Dieng Plateau, Dieng

3.9
#1 of 140 in Parks in Central Java
Explore the swampy, volcanic landscape of Dieng Plateau, home to vivid mineral lakes, bubbling pools, plumes of sulfurous steam, and some of the oldest Hindu architecture on Java. Formed from a vast caldera--a basin created by a collapsed volcano--the plateau's lofty elevation and tempestuous geography earned it the name "abode of the gods." An estimated 400 temples once filled the valley; today only eight remain--tiny, squat buildings with pyramid roofs, dating from the 7th or 8th century. You can visit the plateau without a guide, but this requires quite a bit of research beforehand, so definitely consider taking one. In the afternoon mists roll in, so try to get an early start for sightseeing. Using our international travel planner, Dieng attractions like Dieng Plateau can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • One regret: not having planned enough time on-site. I thought that a day would be enough but I regret not having given more time. The road is lined with hills where terracing overlap. Superb. The temples are simple but in a lovely setting. The lakes are beautiful and sikidang site worth a visit. My regret THC: the ground is strewn with garbage everywhere. I prefer the entrance money and pay toilets are used to clean up the site rather than extension of positions at seflies.
