The Basics

Borobudur, built in the seventh and eighth centuries, consists of six square platforms decorated with more than 2,500 relief panels and some 500 Buddha statues, making it one of the most decorated temples on earth. Guided tours of the complex uncover the stories behind the imagery while giving visitors a better understanding of nirvana, karmic laws, and the life of Buddha. You can choose between intimate small-group tours, private tours, or combo tours that might include cycling through nearby villages, rafting on the Progo River, or visits to Pawon and Mendut Temples. If you have some extra time, opt for a two-day tour that includes a visit to Prambanan, a UNESCO-listed Hindu temple.

Borobudur Sunrise on Hill with Dieng Plateau Tour from Yogyakarta
Great driver, Dodo— safe and accommodating and good english. Note this does not include tour guide up Borobudur, that’s an extra INR 150,000. We Chose to no go to Dieng because of heavy rain, but if we had gone would have been 3:30am - 10pm, long day! Sunrise was nice, and Borobudur interesting, but post Covid no one is allowed up the temple like before. Driver Dodo took us to another temple and monastery with spectacular stone carvings near Borobudur. Overall good day despite the rain.
