After breakfast and at the indicated time we will tour around the heart of this cultural city as well as the magnificent temples.

Yogyakarta City Tour

We will visit the Keraton known as the Sultan Palace. The palace is a complex building of two centuries old, located in the heart of the city. You will listen to the song of the “freedom” of the birds in the bird market, we will visit the Water Castle which occupies the highest part at the northern end of the vast complex of Taman Sari. Also, visit Malioboro Street with its merchants, horse carts, tricycle taxis and markets

Borobudur Temple

Afterwards, we drive to Magelang district to visit the Borobudur temple. It is 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 that, you will continue the trip to Mendut and Pawon temple.

Prambanan Temple

Lastly, we will go towards Prambanan Temple, the temple of Hinduists and classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1991. This temple was completed around the year 856 to commemorate the return of Shailendra dynasty of Central Java. Take your time to enjoy each carving on the rocks and feel the spirituality that each of the perched stones gives off in this set of more than 200 Hinduist smaller temples. They are dedicated to the Trimurti, the expression of God as the Creator, the Preserver and the destroyer. After this day that you will never forget, we will take you back to your hotel.

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.

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 Bali. It takes about 4 hours to reach the Ketapang port to cross to Bali, but then it can be 1 to 4 hours more to reach your accommodation in Bali. 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.

This concludes our Java Bali overland tour. Thank you for marching your footprints in this land with Come2Indonesia. Sampai jumpa!
