Start the day with morning pickup from your Borobudur-area hotel, then make the short trip to Pakem Village, the starting point of the hike to Menoreh Hill.
Set out alongside your guide, hiking through a landscape of forests, rice paddies, and vegetable plantations that offer a fascinating glimpse of traditional Javanese life and culture. You’ll stop in rural villages along the way, where you can watch farmers working hard in the fields, with the chance to chat with some locals.
Take a break from hiking in a coffee and tea plantation, the perfect place to see firsthand how tea and coffee is grown, harvested, sorted, and processed on the island of Java. When you reach the summit of Menoreh Hill, you’ll have views across the Kedu Valley and the Borobudur Temple Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 8th century. After your group completes the hike back to Pakem Village, this tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel.
