Prambanan To Plaosan Cycling

A journey to the past, a cycling pilgrimage from temple to temple

Peddling through traditional villages and around serene ancient temples; this is today’s cultural immersion adventure on bikes. Rendez-vous with your local guide near Prambanan temple, then set off on bikes, passing through small paths in the village where you can meet local people going about their daily activities. Stop in the rice fields, market and home industry to interact with local people, get to know more about their lives through some light conversation. Exchanging is the real experience during this trip!

The landscape around the village where the temple is built will take you on a journey to the past, in the mid of 9th century when Buddhism was in its heyday as the first major religion in the island. Plaosan temple is a Buddhist monument located about 1 kilometre northwest of the Hindu Prambanan temple. It features hundreds of small buildings, including numerous stupas and shrines.
