Jogja Adventure Trip
Every year my company always holds a business plan meeting on December. Where’s our destination this year?
I’m so excited to prepare my meeting and post tour. It wouldn’t be me if I am
not stay for traveling. I always love to see local culture, people and
adventure. I went to Jogja on Tuesday, 6 December 2011. I should go to
first because there’s no direct flight to Jogja from Surabaya .
Me and my colleagues departed from Juanda, Malang
via Wings Air. It took only 45 minutes to reach Jogja. Welcome to Jogja! Surabaya
Sheraton Mustika Yogyakarta is place where we stayed for four days, it’s a five stars resort in
Yogyakarta. A fancy
hotel with Javanese classic ornament. I usually stay in bungalow, motel or
cheap hotel for traveling. I tried to enjoy our business
meeting as if I’m in a real holiday.
Don’t tell my boss! :)

First Destination of the day was
in Kali Urang, Ullen
Sentalu Museum Yogyakarta.
is a private museum that was initiated by Haryono family and now is managed by
Ulating Blencong Foundation. It was established in 1994 and officially
inaugurated on Ullen
Sentalu Museum March 1, 1997,
coinciding with the date commemorated every year as a historical day for Yogyakarta.
That was my second time to visit Ullen Sentalu. I bet you will never get bored to hear about royal history of Yogyakarta. We found memorabilia, paintings, pictures, statues, and beautiful architecture in Ullen Sentalu. A guide would help us to explain about a royal history to Javanese famous cloth, batik. If you want to enjoy Ullen Sentalu, I suggest you to come in the morning. You will have a lot of time to explore and take a photograph outside museum because we’re not allowed to take a photograph inside of museum. Ullen Sentalu opens from 8.35 am to . It only cost IDR 25.000.

My eyes couldn’t stand anymore, I couldn’t join with my friend to enjoy night view of Jogja.
Day Two. We woke up so early in the morning to catch up sunrise in
is an active stratovolcano located on the border between Mount Merapi Central
Java and Yogyakarta. Me and Fitri enjoyed beautiful
sunrise and breathtaking view in . Fitri is one of my close
friend, she’s like my older sister and friend in the same time. It always be
fun spending time with her. Mount
After we finished caving in Goa Pindul, we continued an extreme adventure in Goa Si Oyot. Only five of us who dare to join this extreme adventure. The length of Goa Si Oyot approximately 1000 -1500 meters deep underground, it can be reached with a duration of 1 until 2 hours. Do not enter if you are not brave enough, because we have to squat over 5 meters in the dark cave, before we can walk. We walked over mud and puddles. Extreme adventure in Goa Si Oyot really pumping my adrenaline. You must complete this adventure until the exit of the cave, it takes your energy to finish this extreme adventure. I’m so glad i could make it until the end. It was amazing challenge, you have to try it if you travel in Jogja.
