Combi / climbing tickets. Clarification needed

Can someone help clarify how ticketing for Borobodur / Prambanan works?

We want a combi ticket in 3 weeks time and it seems we can book this in advance online. The website requires a date but will only accept the start date and we've read that combi tickets are valid for 2 days. Is this still the case as we would like to visit Borobodur on the second day?

We would also like to purchase a climbing ticket for Borobodur to use with our combi ticket. These are released only 7 days in advance via a different website (https://ticketcandi.borobudurpark.com/en/tickets?cat=foreigner)  Am I right in assuming we buy this later when the date is open and then use both tickets for access and to climb?

There is also a variety of climbing tickets for sale on this website for the same price but with different names eg. Kalyamitra, Bhumisambhara, Mandala, Caitya, Mahakarya. Mayana. What is the difference?

You cant currently but a combi ticket online that includes climbing Borobudur.

Best just to purchase a climbing ticket for B online and purchase an entry ticket for P on the day you wish to go.

Are you saying that the climbing ticket will gain you entrance to the temple grounds AND allow you to climb the temple? I thought you needed 2 tickets.

If 2 tickets are needed to enter and then climb Borobodur. then surely we could still purchase the combi ticket and benefit from the discount and simply buy the climbing ticket later when the slots are released for sale

Yes. Climbing ticket allows you to access the rest of the site after your climb for as long you want. You dont need two tickets

Ok, thanks. No point buying a combo ticket then. If we buy the climbing ticket online in advance does this mean we can enter at the alloted time without having to queue?

Also is it advisable to buy tickets for Prambanan at the gate or could we end up in a long queue? I'd rather minimise using the website as its all in Indonesian

Yes. Just show your online climbing ticket at the foreigners entrance (clearly signposted) and you'll be escorted past any queue. Just buy tickets at Prambanan, there was no queue when I visited at about 14:00

Tripadvisor staff removed this post because it did not meet Tripadvisor's forum posting guidelines with prohibiting self-promotional advertising or solicitation.

What are forum guidelines?

Hi,

Does anyone know why when I try to buy tickets for Borobudur I have two options (Kalyamitra or Bhumisambhara)? Does anyone know the difference between them? Thanks a lot in advance

The difference is the “theme” of the tour. Both tours cover the same area of the temple.
