Yogyakarta’s Prambanan
From A Saddle

More than just a temple, Yogyakarta’s Prambanan demands sustainable respect. Surrounded by
verdant sceneries of impeccable quality, hop on a bike and follow your cycling guide
is our recommendation. A blend of authenticity with a bit of fun pedal action.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Yogyakarta is the cultural hub of Indonesia, and you will quickly get to understand why.

Home to breathtaking temples and priceless architectural monuments, the atmosphere of Yogyakarta is partly because the Sultan of Yogyakarta empowers its inhabitants, being supportive and attracting Indonesians from all over the archipelago to experience and encounter the artistic and bustling life of the city.

Surrounding these temples is plenty to see, do and admire and even better when you’re cycling around the Prambanan Temple.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Yogyakarta’s Prambanan From A Saddle

07:30 - 12:30

We include a morning pick-up from your hotel in Yogyakarta, and a short drive will bring you to the main starting point of this great, half-day cycling experience. During a short safety briefing, your bicycle will be set for a comfortable 2.5-hour ride through the local landscape, following paths and roads where cars not always can reach. Cycling to explore is the name of the game here. The Prambanan Temple and its surroundings, Indonesia’s largest, and one of the most beautiful Hindu temple complexes in Indonesia are the star attractions. Built in the 9th century, today, after extensive restoration projects, only the three main venerable sanctuaries, and three of the slightly smaller complexes, are still standing.

With plenty of stops, your guide will tell you not only about the importance of the temple but also highlight what makes this region so unforgettable. You’ll gain a deep respect and understanding for farmers and local villagers on how they’re making a living by cultivating and traditionally irrigating the land, planting, tending and harvesting, often only done by hand. Children often play around the lands where the parents are tending to their crop that offers pleasant sceneries while you cycle around. A stop at the Boko Temple is included, complemented with amazing views await once you reach the top of the hill where coconut trees, rice paddy fields and the green lands dominate the landscape up to the horizon.

From the moment you sit comfortably on your bike saddle until we reach the final stop where you will be brought back to your hotel, we guarantee a slightly different perspective of seeing this Hindu marvel and its scenery when touring around by car.
