Kalibiru National Park

Reviewed By jxxxli - Singapore, Singapore

Didn't regret traveling all the way to Kalibiru, it is about 1.5 hour drive from Borobudur. Lots of scenic spots to take photos. Each photo spot charges about Rp10.000 or Rp15.000 per pax but it is totally worth it. You can also engage their photographer there to help you take photos using their DSLR. Great to visit with friends!
Tip: Avoid visiting here on weekends and festive period as I heard from the locals that the waiting time for the photo spots can be very long. I visited here on a weekday afternoon, no queue at all.

We're on the way back from Kalibiru National Park, when we passed this Reservoir. Just stop by and take some picture of it. The place is clean, not too crowded with tourists.

Kembang Soka Waterfall

Reviewed By Arcquitecto - Davao del Sur Province, Philippines

I was brought here by my local friend, and it was stunning! Like three Waterfalls to choose, and it was very picture perfect! You can meet local vendors, selling cheap foods (if you can speak Javanese or Indonesian hahaha) so you better come with a local friend.

The Cave of Holy Mary Sendangsono

Reviewed By monicatambajong - Jakarta, Indonesia

The place is very quiet and calm. Bear the entrance, there are people selling flowers, candles, Catholic religious accessories as well as some cafe. The design is rather unique and beautiful. For Catholics, if you want to pray in front of Mother Mary's statue, they also provided some short chairs, so you don't have to sit on the ground. They also have a blessed water you can take home.

Mangrove Forest Kulon Progo

Reviewed By daru222 - Purwokerto, Indonesia

Saat pulang tour Yogya, kami lewat jalur selatan 'Daendels' tak jauh dari pertigaan Temon kekiri ada spanduk arah ke lokasi wisata baru "Hutan Mangrove Pantai Pasir Kadilangu" dengan retribusi Rp 5 ribu/orang & tiket parkir mobil Rp 5 ribu- kita bisa menikmati indahnya hutan mangrove diantara tambak udang hasil kreasi warga sekitar dipadu dengan indahnya alam pantai selatan yang disulap menjadi obyek wisata baru yang mengagumkan.
Disana ada 'menara Eiffel' Paris dari bambu,jembatan bambu sebagai pintu gerbang masuk yang unik & artistik; di area ini kita disuguhi berbagai event seperti: hutan mangrove yang terpelihara,motor boat sewa,ayunan 'kepompong', jembatan cinta, negeri diatas mangrove,lorong goa,sangkar penantian dll. Disini kebersihan juga sangat dianjurkan untuk menjaga kelestarian alam khususnya hutan mangrove, hal ini dibuktikan dengan adanya keranjang tempat buang sampah di pojok-pojok jembatan.
Untuk kebutuhan makan-minum, Anda bisa temukan di sekitar lokasi ini {ada warung 'seafood',minuman dsb). Sebagai kenangan kita bisa ambil foto atau selfi dengan spot background yang terbaik

Ayunan Langit

Reviewed By nissa_arus - Johor Bahru, Malaysia

At first, my knees were shaky because of the height and the swing is pulled manually by hand, but after the swing start... oh my my! It was a great feeling.
Imagine swinging in the sky with 360° Panorama of beautiful nature. It was calming for me. The view definitely worth it.
Plus, there were several photo spots they created near the cliff. Such as witch broomstick, so you can pretend to be in Harry Potter world for a while.
It cost 15000 IDR for a ride to the top and 10000 IDR for 'ayunan langit'.
