Bukit Barede Observation Point is sometimes mentioned as an alternative for meeting the dawn instead of the Borobudur temple, but in fact it is not a replacement, because from it you will discover completely different views than in the temple. She is not worse or better, but just different. It offers views of the Merapi volcano and the surrounding area at dawn, after which you can descend and go exploring Borobudur in the morning, until crowds of tourists have gathered there.
In the mornings it can be very cool here, you need to dress warmly. You can meet the dawn from the usual observation deck, or you can climb a little higher to the observation deck on a tree for an additional fee.
