Dieng Plateau Reviews
A combination of beautiful landscapes and the site of the oldest Hindu a temple in Java,makes this a worthwhile trip. Jul 17, 2013
I hired a car and driver from Borobudur to take me to Dieng Plateau for the day.It is around 80klms,however the road is winding,with a number of logging trucks,and in fact ten kilometres from the Plateau there was a landslide,so I continued on on the back of a motorbike to the temples,with instructions from my driver where to take me.
We skirted the landslide on a small track and soon came across the Temples.Not nearly as inspiring as Borobudur,these small temples were thought to have been built around the same time as Borobudur.There are five temples on this site.
Next stop was Telaga Warna,a lake of interesting blue green colour,caused by sulphur.
Onto Kawah Sikidang,a volcanic crater with angry bubbling mud ponds .
The views down to Dieng township are spectacular showing that the whole area is a huge food bowl .
Well worth a day trip !!
