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.

  • Time the rain there so cool really. Free entry ticket only pay parking only. When fitting the season many yg selling Durian Durian because there indeed is famous for producing area of duren. There is a small lake above the Hill. Many of the fish. Simply pay 2000 klo want to come love eating fish.

  • 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.
