Hello again Traveller..
Even though this Covid-19 hampers all of our activities, that doesn't mean we can't spend our lovely weekends that too good to miss. But,, again, don't forget to follow the health protocols as always.

Sri Gethuk Waterfall

This time, I will show you more about one of the tourist sites in Yogyakarta. And now, I’ll introduce you to Sri Gethuk Waterfall, which is one of the natural tourist attractions located at Mungguran II, Bleberan, Playen District, Gunungkidul Regency, Yogyakarta.

Air Terjun Sri Gethuk

Not only does it present a beautiful waterfall view, before you get to the waterfall, you will also find Goa Rancang Kencana, which has interesting historical stories. That said, this cave is an ancient cave that has been inhabited by humans since 3000 years ago with evidence of human bone findings. Moreover, according to the local people's story, this cave was also used to organize a resistance strategy against the Dutch colonialists. Besides enjoying caves and waterfalls, there you can also enjoy other recreation by playing flying fox. Exciting, isn't it ?? And again, to get to the waterfall, besides using a raft, you can also use body rafting, which is as exciting as using a raft. To get on the raft, you have to walk about 2km from the ticket counter. And the trip from the river to the waterfall only takes 7 minutes.
