Near my village is a very special place named Gunung Padang Megalithic Site. Like a giant's game of pick-up sticks, rectangular stones lay scattered over the terraced hillside. Geologists guess that buried beneath the megalithic jumble is an ancient pyramid. The arrangements of the rocks and stones that are usually found upright have been laid horizontally on beds of gravel. An ancient form of glue sticks some together and below the piles of stones is evidence of rooms, internal steps and terraces, all evidence of massive building, of human intelligence and planning.

The reason I want to take you here is that I think it’s a magical place where you even can find instruments made out of stone and a throne. It is located top of a hill with magnificent views.

We will start our day at 09.00 am by a motorcycle ride for about 2 hours. In case you are with more than 1 person we will take public transportation. Along the way you will see a typical uptown atmosphere. After several kilometers, you will notice a completely different place, a lot of classic houses and rice fields. Continuing our journey you will be amazed by the view, a thick, green forest lay in either side of the main road and soon mountains start to appear as the trip comes to the main destination. We will arrive at the Gunung Padang Megalithic Site at around 11.00 am. I will serve you lunch on the spot. After finishing our lunch I will guide you along the site and show you the unique things that are still captured in this place. We will stay for about 2 hours or longer if you wish and take the same route back.

How to get there

I can arrange pick-up from Jakarta and drop-off at extra costs. This is around 3 hours.
