    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup at your Yogyakarta hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle equipped with Wi-Fi. During the journey to Borobudur, your guide provides a historical overview of one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the world.

    On arrival at the UNESCO-listed temple, marvel at a sea of bells and Buddha statues as you clamber to Borobudur’s summit and enjoy panoramic vistas of the surrounding nature.

    Then, proceed to the Pawon and Mendut temples, important pilgrimage sites that attract thousands of Buddhists every year. Hear of their rich history before arriving at Mt Merapi, the most active volcano in Indonesia.

    Here, you’ll board a 4x4 vehicle and conquer the rugged terrain of Mt. Merapi’s lower slopes. Marvel at its smoking summit. Please note, the jeep ride is at your own expense.

    When hunger strikes, you’ll have the option to revitalize with lunch before your final stop — Prambanan. As you stroll among spectacular Hindu temples, witness an enchanting sunset that enhances the beauty of the UNESCO-listed site.

    The tour concludes with a drop-off back at your Yogyakarta hotel.
