To visit Candi Cetho we booked a tour with Satu Dunia Tour and Travel, which also stopped at Kraton Surakarta in Solo and Candi Sukah as part of a monster day trip. The drive to Candi Cetho is steep and exciting, and provides wonderful views over the lush paddy fields that surround the mountain temple. The site itself, while small,... More

Quite long trip from Solo to reach the place, at least one hour from Solo. It is a small complex of the ruin temple laid in the high land Tawangmangu. You can stay at Tawangmangu and visit this place in the morning or afternoon. Worth to visit.

Do a day trip from Yogyakarta or Solo combine with Sukuh temple. The scenery coming up is beautiful and the temperature here is cool and refreshing.

The place is ancient one dating back to 16th Century. A place where you can trace the old culture, art & craft of ancient Indonesia hangning on the clif. a place worth visiting,full of natural beauty. Spiritualistic.

The temple is obviously Hindu paganism at its worst. I mean worshiping a male sex organ is so very idiotically stupid. If you like sex watch porn you idiots. So they still go there and touch the rocks and like incense to worship a sex god. Well any way someone thought is was so important that they build this temple... More

A charming small place well worth a visit. The trip through the mountains offered spectacular views through tea plantations and vegetable and rice terraces then all of a sudden, there is another ancient site. It is awesome to try and imagine how these beautiful places were built so long ago by sheer hard work and determination. We consider it a... More

Not an easy temple to get to. The drive from Solo took almost 2 hours, through some unbelievably narrow winding roads and very steep slopes. Makes me wonder how this temple was built centuries ago at such a high location in the absence of modern technology. Once on the temple grounds you will feel a spiritual atmosphere. Not a very...

A half hour journey through the tea plantations from Candi (Temple) Sukuh using a winding road into the clouds. Many visitors both tourists and those for spiritual reasons entered the temple. I had strong feeling of harmony with the fellow visitors from many countries. There was not this feeling of pressure and overcrowding despite the many visitors. Everything felt really... More

After visiting Candi Sukuh, Candi Cetho is my second scheduled one. The ride between two temples is less than thirty minutes . This Balinese-Hindu temple is high up in the mountain, so the scene is always covered with mist.The air is extremely fresh after a fall of rain, and the smell of grass is everywhere. On your way, you can... More
