This temple was completed around the year 856 to commemorate the return of Shailendra dynasty of central Java.

Malioboro Street, main street of Yogyakarta, with its merchants, horse carts, bicycle taxis and markets. An incredible experience that will make the hours fly by.

We continue your route to the Borobudur Temple (Candi Borobudur) the great Stupa, the largest Buddhist monument in the world and one of the seven wonders. We will tour the temple, observing the hundreds and centuries-old Buddha statues and observing how dozens of Buddhists come to preach from all over the world. Historically it was made during the relatively brief Shailendra dynasty of Central Java between 778 and 856 BC and is under constant restoration due to the breaks that the tremors of the neighboring Merapi volcano have produced during its history.

After visiting one of the most important Buddhist temples in Asia, we continue our journey of about two hours to the city of Semarang. Check in at the hotel. Free time to rest, stroll and continue to soak up the Javanese culture, one of the most deeply rooted in Indonesia.

DAY 4:SEMARANG – PANGKALAN BUN – KUMAI – TANJUNG HARAPAN       ▼

After breakfast, at the appointed time the hotel’s driver will take you to the airport to catch your flight to Pangkalan Bun, Borneo. Upon arrival in Pangkalan Bun, your guide will transfer you to the port of Kumai in about 15-20 minutes by car where you will board our traditional wooden boat called a klotok. Once everything is ready, the cruise upstream starts on the famous Sekonyer river abroad the klotok.

If your flight arrives early (before 12 PM), we can arrive on time at the Tanjung Harapan rehabilitation centre. There at 3 in the afternoon, the orangutans are fed by the rangers of the national park and you can have the first close encounters with them. The literal translation of Tanjung Harapan is Cape of Hope. This first camp has more wetlands and therefore has more mosquitoes in the afternoon. Make sure you put on enough mosquito repellent. After visiting this camp, you will continue your journey upriver resting on the boat while observing animals in the sides of Sekonyer River.

In the afternoon it is very common to see groups of proboscis monkey and macaques in the treetops, jumping from one tree branch to another. Also, see if you can find crocodiles or lizards in the shallow waters on the sides of the river. Prepare for the sunset and enjoy the exquisite food prepared by our jungle crew. The boat is moored on the side of the river to spend the night.

Optional: Tonight, we can take a walk through the jungle to look for nocturnal animals such as snakes and tarantulas. If we are lucky, we can find luminescent mushrooms or tarsier monkeys as well.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

AccommodationKlotok

DAY 5:PONDOK TANGGUY – CAMP LEAKEY       ▼

Today you will wake up with the sounds and the colours of the jungle. Without a doubt, you will never forget how you woke up on the river, surrounded by the overflowing nature.

Pondok Tangguy

After an extraordinary breakfast on board, we will arrive on time to visit Pondok Tangguy camp at the feeding time for animals (9AM).

Little by little, you will see how the treetops begin to move and then you will see the silhouettes of the orangutans gradually reaching the feeding platform. Tangguy was a release camp for young orangutans that had been rehabilitated. It prevented them from moving away due to lack of food and ending up outside the national park, with the following risks of falling into traps of settlers or palm oil plantations. After the orangutans begin to leave the camp, you will return to the klotok to continue further upstream. You will witness how the colour of the river changes and you will have the opportunity to see crocodiles and large monitor lizards, along with Gibbons and proboscis monkeys. Of course, you will enjoy your lunch in this lovely setting.

Camp Leakey

You will arrive at Camp Leakey, the old orangutan rehabilitation centre. It was founded in 1971, when a student from UCLA University in Los Angeles named Birutte Galdikas, began studying the orangutans there. The name Camp Leakey came from Birutte’s own professor, paleo-anthropologist Louis Leakey. At least 200 orangutans have already been cured and returned to the jungle thanks to this centre. However, since 1995 the Indonesian government banned the introduction of more orangutans in this camp, so the orangutans are increasingly adapting to freedom. Today, this camp is used for behavioural and feeding research for orangutans. You can also visit the small museum built by the scientist Dr. Birutte Galdikas.

After finishing the observing of orangutans in this camp, we will do a gentle trekking through the jungle back to the boat to search for free orangutans and other animals, if the weather conditions permit. We will have the opportunity to learn a lot about the jungle from our local guides, of which some of them were born in the jungle. They’ll explain how to look for animals or plants, and you can listen to their experience of life in the jungle. The jungles of Borneo have given life and shelter to its inhabitants for million of years. They are jungles that under the watch of their ancestors are capable of fulfilling every single individual’s needs. Food, water, medicines, etc. But never throw anything in your mouth without your guide’s recommendation.

