The view is very nice and tranquil. We walk further up thru jungle. We were surprise to find a small hut selling hot drink and instant noodle.The jungle have plenty of photographic opportunity for macro shot : insect and flower.

This place is clean and well-organized. From Embung Nglanggeran, we can overlook the ancient volcano. There are several posts for photographers to take sunset picture from higher land. Definitely worth the visit, especially before the sun sets.

Great view. You can see nglanggeran volcano and the surroundings from here. Good to come very early in the morning or before sun sets because it won't be too hot. Beware the stairs are a bit slippery. It is quite far from Yogyakarta city.
