JOGJAKARTA AND BEYOND

CJ - 07

If there is a question of what makes Jogjakarta so unique that more and more holiday makers dreaming of visiting the city, the answer is as simple as the charm of Asia’s most majestic Buddha and Hindu heritages – Borobudur and Prambanan temple. The answer is completely correct. But poorly only for unfortunate people.

 

Jogjakarta and Beyond tour package is designed for those inquiring the secret of Jogjakarta other than its culture and historical relics. This hand-crafted package invites you to ditch the city’s comfort zone. Moving away from its tranquil temples and avoiding the bustling shopping center in Malioboro. So, where are we heading for? Paradise hidden deep in the jungle of Gunung Kidul and Java’s deadly volcano, mount Merapi.

 

Full of challenge may become the impression offered by the the package even at the very beginning. Your bravery will be questioned as you must explore Jomblang cave which is located under the ground. You’ll instantly feel your adrenaline pumped up because it’s only a stretch of rope that helps you cradle down the 80 meter-depth vertical cave. But as soon as you set your feet on the base, “The Light of Heaven” will definitely awe you.

 

Is Jomblang cave too much extreme to you? Having fun time in Pindul cave will be the best choice. You’ll surely scream a lot as you walk through the cave. But it’s not the scream in fear but in excitement. There is a fresh greenish underwater river flowing along the cave’s pathway. And to cross it, you’ll sway on a tub while sightseeing the spectacular interior of the cave.

 

Jogjakarta has risen from its fall after the disastrous eruption of mount Merapi back in March 2014. At that time, lava and hot cloud swept away most of the farms and villages. Time goes by, but the memory of the disaster keeps evoking horror. During Merapi Lava tour, you’ll be taken to the slope of Merapi where you’ll discover leftover of the chaos: animal corpses, ruins of houses and countless burnt furniture.
