Explore the swampy, volcanic landscape of Dieng Plateau, home to vivid mineral lakes, bubbling pools, plumes of sulfurous steam, and some of the oldest Hindu architecture on Java. Formed from a vast caldera--a basin created by a collapsed volcano--the plateau's lofty elevation and tempestuous geography earned it the name "abode of the gods." An estimated 400 temples once filled the valley; today only eight remain--tiny, squat buildings with pyramid roofs, dating from the 7th or 8th century. You can visit the plateau without a guide, but this requires quite a bit of research beforehand, so definitely consider taking one. In the afternoon mists roll in, so try to get an early start for sightseeing.
