Yogyakarta has always been known as the centre of Javanea usual culture and the best tourist attractions in Indonesia besides Bali. Yogyakarta can be said to be one reference to tourism in Indonesia because Yogyakarta has many complete packages. Starting from shopping tours, cultural tourism, to natural tourism is also available in Yogyakarta. Yogyakarta is indeed fun to be used as a vacation spot. Nature tourism is also not an ordinary tourist spot, because some tourist attractions in Yogyakarta are challenging tourist attractions.

  1. Adventure in ancient forest, giant cave, in a jomblang cave, Gunung Kidul Yogyakarta

Believe it or not, if this challenging cave is far known as the international world than by domestic tourists themselves. Because this cave has been the filming of the Amazing Race Season 19, it is only natural that the Jomblang cave is increasingly famous. This Jomblang cave is unique because it was formed thousands of years ago due to the geological process. The land, along with the vegetation on it, collapsed to the bottom of the earth, and the process then naturally formed a sinkhole or a giant well. Because of that, until now the vegetation there is in the form of grass, mushrooms, nail plants even large trees remain alive and sustainable for hundreds of years.

The challenge will soon be felt when you travel down for approximately 80 meters from the mouth of the cave. Quickly will smell a distinctive aroma of jomblang caves that are humid, strongly bursting from the trees and cave walls. Maybe it will seem mystic and a little horrified, but CAVING at JOMBLAN cave really will be an exciting and tense experience! During the day (between 10 am to 2 noon, the best time at 12 noon), the sunlight that enters the cave through the hole on the grubug cave will illuminate the inside of the cave.

Unfortunately, the location is difficult to reach. The limit of the number of visitors, will make you a little struggling to try out one of the cool challenges in Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta. You should make a reservation first before visiting this place. Don’t forget to bring changing clothes, including an extra pair of socks. Because the road inside the cave will be a little muddy and will make you a little dirty here. The location of the Jomblang cave in Semanu, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta.

Gunungkidul Regency, one of the districts in Yogyakarta Province is indeed interesting. Because most of the beaches in Yogyakarta gathered here. On Gunung Kidul there are indeed many beautiful and challenging beaches, one of which is the Beach of Timang. A cool beach located about 35 kilometres south of Wonosari with amazing views. Here, every second of you can enjoy the waves that hit cliffs and rocks.

Timang Beach is also worth being referred to as a challenging beach because here, there is a hanging car that makes the heartbeat fast even though it only sees it.

You can try crossing to Watu Long Island using a simple ‘hanging car’ made of wood. The location of Timang Beach in Tepus, Gunung Kidul Regency, Yogyakarta Special Region.
