Dedicated to the Hindu Trimurti and created during the reign of the Mataram Kingdom, The Prambanan temple is a must see when visiting Yogyakarta. Located on the out skirts of the city and easily accessible, this stunning historical site has a meaningful history and unique design.
The "Mountain of Fire" also known as Mount Merapi is Indonesia's most active volcano. Located on the island of Java this hike is intense but well worth it. Hiking Mount Merapi on your own is an easy thing to do and I had a blast on my solo hike.
Being Indonesia’s largest Buddhist temple, Borobudur is a must see when visiting Java. Located near Yogyakarta visiting Borobudur on your own is a great way to see and learn more about one of Indonesia's oldest cultures.
