Feel the wonderful peace when watching the Sunrise at Nirvana
The most beautiful thing to see and enjoy in the morning is the sunrise. You can feel a positive energy and great delight that the universe kindly gives to every single human being on this earth.
4km westbound of the temple of Borobudur, you can watch sunrise in nirvana hill (Setumbu). Within 400 m above sea level, you are likely to see the solid Borobudur temple. It feels so peaceful underneath the surrounding fog. The twin volcanoes (Merapi and Merbabu) look as if they are challenging the sky, adding to its beauty.
This place is really easily reached. It takes approximately 20 minutes drive from Borobudur. After you arrive at the parking area, you have to walk down a path slightly uphill for 15 minutes.
Remember: Enjoy every single step of your feet during the walking path by listening to music composed by animals and leaves blown by the wind. Excellent combination!!!
Finally you come to the peak of pleasure. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea served by local people to refresh your body after such hiking exercise. Also, embrace the universe treats around you. The sun on the east primarily will shine with golden spark.
Cycle around the villages
After or before visiting the temple, we can have something new to do, to see and to feel. Here we can cycle around the villages. Why cycling? By cycling you may feel the interactions of local along the way and enjoy everything.
Grab some tofu in the villages
After cycling for a while, we might feel a bit tired. Here you may grab some pieces of tofu that local people produce as their daily activities. Not only tofu, but also you can get fresh soya milk. You can see the process of making tofu in this village, well known as tofu center in Borobudur.
See the pottery as carved on the temple walls
The next stop is Pottery village, well known as center of pottery making in Borobudur. There are more than 80% of people who make pottery as their daily activities. They also keep the old fashion crafting way. Now it's time for you to make pottery :)
Feel the happiness of local people
After visiting some places, you might have lots of opportunities to meet local people. I hope you have good impression, and you are happy to meet them, so they are. I wish they'll always keep that happiness, also their heritage in the future.
This is the end of the trip.
