Stop At: Borobudur Temple

Drive from the city of Yogyakarta to reach Kulon Progo, the meeting point where you will enjoy a rafting experience down the Progo River for about two to three hours. This river is ideal for rafting because it has a stable stream. After a short break and a nice lunch in a local restaurant, we will enter the Borobudur, a UNESCO Heritage Site, and spend time discovering the meanings of this impressive and well conserved monument with its carvings and ancient kingdom stories inlaid in its stones. Looming out of a patchwork of bottle-green rice paddies and swaying palm tops, this colossal Buddhist relic is one of the continent’s marvels. After the decline of Buddhism and the shift of power to East Java, the monument was abandoned soon after its completion. For centuries the complex lay forgotten, buried under layers of volcanic ash. Climb up to the top and enjoy a wonderful view on the surroundings. Enough time is given to stroll around the complex and to discover its beauty.
