Full description
Following pick-up from your hotel in Yogyakarta at midnight, the journey to Dieng Plateau will take about 3 hours by car. The hike to the Dieng Plateau sunrise viewpoint at the top of Sikunir Hill takes 20-30 minutes from the foot of the path that leads you to the top. On a clear day, you can see up to 8 volcanoes from the top of this hill. 

From the top of Sikunir Hill, you will head to Telaga Warna Lake via Batu Pandang Hill after the Dieng Plateau sunrise. Telaga Warna Lake, or ‘Colourful Lake’, contains water that can change in fluctuating colors. At times it can be green, purple, yellow or even taking the colors of the rainbow! This phenomenon occurs when the sun hits the water due to its high sulfur content.

From Telaga Warna Lake, you will next visit Sikidang Crater, which is an open sulfur crater with angry bubbling mud and bellowing steam. It’s set among a bumpy and dusty landscape that will make you feel like you arrived on another planet. Not far from the crater, you can also visit the Arjuna Temple Complex which houses eight small Hindu temples that date back to the seventh century.
