Embung Nglanggeran, Gunung Kidul

4.2
#5 of 8 in Nature in Gunung Kidul
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.

  • Embung Nglanggeran is a place like a lake. It is very clean and windy over here. This place is comfortable for refresh your body after hard work in weekday
  • Instagramable, panoramic! New tourist attraction has been present in Yogyakarta, that is Embung Nglanggeran. Embung is a word used by Javanese to call the artificial lake. Embung Nglanggeran is an artificial lake whose main function is to irrigate orchards around the Ancient Volcano Nglanggeran. Besides as a source of irrigation, Embung Nglanggeran also functioned as a tourist attraction.
  • Beautiful place, great place for relaxing and enjoy your day. Great place to watch sunset.
  • Exotic place who look for the fresh air, good views for background foto.. And you can find sunset here.. Beautifully.. Amazing
  • Nice Place to enjoy fresh air and some cold morning breeze. Better carry a jacket around though.
