Suroloyo, one fine day July 2014

Suroloyo when it’s sunny

    Suroloyo hill, the highest part of Menoreh hills located in the border of Magelang and Kulonprogo has an outstanding view during dry season. Having high position in 1.100 meters above the sea, we could see the view of Borobudur from Suroloyo. It’s also known as the intersection of the mountains surround Magelang, like Merbabu, Sindoro, Sumbing, and Merapi. It was July 2014 when I went there with these 4 Ikmm pals, and the weather wasn’t in stable condition. It changes from sunny to rainy day. Entering this Suroloyo hill, there’s no fee we should pay for the ticket, only for the parking fee IDR 2k for motorcycle and 5k for car. There’s no public transportation to geth there, so prepare your own ride. It would be nice If we were able to camp there. One visit is never enough actually since the view will be greater if the weather’s nice.


Hope to go there again,
