There is one official way that tourists can do to enjoy sunrise tour Borobudur. Manohara Hotel that is located on the park grounds of the temple is the only one that markets the tour. The hotel comes with an interesting offering to allow tourists to enter the complex of the temple early in the morning, at 4.30 am so you can catch the beautiful sunrise there. It is 1.5 hours earlier than the official opening hour of the temple. To join the tour, you need to pay 400,000 IDR or $31. Do you have to stay in the Manohara hotel to join the tour? Of course not. You can still enjoy epic sunrise from the complex of Borobudur Temple even if you don’t book a room in the hotel. You need to make a reservation first for the tour if you choose to stay outside the hotel. However, staying in the hotel is the easiest way to enjoy a sunrise tour Borobudur. You need to arrange transport to the complex of the hotel in time at 4.30 by yourself (which is a bit complicated for some people).

The Best Time to Enjoy Sunrise Tour Borobudur

Borobudur Temple is opened to the public a year-round. However, you need to keep in mind that Indonesia, where the temple is located, has two seasons, they are the rainy and dry season. The rainy season usually lasts from October to March. This is when the country is poured by rain almost every day and climbing all the 118 stairs of Borobudur Temple in the dark to catch the sunrise is less comfortable. Not only that but the trek to the top of the mountain could be a bit slippery. The best time to enjoy sunrise tour Borobudur is in the dry season which occurs from April to September. This is when the skies are clear and no haze at all. However, the temperature could be very high during the dry season so prepare yourself well.
