Suroloyo Peak (Look Around for the 5 Unique Travels in Jogja)
Suroloyo Peak is the highest peak at Menoreh Hills, situated in Keceme, Gerbosari, Samiguluh, Kulonprogo, Yogyakarta. From the 1,019 meter asl site, you can watch the beauty of Java Island from 8 different cardinal directions. To reach the peak, there are 286 stairs to go through with a 30-60 degree inclination. If you want to get the best view, come at sunrise and before 10 AM. There are 3 guard houses you can use to watch the beauty of the surrounding scenery known as "hermitage", namely Suroloyo, Sariloyo, and Kaendran. In sunny weather, you can see the city of Magelang and Borobudur Temple on the north side, Prambanan Temple on the southeast side, and the summit of Mount Merapi on the east side. Better still, when good fortune is on your side, you can also stare at the peaks of Java Island's mountains, i.e. Mount Merapi, Mount Merbabu, Mount Sindoro, and Mount Sumbing. To reach this place, make sure your vehicle is in its best condition since the road you need to pass is steeply up. There is no public transportation transporting to the location. Alternatively, you can rent a vehicle or ask a friend of yours who lives in Jogja to take you there.
