I’ve just returned from my short trip to Yogyakarta (and Magelang)! And we did something that I’ve always been wanting to do since a long time ago: catch a sunrise at the Borobudur temple.
I’ve been to Borobudur temple before – it was some time in 2011 I think. But all I can remember is the scorching hot weather and the crowds – since we went there at 1 pm.
This time, we decided to wake up as early as 2am and head straight to Borobudur before the sun showed itself. We walked in the dark to the top of the temple, and wait. To be able to witness the sunrise from Borobudur, was one of the most beautiful feelings.
We didn’t get to capture that many photos of the sunrise itself – but it’s one of the most beautiful sights I’ve seen. Gorgeous sun peeking out from Mt. Merapi, stupas are getting lit, the forest behind Borobudur is showing itself. Some people were meditating at the temple. What a peaceful morning.
Just exactly after the Borobudur sunrise trip, we continue our journey further North to MesaStila Resort in Magelang. Just when I thought morning couldn’t get any better, it does!
MesaStila Resort is located in the middle of the jungle with volcanoes nearby – beautiful sight from the infinity pool!
That morning at MesaStila, I was wearing :
- Summer top from ColorBox
- Gray trousers from a local online shop in Indonesia
- Black Classic Petite Ashfield watch from Daniel Wellington (15% Discount Code: SHARONLOHH)
- Summer hat from @topi.nara
- Round rattan bag from @kloh.set
Have you been to MesaStila before? I love it there. Someday I’m gonna take my whole family to stay for a couple of nights ❤
