My friends and I want to go visit Dieng Plateau near Wonosobo in Central Java. We will be heading there from Jakarta. Which is the best way for us to get there? Should I take a train to Purwokerto or Yogyakarta? Which of this place is easier to get to Wonosobo and how do I get there? Is there a bus straight up to Dieng? Please suggest me the best way possible to get to Dieng. Thank you!
If you are coming from Jakarta, it makes more sense to take a train to Purwokerto instead of Yogyakarta so that you can save time and distance. Also from Purwokerto it is more straight forward to get to Wonosobo, in just one bus ride. When reaching Wonosobo, stop off at the junction near Klenteng or tell the driver in advance that you are heading for dieng, then from there catch a public mini bus to Dieng. You might need to walk a little to get to a stop for minibus, ask a local for direction and it shouldn’t be more than 15 mins walk away.
