Embung Nglanggeran, Gunung Kidul

4.2
#9 of 14 in Parks in Gunung Kidul
Mountain Water Body
Get a perfect view of an ancient volcano from atop Embung Nglanggeran, an artificial reservoir. Climb the stairs up to the site (careful, they can get slippery when wet), and take a stroll around the water. You'll have views on all sides of the lush mountain scenery--including some of the best views over Nglanggeran Volcano, one of the must-see places in Yogyakarta. Sunrise and sunset, with optimal lighting and cooler weather, prove the most popular times to visit the reservoir, especially for photographers.

  • Beauty spot for photography. especially to catch a sunset panorama. you can also get a picture of the wonderful ancient mountain that facing west from the parking area.
  • The first thing I wanna explain is the view, u got the water lake view and the ancient cliff as the background, better u're not going on 12 am, the sun is quite hot for u to enjoy and look around the place, there is also the building which serve cocoa product and u can buy some. U can also see hydroponics system and green house there.
  • At the time of my writing, this is the best place in Yogya to visit. But few people go there make it even more interesting and enjoyable. The ancient cliff is superb. You won't believe it in Java. One of a kind. I have seen similar thing in Sulawesi, Kalimantan and Sumatra, but not in Java. The embung is a bonus.The setting instead is more photogenic. Facility is good and directions are helpful
  • The view of the landscape is amazing and stunning, great places to see sunset. Near there also have a building called TTP (Taman Teknologi Pertanian) that sell product based on cocoa. the local farmer produce the cocoa bean then bring to TTP for advance processing.
  • Really nice landscape. You can big pond's for irrigation. You must try sunset here. Very beautiful 👍👍👍
