Very beautiful short walk that takes you under the falling water. May be a little dangerous with slippery rocks but local guides are extremely nice and will go out of their way to ensure your safety. Purchase disposable raincoats from the locals before entering.

I came here as a rest stop on my way to Bromo. It was unexpectedly wet and wonderful waterfall. I came out refreshed and happy to have captured this natural beauty.

The entry had been blocked by a landslide after heavy rain, enough to close the attraction in many countries. We simply took off our shoes, waded through knee deep mud and went on. a good place to spend a day between Ijen & Bromo

Good place and the view is very good from below the waterfall. Take waterproof camera . This will help to take awsome pics. Also check if you r allowed under the main waterfall.

You can try Bali Java holidays. Ask for Cahyo. Even if he cannot ferry you, he has recommendations. It will be cheaper than hotels. By the way December is not a good time to visit Madakaripura. It's also very rainy this... More
