Sunrise in Jogja

Punthuk Setumbu

Punthuk Setumbu was originally famous among photographers as a place to hunt for sunrise photos. However, to take clear photos of the Borobudur temple from this place, a long lens is needed. Usually, photographers use a 400mm lens.

The Punthuk Setumbu ticket price for foreign tourists is IDR 30,000. Tickets go on sale at 03.00 am. Because the distance is quite close to Borobudur Temple, after enjoying the sunrise from Punthuk Setumbu, visitors usually continue their tour to Borobudur Temple.

Mangunan Peak

Another option for enjoying the sunrise in Jogja is Puncak Mangunan or Mangunan Peak. From the top of Mangunan, visitors can enjoy the sunrise with the foreground of a stretch of hills above a winding river valley covered in cloud mist so it looks like the Land Above the Clouds.

Initially, Mangunan was a fruit garden developed by the regional government. However, in its development, this fruit garden is not very developed because visitors prefer to see the panorama from the top of the hill in this fruit garden.

Mangunan Peak is located in the Bantul region south of Jogja City. From the city center, it takes about an hour to reach this place. The Puncak Mangunan ticket price for foreign tourists is IDR 15,000.
