Thetraveljunkie.org – A backpack and a lot of desire. We wanted our Java trip to be unique and special, feel the magic of those improvised trips that aren’t forgotten, the perfect place to make it happen. To return to our reality means to stop the time to get some air and start a new day in the best possible way. Walk around the largest Buddhist structure on earth in the morning. Sunrise, sunrise. To enjoy the unusual things but with renewed energy is one of the best sensations of the world.
Here are our Borobudur sunrise memories.
This famous Buddhist temple, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries, is located in central Java. It was built in three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and, at the top, a monumental stupa. The walls and balustrades are decorated with fine low reliefs, covering a total surface area of 2,500 m2. Around the circular platforms are 72 openwork stupas, each containing a statue of the Buddha. The monument was restored with UNESCO‘s help in the 1970s.

Happy Sustainable Travels!
