Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist monument, is a short drive from Amanjiwo, one of many religious sites in the area. Time-weathered Hindu temples on the Dieng Plateau date from the 7th and 8th centuries, and at the ancient complex of Prambanan, towering Hindu temples are dotted across the plain. Java’s dramatic landscape is ideal for trekking, whether up the steep flanks of Mount Merapi or into the lush Menoreh Hills, home to idyllic villages, clove plantations and rice fields.
