Starting a journey over Java, it's recommendable to have a soft start, adapting to Indonesia's main island. Digesting the culture shock, in fact the lack of culture in all-day-live, is a real challenge. A good starter therefore is Pangandaran.
Java is deeply shaped by volcanos. Here: Gunung Sumbing, Gunung Sondoro, right behind the Dieng Plateau and Gunung Butak Peterangan. At the very right side down: Gunung Ungaran. Seen from the peak of Gunung Merbabu. Image: Asienreisender, 2012
Despite of all the annoyances a traveller faces on Java, it also offers some highlights as Borobodur, Prambanan, Mount Bromo and Mount Merapi. They are described in detail on other pages of this website.
