Full description
Be picked up from your hotel and head to the Borobudur temple which is the largest single Buddhist monument in the Southern Hemisphere. The journey will take about 1.5 hours and you can choose  to go at either sunrise or sunset for a truly enlightening experience. 

For the sunrise tour, leave at dawn when the air is fresh and as the mist begins to lift, the sun will surround the volcanoes and terraced fields, highlighting the stone reliefs and the many faces of Buddha.

For the sunset tour, you will leave in the afternoon. Entering the temple after closing time means that you will have the temple mostly to yourself as you will enter the temple. During this time you will feel how the atmosphere becomes serene, peaceful and quiet while witnessing the sunset from this magical temple.

After this trip, your friendly driver will take you back to your hotel in Yogyakarta.
