Who says sunrise can only be enjoyed at the beach? Nglanggeran’s ancient volcano, Gunung Api Purba, standing at 700 meters above sea level, provides a mesmerizing sunrise view. A 50-60 minute hike will take you to the western peak, also known as Gunung Gedhe. While camping on the summit is a no-go, a nearby camping ground allows you to pitch a tent for just Rp20,000 per person. Don’t have your own tent? No worries – you can rent one on-site.

Fed by a natural spring from the slopes of Gunung Api Purba, this mini reservoir prohibits swimming or fishing. What sets Embung Nglanggeran apart is its stunning panoramic views, perfect for capturing both sunrise and sunset.
