Ce que vous allez faire
A day in Banyubiru...The best hikes start early so let's leave at 6.30am! I will show you the stunning beauty of the forests and ancient villages in the mountains. Setting off from the rice fields in the back garden and tailored to match your level of fitness, and interest in local culture, flora and fauna. We will be back in time for a typical Javanese lunch in our historic restaurant Sitinggil, and a coffee straight from the plantation in the hills beyond. Using local mini-bus transport (an experience in itself), next we set off on a 45min boat trip on serene Rawa Pening, where we will see lots of wildlife on the lake, and local fishermen. Afterwards visit hidden Candi Dukuh, a 9th century Hindu temple up on a jungle-filled hill overlooking the nearby lake. And we can stop by the local market on the way home to pick up snacks and in-season fruits for afternoon tea! I'll tell you all about life in modern Java, and the 'kejawen' traditions of the past. If you are interested, the area has a rich and complex history I would also love to share with you throughout the day. I speak fluent English and Slovakian, and can get by in Indonesia, Czech, and German.
I'm a record-holding marathon runner who is passionate about trail running, hiking, triathlons, nature, gardening, history and culture. Having traveled all over the world, I find Central Java fascinating and beautiful, and am excited to show the real face of the community and natural surroundings to visitors. I will tailor your experience/relevant activities to fit what you are interested in, your level of fitness, and even the weather :). I also have a masters degree and archeology experience.
Ce qui est inclus
I will provide drinking water for the hike.
Be sure to bring sensible (layers, including both warm and waterproof) modest clothing, sports shoes, sunscreen, and a hat.
This area is an undiscovered jewel. The scenary in the hills behind Sitinggil is simply amazing, and almost untouched by tourism. I am considered a local expert for hidden trails....See coffee plantations, herbs being grown in the forest, unlimited ricefields, lovely wildlife, and even some monkeys if you are lucky! The lake, temple and museum we will visit are also very interesting and I look forward to explaining the fascinating history.
