Amazing! Borobudur Sunrise tour the best way – I spent a quick weekend in Yogyakarta before going to Jakarta for work and made a list minute decision to do the sunrise visit to Borobudur. If you have the time I would suggest staying closer to the temple so you don’t have to get up SUPER early.
I was picked up from my hotel at 3:30 AM, arrived at the Manohara hotel (where you buy tickets) around 4:30 AM. And then made my way over to the temple. It was raining (they provide ponchos). While the weather was a bit upsetting at first it added to the ambiance of walking up the temple in the early hours of the day. The sunrise was at 5:40, but I strongly suggest heading over to the temple site earlier as the east facing side of the temple gets crowded.
My only regret is not better planning where I wanted to be for the sunrise. Loads of people were everywhere and it made it hard to get a picture/enjoy the moment.
Borobudur Sunrise Pros :
– get in before public (made my experience much better than my visit the day before at Prambanan)
– get to explore in early sunlight. Gets very hot during mid day.
– head back to the Manohara after (& avoid the market) for snacks. Refreshment area has a nice view of the temple from far away.
Borobudur Sunrise Cons :
– have to get up very early
Borobudur Sunrise Cost :
– sunrise ticket
– driver for 5 hrs from Yogyakarta
Overall: you will be happy you went. Feels a bit touristy at times, but sunrise experience is very unique. A local guide isn’t necessary. The pamphlets provided give a nice run down (diagram, map, explanations of mudras)
Amazing service,clean vehicle,friendly and knowlegable driver....highly reccomended

For four days, I traveled around with Mas Agus from Java Heritage Tours. He took me to see the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, explore vulcanic craters, see the Dieng plateau, and visit various sights in the city of Yogyakarta. I even got a cooking class at his place (which was delicious).
I was traveling through Indonesia by myself, but Agus made me feel very safe and took great care of me. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable. I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I can recommend Java Heritage Tours to anyone! More
