near Silancur Highland, Mangli, Magelang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

September 02, 2020

Today hash route is near Silancur Highland. Located at Dadapan, Mangli, Kaliangkrik, Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. From Magelang City, you can go to Bandongan direction, just go straight, and arrive at Market, turn left to Mangli Direction. Because it is located at Mount Sumbing Slope, so the road to go there is uphill and sometimes there’s sharp turn.

With altitude about 1300m above sea level, this place has beautiful scenery. No matter you come here in the morning, or in the evening, each scene has its unique.

90th Birthday

August 30, 2020

Every year, we are celebrating our birthday. One year, one time. And sometimes, when you passed someone’s birthday, you will think, there’s another one next year.

Do you know, each age only comes once in a year. You won’t celebrate 17th birthday twice. So, each birthday is very meaningful. Especially when you don’t know if you still able to celebrate next year’s birthday. People’s life is unpredictable.

So, when my grandfather (mother’s father) celebrate his 90th Birthday, it’s really really special. Not many people could life until 90th. During this pandemic covid, it’s hard to celebrate with whole family because we all stay in different city. And we are very concern to grandfather’s health, so only my family going to celebrate. For others, we use video call. My grandfather got mild stroke before so now he can’t walk and only sit in the wheelchair. But his mind and everything is still good, he still follow news and now what happens today. It’s just that nowadays, we think his speaking is start to unclear.

Mount Merapi illuminated by the Sunrise, Magelang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

August 26, 2020

Today we are hashing near Kedung Kayang Waterfall. Because I have a plan to trekking in Mountain on September, so today I decided to join long trek.

We won’t visit the Kedung Kayang Waterfall, instead walk another path.

Kedung Kayang waterfall located in Wonolelo, from Magelang go to Blabak, and turn left to Ketep Pass direction. But, don’t turn left to Ketep Pass, instead turn right to Boyolali direction.

The hash route for long is not too hard this time. First you follow the good path, and in there, we see a beautiful scene: Mount Merapi illuminated with sunrise, while Mount Merbabu didn’t, so it looks like the sun splitting Mount Merapi into 2 color.

After walk quiet far, we turn left and meet the small and steep path. We go down to valley, and then going up, the path is very small and you have to becareful because the soil is wet.

Nothing extreem path in here, and we took 5,22km.

It’s nice to be able to trekking in the mountain with beautiful view.

Delimas is a attraction place near Girimulyo Village, Windusari District, Magelang Regency. Located at Mount Sumbing Slope, this place has altitude approximately 1200 above sea level.

From the car parking, to go to the waterfall, you need to walk about 15-30 minutes (based on your stamina). The path to go to waterfall is going down, so sometimes when it’s raining season, it could be slippery. But the scenery is very beautiful.

Near the car parking, the local made a selfie place. So, if you think it’s hard to go to the waterfall area, you can take selfie in this place.

We come in the morning around 06:00, the sky is very clear and the sun is shine brightly. But when we are going home, foggie replace the blue sky, so we can’t see anything.

There’s a new selfie place near Borobudur Temple, it’s called Svargabumi. This place is unique, because it’s located in the middle of rice fields.

I heard that there’s a cooperation between the investor and the farmer, and it’s beneficial.

Nowadays, many people like to selfie and update in social media. So I think, this place is a must visit place when you come to Central Java / Yogyakarta.

With ticket entrance fee IDR 25.000 for adult, you can take many selfies. The staff in there can help you to take picture too and they know the good angle to take photos.

This place has large car parking.

From Magelang City, go to Borobudur Temple direction. And once you come to threesection near Borobudur Temple Entrance, turn left. Then the first intersection, turn right. This place located before Balkondes Borobudur. Go in from the large field. Usually, there’s staff that are in the front.

As usual, because it’s a new habit, so the staff check our temperature and we have to wash our hands. Don’t forget to wear mask when you are near other people and always keep the distance. That’s why, we decided to visit this place on Saturday Morning, because they are open at 06:30 on weekend. And there’s no people in there at that time.
