Instagram spots in Yogyakarta

1. Becici Peak

This place is located approx. 1 hour by car outside the city center of Yogyakarta, and is a true Instagram spot. They have built several unique and different viewpoints for visitors to enjoy. We were surprised by how few people were there! You should plan on spending 1 hour here.

Kindly note that this is not an authentic Indonesian experience, and the park has a very touristy vibe to it. I would not recommend going here if you are not into “theme parks”. However, it is still a fun place to visit if you have the time 🙂

TIP! Go early to watch the amazing sunrise!

Becici Peak was probably our favorite spot of the 6 instagram spots in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It was between 5-7 viewpoints, swings, zip-lining experiences and different art installations. And more importantly, there were no other people there!

If you have to choose one place to visit, this would be the one. Maybe you could do an instagram challenge, and see how many instagram posts you can make from this place? 🙂

Entrance fee: 11,000 IDR, 2 persons incl. parking

2. Serebu Batu

This is almost like a small theme park located in the middle of the forest in Yogyakarta. They have made everything from wood, like different tree houses, a small hobbit village, bridges, statues and viewpoints. You should plan on spending between 1-2 hours here.

Serebu Batu is located 10 minutes by car from Becici Peak, and you can easily include this place after your visit to Becici Peak. This is probably our second favorite of our 6 Instagram Spots in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

3. Puncak Songgo Langit

If you are keen on hiking, you may walk through the pine forest to the very top of the mountain at Serebu Batu. The hike is approx. 1km long, and is very easy with a path leading you all the way up to the top. Once you have arrived on the top, you will be treated with a great view and more viewpoints and art installations.

TIP! Please by something from the kiosk if you venture all the way to the top. It is a nice way to support the locals, and very few people hike up here.
