  • Stairs rise to the top of the mountain is quite steep and tiring. But once at the top, the view is very beautiful. There are archaeological sites on the top. It is said that the mountain is actually a hidden pyramid.

  • If one wants to visit a new different place, you can try to visit this and use trains as your transportation mode. The place is very serene, clean and quiet. Not much to see as a "pyramid" as the ston...  more »
  • In my opinion this site visitors should be limited so as not to threaten sustainability. Moreover, this site is very old age. I see too many visitors trampling with Justin stone. Friction with the pedestal shoes will certainly speed up the damage. Most of them visited also not because of interest in history (except maybe a group of students who are currently touring study) but rather because the only place it's been made into a mere tourist. Every weekend hundreds of thousands of people who come to visit per day. How great is the threat of damage will occur.

  • It's a magical place. Digging the story from the local guide and you'll be amazed. How can the place with the story of thousand years can be built? With hundreds of big stone arrange into certain levels high with the shape of pyramid. And the energy is awesome. On the top, the view is amazing. Surrounded by the mountains near the site
  • A mystical place, it may at first seem to look like a simple ancient ruins, but as you learn further about the area, you get to know the mysterious aura surrounding the place. How it was built? How were these ancient people able to cut stones that easily? How is that they are even able to develop such complex structures for such complex functions, such as for rituals and meditation? All these questions are answered when you ask the local guides there, yet they don't speak much English, so you must use Indonesian....
  • Have you heard & tried one of its singing menhir stone? Close your eyes & gently hits the stone in rhyme, you won't believe your ears that the sound comes from the stones :)
  • A megalitic site. Nice view. So many stone. Far enough from city center
  • The site is unique with megalithics stones. The site history is limited because it is being researched. The access road to the site is bumpy, you have to be patient.
