Dieng Plateau, Dieng

4.2
#1 of 165 in Parks in Central Java
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. Using our international travel planner, Dieng attractions like Dieng Plateau can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • On the way to the Dieng Plateau we made a short stop at an old temple complex, which is currently still in restoration and/or reconstruction. This is probably the reason why fewer Western tourists come by here. With our small tour group (4 adults, 3 kids) we were the attraction of the day for the Indonesians. Afterwards we went to the Dieng Plateau, which receives you already when you get off with the typical, haunting sulfur smell. You have to make your way to the hot springs through countless Touri-Nepp-Buden. Once there, it is quite exciting to experience the bubbling and steaming water. However, environmental protection is clearly not yet an issue here. This is particularly evident in the offered Moto-Cross laps in the plateau, which is mainly popular with local tourists. It is a pity, because in addition to nature, the atmosphere also suffers.

  • Perfect place to get vacation. The cool air makes our mind refresh and feel relax. The mountain scenery is more than beautiful. That's not boring place to invite your friends, couple, or family to have fun. I got there twice and I want more.
