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.

  • The best time to visit this place is at dawn, to see the sunrise with the nice breeze. I came to this place once at the afternoon when the sun shining and the weather is very hot.
  • Beautiful views. Stunning country side travelling there. A great day out. I hired motorbike and stopped along the way.
  • One of the most scenic area to do some photographs, sunrise or sunset. This is an artificial lake and made by human as reservoir at the top of the hilly area
  • The view is gorgeous on sunny day. It's quite and peaceful.
  • Amazing place... Wonderful scenery ... Good location for a little adventure ... Romantic lovely place ... Fresh for morning walks ... Fresh air ... . . Wonderful place for a family recreation near the city ... . . I suggest going here via Piyungan, through television relay stations complex to avoid traffic jam either morning or afternoon ... The road is rather climbing, but the scenery is better than through main Wonosari Street ... . . The road is in good condition, some lodges near the location ... . . Ticket are IDR 30k for foreigners, and for local travelers are IDR 10k (day), IDR 15k (night) plus parking fee
