Sikunir Hill in Dieng is also well known as the land above the cloud. There are some spots to enjoy sunrise and sunset as well as you can establish a tent and spend here for some nights. The best time to enjoy sunrise is starting from July to August in which this area has been in the dry season.

Do you love climbing and hiking? There are so many options for those activities in Dieng. One of the most popular and likable by many tourists is Mount Prau. Of course, just like climbing other mounts, you need some physical and mental preparations first. Meanwhile, if you have been experienced enough in this type of outdoor activities, climbing Mount Prau is probably not as hard as climbing other mounts. Yes, the height is only 2,565 meters above the sea level, relatively low compared to the others.
Arjuna Temple is the next spot that is included in the best tourist objects in Dieng. Well, even the temple is not the only temple in this area but there are also some others including Bima, Srikandi, Puntadewa, and Sembadra temples. This complex of temples represents that Hinduism was once ruling this area. Based on the inscription discovered in this area, there is a possibility that the temples were built in the beginning of the 9th century.
The width of Sikidang Crater is around 200 meters square and it is located in the flat area. This way, the visitors can simply see the bubbles of lava along with the smoke produced there. Although the crater itself is really beautiful and it is surrounded by a very scenic landscape, you must be very careful for sure for the poisonous sulfur when it is inhaled too much. For its uniqueness, it is reasonable if the crater is included in the best tourist objects in Dieng to visit.
