Very historical, nice place to watch the sunset too. Great place for workout too, have to climb so many stairs to reach the top level. Nice place to take pics and get a guide so that you can know more about the temple. Had a very pleasant guide (Pras) who was very knowledgeable and patient. He even helped us to... More

Literally taking my breath away coz there are lots and lots of stairs. I am not a fit person, so I find it challenging to climb up the temple. If you are wheelchair bound or have knee problem, you need to really consider taking up the stairs. But freet not, you can still take a stroll or cycle around the... More

I travelled by scooter from Yogyakarta to the site on a good condition and not too conjested ( for Java ) road. It took just under an hour. There are lots of places before the main enterance offering parking for 5000 which i think is half what the main area costs. I arrived at 640am and there was noone in... More

Borobodur temple was one of the highlights of our stay in yogjar. It's was done on a combined tour with another temple. Borobodur was for sure sure with seeing, but very difficult to see without the crowds. The good side if that is that you need absolutely no gear to enjoy it. The only thing that keeps me from putting... More

Borobudur is worth a 3 ++ hour drive from Semarang. With luck your can see Mt. Merapi (an active volcano) in the background. It's technically a stupa as there is no interior. You climb from terrace to terrace, before reaching the uppermost The 10th which is about 300 meters above sea level ( not to worry... it's built on a... More

Amazing temple with breathtaking sculptures. Not a good place if you want to bring old people as the steps up are really steep and some are broken. The view when you reach the top is just absolutely amazing. I thought I was going to faint as the weather was really hot. They do have a tour for sunrise.

I think it was a great visit. The temple has so many relics and there was story about it. Really a worth visit but prepare yourself. It was really tiring to climb up and the sun was really hot. Avoid midday and apply sunblock beforehand.

This place is spectacular! Going there was a life dream. We left Jogja at 3.45am and caught the sunrise at "the hill" for 3000 rp (a much cheaper alternative to the sunrise at the temple). And we were at the temple at 6.30am. At this hour it was still mostly empty and a lot cooler in temperature than if we... More

The sunrise ticket that goes through the manohara hotel at about 4.30am is expensive at 450k idr. Even then there were a lot of people when i went on last january 4th, but this is still way less than when the crowds swarm in at like 7am. Go to the top first and watch the sunrise, the mountains and enjoy... More
