Day 01 | Yogyakarta | Mount Merapi | Off Road Jeep Tour | 20km
After you arrive at the airport of Yogyakarta in Central Java our team will transfer you by car to Kinahrejo village at the foot of Mount Merapi (1,5 hours). If you fly in this morning we recommend to arrive the latest at 09.00am so that you are able to do all the planned activities. If you are already in Yogyakarta we will come and pick you up around 08am.
From Kinahrejo village we will head out for an included 4x4 jeep ride (2 hours) around the Mount Merapi countryside. We will explore some of the villages damaged by the 2010 eruption and the lava fields. After our jeep ride it is time to start cycling. We will cycle from Mount Merapi through beautiful villages and countryside and finish at Plaosan Temple which we will explore with our guide. From here we continue to the Prambanan Temple, our highlight of the day. Prambanan is the largest and - arguably - the most beautiful Hindu temple complex in Indonesia and the masterpiece of Hindu culture of the ninth century. After we transfer to our beautiful accommodation where we will be for the next two nights. The evening is at leisure. (L)
Day 02 | Yogyakarta | Borobudur Sunrise | 25km
In the very early morning (3.30am) we head out for an amazing sightseeing tour to the world heritage 8th century site of Borobudur. For the sunrise itself we will head to the Puthuk Setumbu viewpoint to see the temples from a different angle from around 450 meters altitude. Afterward we will visit an abandoned church that is strangely shaped as a chicken, sounds weird we know :) From here we will transfer to Borobudur for our included guided visit of the temple complex itself . This is one of world's truly great ancient monuments and the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth.
We will continue our journey by car to Suroloyo Peak where we will start the cycling part of the day. We will be on the bikes for about 3 hours in total and visit a beautiful waterfall, local villages and the amazing countryside along the way. The ride finishes at a famous local warung (restaurant) where we will enjoy lunch. After we transfer back to our accommodation. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure. (B L)
Day 03 | Yogyakarta | Explore the lesser known temples | 25km

From here we can transfer you back to your accommodation in Yogjakarta or drop you of at the airport.
