Hello guys our destination this time is the Dieng plateau in the Wonosobo area
Have you ever heard of this name?
Dieng is very popular with the Indonesian people, especially those who live in the province of Central Java and its surroundings
why is this place so popular?
because this place is not only very beautiful but also saves the history and mystique of the land of Java

Where is the Dieng Plateau ?
Dieng is actually the name of a small village in Wonosobo district, Central Java
The distance from the city of Yogyakarta to the Dieng plateau is about 120 km and can be reached in about 3 hours
Oh yes, why is it called the Dieng Plateau? because it is located very high, so it is called the land above the clouds
Dieng plateau history
The name Dieng itself according to the local community’s mythology comes from the words Die and Hyang which mean Beautiful and Rare
Die itself also has a meaning as a peak or a mountain or a high place and beautiful
while Hyang is a word in Sanskrit that indicates something supernatural or mystical
Dieng is located at an altitude of about 2100-2200 meters above sea level and is surrounded by several mountains
Dieng is also famous as a producer of vegetables and fruits because of its fertile soil
When is the best time to visit Dieng
I think the best time to visit Dieng is in the dry season
because at that time the air temperature in the Dieng area decreases
So that it can reach 5 degrees, the air is very cold and even the grass can be white because it is covered by grains of ice.
And because it is covered with ice and becomes white, it makes tourist spots in Dieng even more beautiful
What are the tourist attractions in Dieng?
there are many tourist attractions in Dieng
But because we will only visit them in one day then I will only inform the famous destinations that are close to each other
The Sikunir Hill
The first is that we will see the sunrise from Sikunir Peak.
The peak of this Sikunir is a kind of very high hill, people at dawn flock to this hill to see the sunrise.
you will be very happy when you reach the top of Sikunir and see the sunrise
because the scenery is very beautiful even you can see and feel your position as if you are above the clouds
You can see the clouds clear and as if their position is below you

Telaga Warna lake
After coming down from Sikunir Hill, you will rest for a while
And then continue your journey to the next destination, namely Lake Talaga Warna
This lake is actually not too big but beautiful.
Talaga Warna is admired by many tourists because it can be a photo-taking spot.
Especially since there is a small bridge on the edge of the lake, it becomes a beautiful photo spot.

After enjoying the beauty of Talaga Warna and taking beautiful photos, now we head to Arjuna Temple
This temple is an ancient Hindu temple area
Around this Arjuna Temple, there are several other temples
There is also a museum that explains the history and events that happened in the past
In the dry season when the air temperature decreases and the weather becomes very cold, the grass around this temple is covered with ice
so that it becomes more beautiful
you have to take a photo and capture this event because it is very rare
The entrance fee is around IDR15.000
After being satisfied touring Arjuna Temple, we continue our program to Sikidang Crater.
This crater is located not far from Arjuna Temple and Telaga Warna
So we are not too tired and waste time reaching it
What will you see there?
Si Kidang’s crater is a former volcanic crater
You have to bring a mask because the sulfur smell is very strong
This crater is quite large and around it, many people sell food and souvenirs,
Especially sulfur which is said to be good for the skin
Batu Pandang Ratapan Angin

Best Time to go to Dieng
the best time to be able to visit Dieng in just one day is you have to set the departure time
You will depart from the city of Yogyakarta by driving a rental car
it costs around 300-400 thousand rupiah per 12 hours excluding gasoline and the driver
You start departing from the city of Yogyakarta at 12 o’clock at night.
Because the distance is about 2-3 hours, so when you arrive at the foot of Sikunir hill you can rest first
At 4 am you start climbing Sikunir hill
After enjoying the sunrise you go down
And then you can arrange your schedule according to your wishes
Then maybe around 3 pm you can return to the city of Yogyakarta
and rest at the hotel where you are staying
As additional information, the Dieng plateau is a producer of good quality vegetables and fruits
It is very famous for agriculture producing potatoes and other vegetables and fruits
So maybe you can buy some local products as a souvenir or something else
