you the opportunity to see what the famous blue-flame is all about. Your trip to Mt. Bromo will be a mix of amazing sunrise, a wild jeep ride through the sea of sand, and a pony ride to the bottom of Mt. Bromo. To get to the top, you will have to climb 246 steps, we are confident the trip will be fun and quite an experience in itself. Mt. Batur on the other hand, is located in Bali and has been recognized as a member of the Global Geopark Network for its unique geology and grand scenery.
