Solo Things to Do: 60 reviews and 153 photos
On the slopes of Mount Lawu, rests a 700 year old Hindu temple 1470m above sea level.There are few visitors to this place as the journey here was dangerous. No guide book will mention the perilous but beautiful journey through mist-covered tea fields, deep yawning valleys and terrifying hair-pin turns. Guess there are few tourists who are willing to risk the thousand metre drop. But once you're there, you'll forget the peril you went through. The temple, hewn out of darkened stone,was beautiful and it overlooked the gorgeous green valley below. Every once in a while, a cloud blows over the temple and you'll think for a while that you're in a temple in the sky.
Where: 1470m above sea level, Mount Lawu, Java, Indonesia.
How I got there: On a rickety ojek(motorcycle) which broke down several times on the journey from Solo to the mountain. The trip was arranged by Warung Baru guesthouse.
