Best Highlands in Indonesia

You can also explore the ancient Arjuna temple complex with a cluster of five well-preserved Hindu temples such as:

  • Puntadewa Temple
  • Semar Temple
  • Sembadra Temple
  • Srikandi Temple
  • Gatotkaca Temple

Most of them are in the same row as Arjuna Temple. In contrast, Semar Temple is an ancillary temple located opposite Arjuna Temple.

  • Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park

Located in East Java, Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is a beautiful, magical land because of its volcanic caldera. This area is constantly surrounded by fog and clouds.

This park is named Bromo Tengger Semeru from the amalgamation of the Tengger Hindus and the two mountains, Mount Bromo and Mount Semeru, which is the highest in the Java region and one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia.

The exciting thing here is there are many animals to see, such as the Javan deer, marble cat, wild boar, and the leopard. The best part of the park is the opportunity to hike up the volcano at sunrise to watch one of the most incredible views in this world.

However, a permit is required for those who wish to climb this still active volcano, and you should only climb when the volcano is not erupting.
