Welcome to Dieng Plateau


These squat, simple temples, while of great archaeological importance, can be slightly underwhelming for non-experts. Rather, Dieng’s beautiful scenery is the main reason to make the long journey to this isolated region. Any number of walks across the volcanically active plateau are possible – to mineral lakes, steaming craters or even the highest village in Java, Sembungan. Dieng is also base camp for the popular climb to Gunung Prau peak. Most start hiking in the wee hours to catch the sunrise on the summit.

Arjuna cluster located in the central area of Dieng plateau, consisting of four temples that lined elongated in north-south direction. Arjuna temple is located at the north end, then successively to the south is the Srikandi, Puntadewa and Sembadra temple. Right in front of Arjuna temple stands Semar temple. The four temples in this cluster are facing west, except for Semar temple that facing east right in the opposite of Arjuna temple. This temple compound is the most intact compared to the other temple group clustered in the Dieng area.Continue the exploration by visiting Telaga warna, or Color Lake. The lake appears to be a water-filled caldera with several active gas vents below the water's surface, and signs there are sometimes some active vents around the shore. There are usually two lakes, but the smaller one was just a grassy marsh when I visited at the end of the dry season. The smaller lake is usually clear, while the larger one will display bands of color from pale yellow to emerald green, depending on the proximity to the vents. Transfer back to Semarang city.
