Central Java / DIENG PLATEAU - beauty misty mysterious
« Last post by promodieng on October 28, 2014, 05:50:26 AM »
Dieng Plateau Volcanic Complex (also called theDieng Plateau) is a complex volcano. A complex volcano is an extensive assemblage of spatially, temporally, and genetically related major and minor volcanic centers with the associated lava flows and pyroclastic rocks. This is another place worth visiting in Central Java, situated around 2000 m above sea level and 100 km from Borobudur. This area northwest of Yogyakarta is in the volcanic mountains and over 2,000 meters elevation. The name "Dieng" means "abode of the gods." There the visitor can find restarted temples build around year 800, colorful lakes and steaming ones. On the road we will see how the farmer use all the land available by using terraces. It's also fresher up here and we are almost above the clouds. The plateau, located 2,093 meters above sea level, offers two sunrises, the golden sunrise and the silver sunrise. Both are equally amazing natural phenomena. The golden sunrise refers to the first sunrise between 5:30 and 6 a.m. It is said to be golden because of its sparkling golden red color. We can enjoy this sunrise from a viewing post at a height of 1,700 meters above sea level in Wonosobo. The place, located in a mountainous area, is easily accessible because the roads leading to this area are all paved.

After savoring the beauty of the double sunrise, a natural phenomenon perhaps found only on Dieng Plateau, we could still enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature. Walk about 10 minutes over a distance of some two kilometers to the southeast of the temple where there is a colorful lake. From the top of a hill the lake reflects a greenish yellow color, the reflection of the sulfate acid that the lake water contains. Beside this colorful lake there is another lake with pristine water. Locals call it the mirror lake because the water is very clear. The surface of the lake water also reflects sunlight. Unfortunately, this beautiful morning panorama is slightly impaired by the rampant felling of trees around the lakes. Unless the tree feeling is checked, this beautiful panorama will soon vanish for good.

Beside the beautiful panorama above, there is also small monuments, which are not more than 50 feet high stand on a crater floor amidst sulfurous fumes and underlined by the presence of a few of the starkest Shivaite temples at an elevation of more than 6.000 feet, are impressive. The site is located four hours from Semarang. In this site, the visitor will see some of the oldest Hindu temples of Java. On the way to the Dieng Plateau, visitors will pass through tobacco plantations and beautiful mountain scenery. This area can reach about four hours from Semarang, the site of some of the oldest Hindu temples on Java. These 50m-foot high monuments stand on a crater floor amidst sulfur fumes. The road to the Dieng Plateau passes through tobacco plantations and beautiful mountain scenery.

i like your post, <a href="" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">Dieng[/url] name derived from Sanskrit language which is "di" means the place and "hyang" means Gods. Overall <a href="" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">Dieng[/url] can be defined as a place of the Gods. While the residents said Dieng derived from the word "edi" which means beautiful in the Java language, and "aeng" meaning strange. In other words <a href="" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">Dieng[/url] is a beautiful place with a lot of oddities.

Pulau Banyak, di Aceh Singkil

Mungkin banyak yang belum pernah mendengar lokasi Pulau Banyak. Ini keterangan tentang Pulau Banyak yang saya kutip dari salah satu website :

"Pulau Banyak yang terdiri dari gugusan pulau- pulau berbatasan langsung dengan Samudra Hindia, tepatnya di ujung sebelah barat Pulau Sumatera.

Ada 99 buah pulau di gugus Kepulauan Banyak yang sangat layak dikembangkan menjadi objek wisata andalan. Termasuk keindahan alam bawah laut dan penyu hijaunya.

Sebagai daerah kepulauan, Pulau Banyak selain memiliki laut yang cukup luas juga pantai yang sangat panjang dan indah, pantai Pulau Banyak tidak kalah dengan Pantai-pantai lain di indonesia. Pasir putihnya lebih lembut, lambaian daun- daun kelapa yang rindang semakin memperindah suasana tamasya dengan pemandangan alam pantai tropis. Indahnya panorama Sunset juga menjadi tontonan tersendiri yang mengasyikkan."

Sampai saat ini Pulau Banyak masih bisa dibilang perawan dan belum banyak fasilitas yang dibangun disana. Bagi anda yang suka dengan pantai yang natural, alam bawah laut yang masih alami dan suka memancing, Pulau Banyak bisa menjadi salah satu pilihan terbaik saat ini.
Bangka Belitung / Hidden Beauty of Belitung Island
« Last post by mivtah23 on October 22, 2014, 05:28:12 PM »
When someone asked me "Where do you come from?" and i said "Indonesia", spontaneously they said "Bali?" ::)

And then i realize that Indonesia in the eyes of international tourists is only Bali..  ???
Well, it's not wrong, Bali is part of Indonesia.. But Indonesia is not just about Bali, we have many other destinations.

For example, Belitung island, an island with lots of natural resources, you name it, woods, plants, panorama, fishes, and many more. Hundred years ago the Dutch Colonial discovered Belitung island as the gems for tin and kaolin resources and named it as Billiton. It was quickly developed into one of the hub, more modern and developed than the old Batavia. However all those glories seems to have vanished long ago as the resource for the mining in Belitung was depleting.

Belitung is well known for its ornaments of gigantic granite stones positioned in “only-God-knows-how” ways all around the island, pristine crystal clear sea water with white sands, preserved natural beauty.
And this island's beauty known as "The Maldives of Indonesia". And it took only 50 minutes from Jakarta to Tanjung Pandan.

If you are going to visit Belitung, you must visit this resort called "Arumdalu Private Resort", the first and the only eco luxury private resort in Belitung island, located in Membalong district. The focus of this resort is not only for their food, beach, but also the culture of Belitung island. They try to build their culture by providing "Batik Class" to all customer and also to the local people. This eco luxury private resort also have their own way to preserve the nature, by become the "Zero waste" resort..What does it mean?

It means that every waste in this resort is useful, from water to the plastic, they can recycle it. In Arumdalu, they recycle the water to prevent the waste from flowing to the sea, and the recycle water use to watering the plants. Not only that, they also use the recycle plastic as their decoration on the garden and gazebo in every villa.

One thing that attracts my attention is that if you look around in this resort, you can't find any paint on their wall, not in the kitchen, not in the bedroom, not in the restaurant, this is their own way to reduce the pollution. To substitute the paint, they use rocks as an ornaments.

If you want to know more about this resort, please kindly visit their website

PS: you can book your reservation by phone or from their website.  ;)

Thank you for reading this thread, and i hope you can share it to others.  :D
