Puncak Sikunir has an altitude of 2300 meters above sea level offering a beautiful view of the eight surrounding mountains that can be seen from the top of the hill.

So Puncak Sikunir became an inseparable part of the Dieng Plateau. it’s not complete if you go to Dieng without going to Puncak Sikunir.

Dieng Plateau or Dieng Highland is a giant volcano with many active craters and one of them is the Sikidang crater.

The name of the crater is Sikidang which has the meaning in English is Deer.

Why is this crater given the name the Deer? According to the myth, the crater always moves or jumps.

and again according to the story, this crater always moved once every four years. this makes the crater interesting to visit

4. The Dieng Temple is an area of temple in the highlands and the oldest Hindu temple in Indonesia.

Besides Puncak Sikunir and Talaga Warna, Dieng Plateau also has a temple area at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level.

Dieng temple is an area of Hindu Shiva, and the names of each temple use puppets.

The names of each of the temples are Arjuna, Semar, SriKandi, Puntadewa, and Gatot Kaca.

Based on the inscriptions found at the Dieng Site, these temples are thought to have been founded in the VIII-XII century AD.

The temples in Dieng Plateau have general characteristics which are square. have three parts of the temple ( feet, body, and roof ).

But there is one exception only in Semar temple because it has a rectangular floor.

5. The Prau Mountain Waiting for the Rising of the Golden Sun from East

Mount Prau is located in the Dieng Plateau area. with an altitude of 2565 meters above sea level.

The climbing route is relatively easy and clear enough for the climbers and also has a special view. Mount Prau is one of the favorite mountains for climbers.

To climb the summit of Mount Prau you just need about 3-to 4 hours of trekking. So easy isn’t right?

Two climbing routes are favorites for climbers.those routes are Dieng and Patak Banteng.

The Dieng route tends to be more relaxed and not too dangerous than the Patak Banteng route but it takes a little bit longer than if you go through Patak Banteng.

From the top of Mount Prau, you can see and enjoy the beautiful views the Teletubbies Hill and very charming flowers.

And also from the top of the Mount, you can see the beauty of the range of Mount Sumbing, Sindoro, Merapi, Merbabu, and Mount Slamet.

The peak of Mount Prau is often used as the place for climbers to seek the golden sunrise because the spot is very strategic and perfect for making a beautiful picture from any angle.

You will amaze your friends with the picture that you make in Mount Prau :))

There are other tourist spots that you can visit but considering your limited time. So I think that place is enough.

Maybe you can spend 2-3 days in Dieng Plateau before you continue your trip to Yogyakarta.
