Looking for a day trip to wrap up a conference weekend, we decided to head to Rawa Pening in hopes of catching the sunrise. Although not a distinctive tourist destination, the lake does have a reputation for being scenic and operating tours. The taxi ride took a bit longer than expected with some added detours through small villages. Fortunately because of Fajr, there were plenty of people to give directional advice. Though the lake isn't a must see scenic area, it was great to be out so early in the morning and relax with clean, fresh air. Some fishermen were just arriving at their posts while others were casting nets. If in need of a day trip in Central Java, I recommend packing a picnic and taking a book or journal while floating around the lake.
