What's included in this trip
Jakarta to Ubud SummaryAdd to Shortlist
If arriving early in Jakarta, perhaps get acclimatised on a walk through the old town of Kota or head to the National Museum of Indonesia for a slice of history.
Climb aboard a train to Bandung, a bustling regional city in the heart of West Java. Enjoy a relaxing cruise on the scenic Situ Patenggang Lake before a traditional Sundanese dance performance in the evening.
Travel south-east through sprawling tea, coffee and fruit plantations towards the lush Indonesian coast. Glide between the impressive caves of the Green Canyon and take a dip in the turquoise water before heading to Pangandaran.
Travel inland to Yogyakarta, a fascinating place that still embodies many practices of traditional Indonesian culture, despite becoming increasingly modernised. See the first rays of daylight break over Borobudur Temple and watch them disappear behind Prambanan Temple at sunset.
Get back to nature in Seloliman Reserve, on the slopes of Penanggungan volcano. Feast on fresh organic fare at the Environmental Education Centre and learn about the inspiring work being done by volunteers here.
Discover secrets of traditional Javanese medicine on a morning hike. Meet friendly locals and perk up with a pot of freshly brewed coffee. Hit the road bound for the cultivated landscapes of the Tengger Valley.
Rise before dawn to begin the trek up Mt Bromo. The sight of this steaming volcanic landscape bathed in morning light is about as good as it gets.
Make tracks to the beautiful coast of Bali and soak up a peaceful sunset on the steps of Tanah Lot temple. Get into beach mode by relaxing with a good book under a palm tree or perhaps strap on a snorkel and hit the ocean.
Arrive in the quaint, leafy paradise of Ubud. With a vibrant local arts scene, bustling market place, cheeky monkey forest and lush rice paddies dotted among villages, Ubud is the ideal place to wrap up this Indonesian adventure.

Maman is one of a kind! He is truly an excellent leader and one of the best tour guides that I have experienced in all of my travels! His humor is sensational and brings SO much energy to a group. He cares about his job greatly and that is obvious in his approach. Intrepid is lucky to have him!
