The Ancient Ruins of Dieng Plateau,
Info : The Ancient Ruins of Dieng Plateau
Spend the morning exploring the beautiful and haunting landscapes of the Dieng Plateau, Java’s mystical ‘Abode of the Gods’. Scattered with the remains of hundreds of ancient temples, these dramatic volcanic panoramas are home to glittering lakes, hillside villages and some of the most important archaeological remains in Central Java.
Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
