Adventure Travel in Indonesia:- Volcanoes and Dragons (16 Days)

Code:- Nuetzel

Day 01: Arrival Transfer Jogjakarta

Upon arrival at Yogyakarta, picked up at the Adi Sucipto airport of Yogyakarta and transferred to hotel. Be at leisure for the rest of today. Dinner will be at the hotel.
Meals included : Dinner
Accommodation : The Phoenix (Deluxe Legacy)

Day 02: Royal City & Borobudur Temple

Begin your tour of Yogyakarta with a visit to the Sultan’s Palace, which is also known as the Kraton. The innermost group of buildings (where the sultan still resides) were built in 1755. As you pass through the Palace, be sure to note the ornate reception halls as well as the large Pendopos (open-air pavilion built on columns) that was erected specifically so that the sovereign could listen to private performances of gamelan (traditional ensemble) music.

Other points of note include the museum-like room containing the desk at which the ninth sultan planned the overthrow of the Dutch colonialists and the ornate ‘his’ and ‘hers’ entrances that are decorated with huge male and female dragons. Located within the grounds of the Kraton, the Taman Sari, often referred to by its old Dutch name of Waterkasteel (Water Castle), was designed in the mid-18th century as a royal pleasure park for the first Sultanate of Yogyakarta and his entourage/harem. It is said that the sultan would sit in the tower overlooking the now restored central bathing complex watching the goings-on below while being entertained by his wives.

The final stop this morning is the city district of Kota Gede. Famed for its silver crafting, there will be time to witness a demonstration of this ancient skill at a local workshop as well as delve into the backstreets of this historic neighbourhood where more craft showrooms and interesting buildings await.

This afternoon head approximately 40km out of Yogyakarta to the stunning temple complex at Borobudur, one of South East Asia’s most impressive sites and the largest single Buddhist monument in the world. Receiving UNESCO World Heritage status in 1991, the monument consists of six square terraces topped by three circular ones. Two million stone blocks were required to build the temple and with at least 2,500 relief panels and more than 500 Buddha statues, it is exquisite beyond comparison. Ample time will be dedicated to exploring this incredible Buddhist structure before heading back to the city.
