Punthuk Setumbu Hill is one of the best spots to watch the sunrise with the background of Mount Merapi Merbabu. From this place tourists can also see the magnificent Borobudur Temple in the morning which is confined by a sea of fog. The exoticism of the sunrise that rises in the morning is always a fascinating magnet for tourists.
For tourists and photographers who want to capture the sunrise from Punthuk Setumbu, then the best time to come to this place is during the dry season, which is around June to August. In these months the sun can be seen clearly without being covered in clouds so that it can get a beautiful moment. In addition, the track to the hill is not muddy like during the rainy season. Meanwhile, if you want to take pictures of the Borobudur Temple covered with fog, visitors can come at any time.
