A somewhat long walk is needed to reach the waterfall, may not be suitable for elderly or those who have walking difficulties or other health problems. The scenery is somehow beautiful though and the air is cool and fresh. Beautification of the area is strongly...More

I didn't expect much about this place, considering it is a local attraction. However, when I got there with my friends, the place actually looked well kept. The grass was trimmed, the sidewalks were clean and there were even life guards guarding the water, making...More

I always find this scenic place comfort me. A place where I can find peacefulness just by sitting and watch the beautiful waterfalls. If you want to visit here, don't worry, about 50 meters from this location there is a big hotel where you and...More

AFAIK, this is the oldest waterfall site in the region. It is well preserved. The waterfall itself not that big or tall but it's truly refreshing. Kakek bodo means 'stupid old man/grandpa' taken from a local legend. The local government did a good job in...More

Interesting place for family vacation. Not sure who is in charge, but sometimes lot of garbage after people finished eating. Need to have proper maintenance people.

The name itself means "stupid grand-dad". Nice location with nice view, if you can hike about one hour in slow moving traffic. Nice for light workout.

Kakek Bodo translates, oddly, as 'stupid grandfather'. Perhaps some local will be able to explain how this waterfall attracted this odd name. It is not really in Surabaya but around 30 kms away in Tretes, an under-rated hill resort with amazing views. Like most Javanese...More
