Dieng, which means “Abode of the Gods”, is a plateau that forms the floor of the Dieng Volcanic Complex near Wonosobo town. It’s located 2,000 metres above sea level and far away from major cities. It’s likely that the zone originally comprised of a large volcanic crater, that later transformed into a lake and marshy area, before finally becoming the highly fertile landscape of today. Other than its scenic views, cool, cloudy weather and historical significance, Dieng Plateau is also famous for being Indonesia’€™s largest producer of potatoes. But before ‘€œpotato fever‘€ took hold in Dieng, tobacco and corn were the major crops grown here.
