Watch the sunrise over the world’s largest Buddhist temple and visit a traditional village to try your hand at some activities with locals. At the UNESCO-listed Borobudur Temple, explore the vast complex before heading to Candirejo for insight into culinary and musical culture.
An early start is required to catch the world’s largest Buddhist temple at its best—at sunrise. At the Borobudur Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stroll around the huge grounds as the sun begins casting rays of early morning light. View scores of volcanic blocks decorated with splendid carvings forming a majestic sight.
A short trek through plantations leads to Watu Kendil, an excellent spot for panoramic views of the region including 5 volcanoes and the grand temple complex you explored. In the rural village of Candirejo catch a dokar, a horse and cart ride, to see where locals farm crops and dry produce such as vanilla and chili. At a lively market, watch the hive of activity as vendors jostle for trade and locals go about their daily business.
If you feel adventurous, try shinning up a coconut palm to harvest one of the fruits for a refreshing drink. You also have a chance to play the gamelan, a percussive instrument popular in the region. Try the intriguing teaching method that villages devised and then enjoy light refreshments before you return to Yogyakarta.
