The Pine Forest at Puncak Becici recently made headlines when Obama and his family visited Yogyakarta during their holiday in Indonesia. On top of its wooden deck at Puncak Becici – or Becici Peak - you can enjoy the view over Mt Merapi, Mt Sindoro, the Menoreh hills and the Parangtritis beach facing the Indian Ocean, from afar.

Kalibiru offers quite a phenomenal background view of the Sermo Dam surrounded by luxuriant greeneries beneath the clouds. A heart-shaped deck is a new vantage spot to create those epic holiday pictures. There is also a larger deck where you can pose with your family and friends.
