DIENG PLATEAU

The Dieng Plateau is an upland volcanic plain in Central Java, famous for its scenery and ancient Hindu temples. 


The Dieng Plateau is a caldera complex formed by the ancient eruption of Mount Prau. The caldera was once filled with water and dried up over time. Volcanic activity continues to this day, with sulphuric fumes and poisonous lakes. At an altitude of 2,000 m (6,600 ft), it's much cooler than the surrounding lowlands. It is located in the regencies of Wonosobo and Banjarnegara.


Sightseeing here includes a hot spring, a so-called multi-colored lake, and some impressive scenery from the peaks. The different sights all charge a small entrance fee upon entry. The fresh air, beautiful greenery and quiet make the plateau an enjoyable place to stay.
