Jogja International Heritage Walk 2014, Nov 15 - 16

The Jogja Walking Association will hold an international scale sport tourism event called the Jogja International Heritage Walk (JIHW) on 15th to 16th November 2014 in Yogyakarta, the cultural heartland of Java. The event will be centered in two areas:  at the  Prambanan Temple Complex and at the  Imogiri Village. With the tagline:”Let’s Walk Together", the event intends to promote a healthy lifestyle by walking,  and to further promote the cultural splendors around Yogyakarta.

Carrying the theme “Save Nature, Respect the Culture, Jogja to the World”, participants will be taken on a sport and recreational walk through  5km, 10km, and 20km routes.  The Marching League International Medals will be awarded to those who succeed to finish the full 20km walk  in 2 days.

Up to today,  already 200 participants have  registered who hail  from various countries including: Japan, South Korea, USA, Australia, Netherland, Italy, England, Denmark, Japan, Belgium, Russia, Germany, Taiwan, and France. Indonesia will be represented by a team from Yogyakarta who has been officially inducted as member of the International Marching League (IML). Indonesia is the first ASEAN country that  has been  officially inducted as member of IVV League (Internationaler Volkssportverband) in France on 7th May 2013.

JIHW was  initiated by GKR Pembayun who has chaired the Jogja Walking Association since 2008, under the supervision of the Jakarta Walking Association and Japan Walking Association. The event is also supported by the Office of Tourism of Yogyakarta, the Borobudur and Prambanan Temples Park Management, and other parties. The event will also involve various communities in Yogyakarata such as Yogyakarta's Walking Communities, Green Community, Education Community, Scouts, students, and more.

Participants will be presented with the beautiful scenery and enchanting ambience of Yogya and its surroundings and the opportunity to interact with local communities. Aside from walking, participants will also be invited to plant 1,000 trees  to promote the ‘Green and Eco-Tourism’ concept.
