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.

  • If you are in Indonesia are, then you should see the Sun on a time somewhere! This was a nice spot where the Borobudur slowly woke up from the fog. Of course, there is a short walk to advance before you get to the lookout. When I was there, it had been raining at night making it here and there a bit muddy and slippery, but they are busy with the building of a tiled path causing that "problem" should be solved quickly enough.

  • Good place, crowded even in weekdays. I can't get the sunrise since the cloud is very thick. Eventhough, the scenery is magnificent. Bring your best cam here. The climbing track is moderate, about 15-20 minutes at the average speed.
  • The best time to visit is before 5 a.m Parking fee Rp 5.000,- and entrance fee for domestic is Rp 15.000,- per person You will need extra energy to go there. A lot stairs, but well manage. There are several snack store along the road. Try it and you will enjoy.
  • Best place to hunt for sunrise in the early morning! Usually crowded for tourists especially during holiday or weekend time. A must visit tourist attraction in Yogyakarta! Tips: arrive here before 5.30AM!
  • Best spot for see the sunrise over Borobudur Temple. The road is small, but there are direction guides. From the parking lot, you need to climb stairs for 20-30 minutes.
  • The only reason I've been here, was "AADC2" MOVIE. Nice view. Walk around 15 minutes to the hill. Bring water, you will need that.
