Magetan is a town in East Java.
This road is easily accessible by car, although considerably steep. As of 2013 a new road has been constructed, wider, well marked, with guard rails. Whether approaching Sarangan from the west (Solo/Jogjakarta) or the east (Magetan/Madiun) the way road is reasonably easy to navigate.
By public minivans.
CULTURAL/LOCAL CUSTOM NOTE: There is another small lake near Telaga Sarangan, which is called Telaga Wurung [literally "Lake of Cancellation"]. Those who have a girlfriend/boyfriend but have not got married are advised not to visit this lake, otherwise their relationship would split. Here the "cancellation" means "being cancelled from getting married".
There are a restaurant and some "warung"s [simple, small eateries] near the lake - Overpriced!
The town also has some restaurants.
Hotel Sarangan - This hotel has it's own restaurant for those less adventuresome, and room service. English is spoken. Most rooms have a view overlooking the lake and the valleys in the distance. Most rooms are two room suites with fireplace, shower and western toilets.
