Visited this place during sunset and it was beautiful! The climb to the top of the water reservoir or "embung" was quite tiring with lots of stairs. Because we visited quite late in the afternoon... more »
Nothing special in this place. Just pool on the hills and you can see the sunset from here. Better for couples more »
Beautiful place, has great view. Suitable for person who likes to take photos. I don't suggest to go to this place when it's raining, since the fog will cover the views. This place is quiet far from Yogyakarta, but it's worth it to try.
Nice view, especially in the evening. You can see the sun sets here. It's kinda hot in the middle of the day, so I suggest you to bring your hat
Embung Nglanggeran is a water reservoir. No swimming, fishing, etc. Take a walk around the reservoir and enjoy the scenery. Entrance to this area is Rp. 10.000 p.p., parking Rp. 2.000. To see the reservoir you have to take a 105 steps stairs. Toilets available, western style and Indonesian style. Some warungs as well.
Nice sunset view from here. Enjoy the sunset, calm ambience, village scenery, relaxing moment after short hiking in Nglanggeran ancient volcano is the best experience here.
Great place to enjoy sunset, htm 10k per person and 5k for parking car. Huge parking area and cheap food stall. Need 5-10 minute hiking stairs. best time to visit at evening to see sunsets and stars. Good road to reach but bad road when exit.
