5 reasons why Yogyokarta is a photography gold mine

Pack your gear and get ready for our upcoming tour to beautiful Yogyokarta. Also known as “Jogja”, the city is the center of Javanese arts and culture, known for its traditional, handmade Batik crafts. It also happens to be surrounded by natural beauty, from its skies to seas, making it an ideal destination for photography, whatever your specialty.

The sunrise at Borobudur Temple

Built without a single adhesive, the Borobudur Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the world, and stands majestically against the horizon. Venture to the top, and be prepared to capture some fantastic landscape shots, of ancient stone structures and mountains shrouded in clouds.

Jomblang Cave

Imagine standing in a cavern with its ceiling more than 50m above head, sunlight streaming in from a hole in the roof of the cave. Goa Jomblang has been called “amazing” a lot, and rightfully so, as its one of those places that remind you that if you seek, you can still find breathtaking spots in our world.

Timang Beach

With its ombre blue seas that smash against rocky shores, Timang beach is the perfect spot to capture the fury of mother nature. What makes this spot unique is that just off the shore, there is a small island that can only be accessed by a wooden cable cart via a pulley system made of steel ropes. It’s a precarious position, but it certainly makes for a stunning shot.

Lush rice paddies

Rolling rice paddies painted an emerald green are one of Indonesia’s most ubiquitous sights, given that rice is a big trade there. From terraces to flat paddies that glint in the setting sun, this is the time to flex your landscape photography skills.

While you’re at it, explore the small backstreets that run through the villages. You will find yourself amidst lush greenery and traditional villages brought to life by locals going about their day. Needless to say, this is where you’ll want to capture street and portrait photograph.

The Borobodur Lantern Festival

Every year, thousands of lanterns are lit and released into inky skies, against the backdrop of the magnificent temple. Vesak Day is huge in Indonesia, and you’ll see processions of monks draped in their saffron-coloured robes carrying candles and orange flowers, breathing a new life into the streets. At the end of the ceremony, the Puja lanterns are released, symbolizing enlightenment for the entire universe.
