A cool air village on the slopes of Mount Merapi with the natural beauty of the mountains and countryside in the hills, views of Mount Merapi in the distance fitted with carpet of tea and coffee plants that cultivated by local villagers.

Turgo Tourism Village in the region of Purwobinangun Village, District Pakem, Sleman, Yogyakarta always attracted tourists, the tourists are invited to participate in the activity of tea leaf picking up to process it until ready to serve, so nice!

Turgo coffee or (some of locals call it Kopi Merapi) is a traditional coffee that grows only in this village, and sold in limited places in the city of Yogyakarta, such as angkringan community (food vendors at night in the middle of the city of Yogyakarta), hotels, cafe, golf courses, tourist attractions in Central Java and travel agency.

The specificity of the Turgo coffee-making has been famous since long ago, tourists can see the direct process manufacturing of coffee, they directly involved in plucking the leaves, making the typically Mount Merapi traditional tea and coffee with their original Turgo Village flavors in the homes of local villagers.

The natural beauty of the mountains adds passion to perform activities of tourists trekking up the slopes of the hills around the foot of Mount Merapi, to enjoy the beauty of flora and fauna that live in this region accompanied by tour guides while visiting an ancient tomb of Syech Jumadil Kubro at the Turgo Peak Hill.

Not only that, the enjoyment of nature with a desire to invite to camp around the foot of the mountain, watch the milking cows and enjoy the traditional rural culinary 'enthik' vegetables or sweet cassava potato (ubi talas) that has a typical taste of the locals.

Is there a typical art show in the village? Of course, discover the uniqueness of traditional music "jathilan" or lumping horse is ready to be played at any time upon request, the people of the village will soon be dancing along with them as well as eat glass, and bottle attractions. Awesome!.
