Punthuk Setumbu, Magelang
(4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Punthuk Setumbu bisa jadi alternatif tempat melihat sunrise, sangat indah karena dari sini kita bisa melihat mahkota pada Gereja Burung dan terlihat lansekap yang menampilkan Candi Borobudur. 
  • Sunrisenya bagus banget..ditambah kabut gitu lagi.. bisa pas diatas siluet borobudur.. kereen banget 
  • This is an alternative to sunrise at Borobudur, it is cheaper and less commercialised. A great sunrise spot as you get to see Merapi, Merbabu as well as Borobudur Temple as the sun rises. A bit of a w...  more »

  • A mere 300 meter climb, a spectacular view. Worth the visit. If you are here and standing at the first row, using a selfie stick, please be considerate, as the other scenery admirer behind you will have no chance to take a nice photo due to your handheld obstacle. And please, if you really need to puff, please direct your smoke upwards.
  • What the best thing is that this place is run by community. Very beautiful views also. A shortcut also available to nearby Gereja Ayam.
  • A very nice place to see the sunrise with the view of Borobudur temple with Merapi and Merbabu mountains as backgroud
  • This spot is one of the best place to have a nice Borobudur photo from distance. The ticket entrance is very affordable. After enjoying sunrise here, you can come to Borobudur, early morning view is the best!
  • With a short steep walk to the top, the view is probably one of the most breathtaking views of Borobudur ever. Make sure to come early in the morning before sunrise. We can also walk to "Gereja Ayam" (Chicken Church) from there.
