The name “Punthuk Setumbu” is taken from the Javanese language, namely “Punthuk” which means hill or mound of earth and “Setumbu” which means “tumbu” (a place for rice made of woven bamboo).

Punthuk Setumbu is one of the hills from a row of hills that is part of the Menoreh mountains, in addition to several other hills, such as Cething Hill, Cemuris Hill and Setompo Hill.

Even though there are several hills around the location, but the most ideal place to see natural beauty is only Punthuk Setumbu, that’s why only this hill is used as a tourist attraction.

Based on information from various sources, it can be seen that initially this tourist attraction was just an ordinary hilly field until then there was an Indonesian photographer named Parno who found this location as the best place to take landscape photos from above a height, especially the beauty of the Borobudur Temple in distance.

The name Punthuk Setumbu Mgl has become increasingly popular since this place was used as the location for shooting the AADC 2 film for the Rangga scene when he invited Cinta to enjoy the sunrise.

Greeting Nature From the Top

After doing a light trekking for 15-20 minutes, visitors will arrive at the top of the hill which is almost the same as the basketball court.

Finding this strategic place needs to be done, especially if the visiting time is on a holiday, because the peak is often crowded with sunrise hunters.

The strategic place in question is the edge of the peak bordering cliffs and ravines and is given a guardrail.

If visitors arrive early, after determining the chosen spot, just wait for a while. Furthermore, from the eastern horizon there will appear a thin glow of light that shines to illuminate the sky around him.

That’s when Borobudur Temple looks faint in the distance and sometimes shrouded in a thin fog against the backdrop of Mount Merapi and Mount Merbabu to its left.

The serene atmosphere that was served made all the eyes of the visitors began to focus on the east side.

There were even more mouths that were silenced, replaced by the sound of the camera shutter which the longer the frequency was heard the more frequent as the sun appeared, which was slowly moving upward.
