- Bukit Gancik
Right on top of Bukit Gancik, then you are going to have to enjoy boundless views of this majestic Mount Merapi protecting from afar. You may even enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding tropical plantations out of many platforms. Situated on the slope of Mount Merbabu, Bukit Gancik Solo could be accomplished via a simple hike, so it is ideal for households with older people and kids! Do come early to catch the sunrise at the summit!
- Umbul Ponggok Klaten
Here is your opportunity to see a magnificent selection of brassy fishes without needing to dive down deep into the sea! At the center of town, you’ll come across this famed water park full of countless brilliant fishes and other odd things you can detect underwater. Even though it welcomes traffic audiences, the oceans are amazingly clear and retained in their natural condition, with stones lining their underside.
And underneath the seas lies a whole new underwater world with unique photo props like theaters, television sets, bikes, notebooks, and many more! (Psst: Underwater cameras are available for lease too). If you’re craving to get an enjoyable leisurely time while at Solo, then this is unquestionably a fantastic alternative! We’d advise bringing together your holiday collection for cleanliness reasons.
Together with all the giant tails and waterslides, Umbul Ponggok can also be perfect for families with children! We must admit it even as adults, and we’re huge fans of this water park too! If you’re eager for some experience, it is possible to elect to their diving course bundles too!
- Jumog Waterfall
Want to grab stunning waterfalls pouring down a pond and twisting into mild rivers? It is possible to do this in Jumog Waterfall, in which its waters come in Mount Lawu! Seated amongst verdant greenery all around, refreshing water slides from a 30-meter-tall fall, and people can quickly access the drops any time of year. We recommend falling early in the afternoon to prevent the crowds and revel in the calm atmosphere (some people also come here to meditate!).
At the same time that you’re able to jump from rock to rock closer to the falls, you could even appreciate its opinion on the bridge, or even just jump to get a refreshing morning swim. The sight of these mythical waterfalls, which make their way through the moss and stones, will cause you to feel as if you are in a mysterious fairy universe!
- Kedung Lumbung
If you are searching for an adventure, then visit Kedung Lumbung, where it is possible to swim and relax in a private stone pool beneath the surrounding character. Getting there might need some effort due to the slippery stone route, but the great perspective and experience will surely be rejuvenating!
Lounging at the pure dip pool is a relaxing encounter, but remember that the water may become very deep, so that we just advocate proficient swimmers to enter (kids will also be advised to keep far!). To genuinely immerse yourself in the serenity and natural splendor of Kedung Lumbung, then you may want to come early in the afternoon to enjoy better waters and prevent the crowds!
Also referred to as the Wonogiri Grand Canyon, preferring to enjoy the natural scenery in the stones rather than the pool could be equally refreshing. The pure dip pool stays like a stone inside the plant. A fantastic alternative to crowded shore pubs and resort pools, nature lovers will adore this wondrous charm which can make you feel refreshed!
- Museum Batik Danar Hadi
Have you ever thought about how batik was created? Before we saw Danar Hadi, we imagined that one batik piece might take decades of hard work, devotion, enthusiasm, and imagination.
Every visiting team will find a guide that will direct you through the displays and describe to you the whole batik-making procedure, from implementing the wax into the dyeing procedure — you need to follow your design and use the dye to regions untouched by the wax and then get rid of the darkened areas and then apply wax into the darkened rooms. After that, you can use the dye into the regions in which the resin has been removed, along with the previously colored areas that wouldn’t be affected since the yarn could address them.
A complex piece could take up to months or years to finish! Hats off to those committed batik-makers. The excursion lasted for at least one hour, so be sure to schedule enough time!
Showcasing batik from various areas (notably in Yogyakarta and Solo) and eras essential to local Indonesian history and culture, the tradition aims to maintain local batik tradition. The memorial also includes their very own batik-making chemical that you can see to find out about batik-making together with the natives!