In the afternoon if it does not rain, the boat will be docked near a swarm of fireflies and you can enjoy the show of its luminescence.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

DAY 7:BROMO TOUR, THE DAWN – FUMAROLAS – IJEN       ▼

Very early, your guide and a jeep driver will be waiting for you at the hotel to witness one of the most spectacular sunrises in Indonesia. Even if you have to get up early, it will be worth it. In a jeep, we will go to the slopes of the volcano where after climbing some stairs you can get to the very edge of its crater and see the impressive activity it has.

You will go up to a high point first in the dark and, little by little, the first rays of sun give way to a huge and indescribable caldera that makes up the entire view of the Bromo and Semeru Natural Park.

Behind Bromo with its large fumaroles, is the Semeru Volcano with explosions almost every 20 minutes. Together will make you have one of the most rewarding experiences ever. We return to the hotel to refresh you and enjoy your breakfast.

At the agreed time, we will leave for our next destination, the Ijen volcano. This journey lasts about 7-8 hours by car but we will make a stop to eat. Take advantage of this journey to rest. Arriving in Ijen, we will drop you off at your hotel, check in and deserved rest.

DAY 8:IJEN TREKKING - BALI - UBUD       ▼

The day has finally come to visit one of the most attractive volcanoes in Indonesia! One of the last surviving open pit sulfur mines on the planet.

Ijen Crater

For this climb you can choose between two schedules. Either leave very early to see the blue fire (leave the hotel around 1.30am) or leave more calmly only for sunrise (around 4am). You can choose depending on how tired you are from the trip from Bromo to Ijen, you can decide the day before with your guide. Once we pick you up from your hotel, you will head towards the village of Licin to get to the side of the volcano to start the upward slope to the crater of the volcano itself. During this trekking, your guide will give you double filter masks to protect you from natural sulfur chemicals.

Once up, at an altitude of 2883 meters and when it begins to dawn, an incredible contrast of colors will open before your eyes. A scene of yellow earth and a large turquoise blue lake inside the crater that contrast with a suspended white cloud that is continuously expelling the volcano.

In turn, among so much beauty you will see the locals working where it is said to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. These miners go down to the crater of the volcano to load 80 to 100 kilos of sulfur on their shoulders and then sell it.

After this amazing experience on the edge of the Ijen volcano crater, we begin the descent with an incredible panoramic view of the mountains that make up the national park. We will take you to your hotel to cool off and have breakfast. 

Journey to Bali

Afterwards, we start the long journey to reach Ubud in Bali. It takes about 4 hours to reach the port to cross to Bali, but then in Bali it can be 2 to 3 hours more to reach Ubud. Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel for the deserved rest after so many hours traveling. You must remember to add an hour to your watch, because we change the time zone. Welcome to the island of the Gods.

DAY 9:BEDUGUL TOUR - TANAH LOT TEMPLE       ▼

After breakfast, your guide will pick you up and we will visit the places on the fantastic route of Come2Indonesia.

Taman Ayun Temple

The first site will be the Taman Ayun Temple (it was founded in the 17th century), located in the Mengwi Village. Until 1891, it was the seat of a powerful man who dates back to the Gelgel Dynasty, which is surrounded by a moat that looks like a sanctuary landscaped, which explains the term taman, or garden. The temple is a penyawangan or place to worship other sacred sites.

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

From Taman Ayun, the compass heads towards Jatiluwih, where without a doubt we will admire and enjoy a beautiful view of rice terraces that cover the entire landscape of South Bali. The name of Jatiluwih is made up of two words, Jati which means truly and Luwih which means beautiful, good, special. Without a doubt, this place not only has a beautiful name but that beauty is really reflected in its landscape.

Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

From Jatiluwih, we will go to Bedugul where we will visit the Ulun Danu Bratan Temple, the famous temple that stands in a small development located on the shore of Lake Beratan and has the beautiful landscape with the lake and the mountain as a backdrop. It is without a doubt one of the most photogenic temples in all of Indonesia. This temple is dedicated to Dewi Danu, goddess of waters.

Sunset at Tanah Lot

We will close the visit on this fantastic route and end the day watching the sunset at the most famous and photographed temple in Bali, the Pura Tanah Lot. Torn from the ground on a stone pedestal sculpted by the incoming tides, the lonely black towers of the Tanah Lot and the plumes of foliage shed by the cliffs recall the delicacy of Chinese painting. The Pura Tanah Lot or the Temple of Earth in the Middle of the Sea was built in the 16th century. Then we return to the hotel.
