Live High in Dieng Plateau, 2090 Meters Above the Sea

I'm in the traditional village 2090 meters high above the sea, with fabulous friends from my college. While we were reaching the village, which is said to be one of the highest villages in Java, we couldn't see anything but smog. Which is cool and different experience for us. The village was so cool that fingers freezed. The warmth of Hindu temples stayed us warm inside and we admired the awesomeness this cool village. I'm giving my high five to the first villagers building this village; ancestor from Hinduism kingdom in Java.

This morning we climbed the peak of Dieng to see the sunset. We started when the sun was still down at the back of the mountain. The peak is covered by pine trees and the steps are quite steep. Been a long time I didn't work out, I tried so hard to climb it. It's that my body cells burnt the calorie to get some energy. I pushed myself to reach the peak; committed to see the light at the top. We finally reached there and the peak was pretty cool, surrounded by thick smog; feeling like being in the ground above the cloud.

"Dieng" itself comes from "Di Hyang" which means Above of the Gods. Dieng Plateau, located near Wonosobo, Central Java, is a marshy plateau that forms the floor of a caldera complex on the Dieng active volcano complex. There are about 8 small Hindu temples from the century of 7th and 8th. They are the oldest Hindu temples in Central Java and the first known standing stone structures in Java. The details in the temples here have similarity with ones in Angkor Wat, Buddha temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Temples structures in Dieng were generally smaller than Angkor Wat.

Be fabulous in life and safe travel back to where you started!

Live high!
