See the wonderful scenery as the sun is going down.

Retno Wulandari   06 August 2016 15:52 - If you’re going to spend a weekend in Magelang or maybe Yogyakarta, consider catching the amazing sunrise in some beautiful spots near Borobudur Temple. Some spots are famous already and can be crowded, but the rest of them are less well-known and more secluded. Aside from the beautiful scenery as the sun goes up, those places also boast breath-taking views you won’t enjoy every day!

So if you happen to be anywhere near the biggest Buddhist temple in the world, rise before dawn, put a windbreaker on, and take your significant other for a romantic sunrise session! Check these ones out and don’t forget to pray for a sunny day:

As if floating on a cloud, shadows of the majestic Mount Merapi, Mount Merbabu, Mount Sumbing and its “sibling” Mount Sindoro become a background as the sun is dawning. Punthuk Kendil Gupakan nestled in the panoramic village of Giritengah, one of the roads less traveled near Borobudur.
