When you purchase the sunrise at Borobudur via manohara resort, the entrance fee already included the entrance to the temple, torch light and snacks at the resort. Usually the snacks are gone by 8am. Also, if you return the torch light at the lobby, you will get small batik scarf as a gift.
[NEW Update Oct 2018] They have changed the entrance. Now you must go to Manohara Restaurant (not the resort). And the breakfast is way way better now. They don’t serve “lame” snacks anymore. Breakfast is served at the 2nd floor at the restaurant. You still get the scarf if you return the torch light. From the Restaurant to the top of the temple is only 15 minutes walk. Super easy compared to the old route. Click here for the new location of the new entrance.
