Punthuk Setumbu, Magelang

4.1
Good for watching the sunrise over the Borubodur temple, the short climb up the steps to Punthuk Setumbu greets you with unmatched views of the surrounding vista. The walk up the stairs is comfortable for those of moderate fitness; it's about a 15- to 20-minute hike. It is entirely possible to tour to the hills on your own, but arranged tours are a good option for convenience. You can also rent a car or minivan to visit the site.

  • Please come about half to 5 a.m n make it sure it's not in the rainy season... wait n see the beautiful sunrise above Borobudur temple... amazing!
  • I hardly believe that this beautiful place exists in Java. But it does. Extremely beautiful. It is very advisable to reach this place BEFORE sunrise. It takes 10 minutes from the parking lot to the top. There, you can see Borobudur temple with the Mount Sumbing right behind it. And the sunrise.
  • I went there by bicycle. Of course we can go here by car or motorcycle. The people here will help you a lot. Give you a parking place for your bicycle. Give you information about this place or where to go from this place. After all, the best one is giving you warm smile. Punthuk Setumbuk is one of the high hill that we can see Borobudur Temple with beautiful sunrise. It is so awesome.
