It was a long road to reach the summit. Exhausting yet worthy. This site has an educational material about the ancient life. Try to hike up and you will find a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. You can see the beautiful scenery of Yogya.

This place offers some good hiking. You can see some beautiful rice fields on your way there and then enjoy a nice hike among lush vegetation. There are also some superb vistas on the top.
