TemanggungCentral Java province, about 20 km northwest of Magelang.
Temanggung lies at the foot of Mount Sumbing. The climate is quite cool, ideal for tobacco planting. It is said that tobacco from Temanggung is the best in Java, making the town a major tobacco-growing centre. Several tobacco companies have warehouses in the city.
Jumprit Forest Park
Posongaddress: Jl Parakan-Wonosobo Km 09, Tlahab village, Kledung district,This is a viewpoint on the southern slopes of Mount Sumbing, facing south. In clear weather, it should be possible to see across a good swathe of Central Java - Mount Slamet in the west, past Mount Sumbing, the twin peaks of Merapi and Merbabu to the southeast, and Ungaran to the northeast. If lucky, maybe across to Mount Lawu on the border with East Java. Getting up early to be there for the sunrise will probably be the safest bet for a clear view.
