Leisurely Cycling from Kaliadem to Prambanan - Full Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

Mixing a dose of local interaction with a touch of culture and an easy cycling ride, this Yogyakarta day tour adds up to a fun, unique excursion that is quite different from the normal tour package. Take a leisurely bike ride from the active volcano of Gunung Merapi, through small villages and countryside farms to the temple complex of Prambanan.

This morning around 0900 from your hotel in Yogyakarta (or 0800 from Amanjiwo) you will be picked up at your hotel and head for a village around merapi Volcano, the starting point for this Yogyakarta day trip. Located near Gunung Merapi about one hour from the city, the village offers magnificent views of this active volcano and the dozens of ravines which have been created by molten streams of lava. From this stunning village, and with Gunung Merapi as the backdrop, set off by bike on a 15km, mostly downhill ride. As you pass through the various villages and countryside you will have plenty of opportunities to stop for photos or chat to the locals. Your guide will also show you the locals engaged in various activities such as tobacco, rice and snake fruit plantations and explain the agriculture processes of growing and harvesting these native crops. After 15 km you will take lunch in a local restaurant where your hard work is rewarded with a magnificent view of Prambanan in the distance.

After lunch you will be driven to the huge Prambanan complex, a set of temples built in the middle of the 9th century, about 50 years after the construction of Borobudur. There is very little early history about the complex but it is thought to have been constructed to commemorate the return of a Hindu dynasty to Java. The temples lay in ruins for hundreds of years and it was only in the 1930s that reconstruction was started. Now most of the temples within the complex have been restored. Your guide will take you around the temple grounds explaining a bit about the history, building process and religious significance of these buildings. Following the tour, it will be time to transfer back to your hotel in Yogyakarta. (L)
