    Dieng is a caldera of a volcanic mountain. Such a big caldera that you don’t realize you’re inside it. Be careful when you walk around the craters, some parts of the soil are thin, so you can step into a crater, so make sure you find a guide. There are no fences cause the places of the many craters aren’t constant. Usually a guide will find you.

    If you're here in Dieng Plateau (Central Java) , take note that the volcanic craters are still active.

Pegunungan Dieng Favorites

  • The mist roll-in

    Most dramatic views around Dieng can be found anytime. No matter it's early morning, mid day or evening, the mist can come up and covers several of the area. And if you're visiting Candi Dieng [the archeological site of Dieng] early morning before June, you can find the mist at the foot of the temple, so the local address it as "negeri di awan"...
