Feels truly magical in the pavillion on the peak overlooking the surounding mountains. Could be the sacred energy that makes it a pilgrimage site. Could be the giddiness after climbing the 290 steps. Or could simply be the crisp clean air. Go weekday early in the morning and have the whole peak to yourself! View depends on weather, can be... More

It took an hour plus to reach the place from Yogyakarta. It is high above, so the air is nice and fresh. Not many activities in the morning (I was there 5-7am to photo sunrise) nor food/drink to sell. The stairway to the top is quite steep not but not too long. The sunset view is better. From the peak... More

Suroloyo is a place where you could see basically everything from above, such as mountains, magelang city, rice terraces, etc. The road to suroloyo isn't very steep but you must still be cautious. Anyway this attraction site has an entrance fee, but because i go there early in the morning, so the guard on the entrance hasn't come yet, so... More

Suroloyo is not that famous but definitely a highlight in the Borobudur area. Already the drive to Suroloyo is a dive into the local scenery: we saw pigeon racing, local fishermen competitions with an incredible number of participants. The highlights, of course, are the breathtaking rice terraces at and around Suroloyo Peak..... just have a look, breath and enjoy!
