Huge waterfall near Bromo. Bring your swimsuit, dry back, and good water shoes for the best time. You will get wet and can swim beneath the falls! They sell rain ponchos as well if you opt not to get wet. You will need to walk...More

Get ready to wet or wear the raincoat!!! Amazing waterfall, you can reach to the edge of this waterfall with a little hiking through slippery stones. Not recommended for those afraid of heights. Totally worth it!!!

It takes a hike of 2.5 kms to reach the waterfall but it's totally worth the effort and the time. Be sure to buy / carry a raincoat.
