Embung Nglanggeran, Gunung Kidul

(4.2/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Embung Nglanggeran and other attractions in Gunung Kidul using our Gunung Kidul vacation route planner.

  • The scenery over this place is all awesome! Even the access wasn't so good, but you can be there by motorcycle or car
  • I was at sunset to this mountain volcanic Lake ; the view of the valley is actually more breathtaking than the lake. I recommend the motorbike ride from Jogja to appreciate the wild and beautiful scenery.
  • Good place to see the sunrise, amazing view. But not easy to go there by car, small road and bumpy
  • You can watch the sunset from here! Also, hawkers are prohibited here. You can only find official hawkers, administered by local community.
  • Huge lake on a mountain with a exceptional scenery. To see sunrise or sunset from up there will be a great experience. 👍👍👍
