DAY 6 – BOROBUDUR

Borobudur is a Buddhist temple built sometime between AD750-850 by the rulers of the Sailendra dynasty, it is situated on a forested plateau surrounded by dramatic volcanic peaks, including the highly active Gunung Merapi. The best time to visit the temple is at sunrise which is when you will go, and watch the sun rise majestically from in between the two volcanic peaks that tower over the eastern horizon. While the major attraction is the temple itself, the light that the rising sun brings to the stunning surroundings is worth the early wake-up call.

DAY 7 – YOGYAKARTA

Drive to the historic city of Yogyakarta and visit the tenth century Prambanan temple. While it has not yet been fully restored, it is undoubtedly a magnificent piece of architecture and the sculptures and reliefs on the main Shiva temple are amongst the best examples of Hindu art to be found. The best time to visit the temple is at sunset, when you can climb one of the eastern temples and watch as the sun sets in between the three largest temples to the west.
