This tour was amazing. It was incredible seeing the rice terraces and the local community working there. It really is stunning, we even got to see eagles flying around. The temple itself is nice but unfortunately it has been vandalized however the scenery makes up for it. Our guide Praja was also great and provided us with interesting information about the area

One word : amazing ! Our guide Praja was so friendly and tought us more during this visit than we read for one month preparing our trip. The sunrise on Setumbu hill is breathtaking, and the visit of Selogriyo village, paddy fields and temple was a magical moment full of new understandings of javanese culture. Thank you very much ! We now want to come back to Yogya !

Beautiful area about a scenic 2 hours drive from Yogyakarta. Locals are friendly and have installed paths and viewing platforms for visitors from the entry funds. Consider giving an extra donation for them to continue the great work. The temple itself is small but this tour is about the amazing views along the 30 minute hike up to the temple from the village. The walk is steep and slippery in some parts so have good hiking shoes. My guide was very knowledgeable and had good relationships with the locals villagers.
