Welcome to Dieng Plateau
These squat, simple temples, while of great archaeological importance, can be slightly underwhelming for non-experts. Rather, Dieng’s striking scenery, which comes into its own during and just after the rainy season, is the main reason to make the long journey to this region.
A word of warning: the area has become popular with local coach tours and unfortunately this has contributed to the despoliation of some sights, particularly Kawah Sikidang. Those who have seen active crater lakes elsewhere may want to give the latter a miss.
