Spend the afternoon in the quaint blacksmiths’ village of Kotagede. Finish the day by visiting the impressive Prambanan temple complex. Immerse yourself in the local Javanese lifestyle as you spend the day in Candirejo village. Learn the traditional farming methods, the plantation resources and ceremonies. That afternoon, you will drive for 1 hour to the Magelang area near Borobudur and stay the night. Rise early to watch the sun rise above the beautiful Borobudur Temple. That afternoon, discover the volcano Merapi from the perfect viewpoint in Kaliadem. Enjoy the view of acres of rice paddies and small villages as we drive for 3 hours to Dieng. This plateau was sacred to the Javanese Hindus for its closeness to the heavens. Smell the contrastingly-sweet odors of tea leafs followed by tobacco leafs as we cross through their respective plantations. Spend your final morning relaxing at your hotel before checking out, and departing to check in for your return flight home.
