During today’s tour we are going to visit two temples with both a different religious background; Buddhist and Hindu. The first temple we are going to visit is the well known Borobudur Temple. This Buddhist temple is the biggest in the world and is on the list of UNESCO. Early morning is the best to visit the Borobudur, before the crowds come in and the is still standing low. Even if you have a day which is less bright, don’t worry, even then this temple will give you an unforgettable memory as it gives a magical feeling to wander around between the stupa’s. When we are finished visiting this temple we go for local lunch and then continue to our next destination. After around an hour drive we will arrive at a soft hiking trail which will lead you to our Hindu temple for today. This small Hindu Temple is called Selogriyo and was build even before the Borobudur. The temple itself is after having visited the Borobudur not amazing, but the walk towards it is. The temple is located in a valley with at the slopes many rice fields. Walking this trail we will pass villages where you can stop and have a chat with the locals and see how hard the work is to maintain these rice fields. Learn more about the planting and harvesting process of rice and come back as an “expert” in rice fields. The trail is around 2 kilometers from the start and to be able to visit the temple, we need to climb around 200. join us on this tour and be able to enjoy some beautiful panoramic views.
