A panoramic view of the Baturraden mountain resort on the slope of Mount Slamet in Central Java, Indonesia. Named for a legend about star-crossed lovers, a manservant (Batur) and noblewoman (Raden), the site features views of Mount Slamet and the nearby city of Purwokerto. Although marketed for ecotourism, it also features a mini-train, paddleboats, a water slide, and a pool.
