Foreigners rarely travel the roads to these lush olive groves, hot springs and wild monkeys.

The island’s many hot springs provides reprieve for tired feet after a long day of country rambling.

The Yogyakarta region is practically a museum of Indonesia’s dynastic history. The famed Buddhist temple Borobodur and its Hindu counterpart Prambanan typically lure crowds for its detailed relief.

Nearby, however, the oft-overlooked palace complex of Ratu Boko provides an even more imaginative glimpse of the region’s cultural and religious origins.

Set on a ridge called the Thousand Hills, Ratu Boko offers expansive views of Prambanan as well as Java’s most active volcano, Mt Merapi. Only the foundation of the palace remains, as do former bathing pools.

The archeological site is just a plane away from the country’s capital, Jakarta.
