Madakaripura Waterfall, East Java
When you happen to visit Bromo or planning to visit it, make sure to include Madakaripura waterfall to your itinerary. Madakaripura waterfall is situated at the village of Sapih, in the district of Lombang, around 30-minute drive from Cemoro Lawang, Bromo. Madakaripura waterfall is actually a series of 7 waterfalls at the end of a deep gorge. The legend has it, that this waterfall was a meditation spot for Majapahit Empire’s Prime Minister, Gajah Mada.
To reach Madakaripura waterfall from the parking lot at the entrance of Madakaripura area, you have to take a 2-km hike along the river. It is recommended to use a guide since the path to the waterfall is cut off by the flood and you have to take an alternative path on the other side of the river. Near the waterfall you need to hire an umbrella since you have to pass below the first four waterfalls in order to reach the best spot to enjoy the beauty of this waterfall and see the next three waterfalls.
I believe, it is betterÂ to describe this stunning waterfall with pictures rather than wording, so enjoy the pictures.
