There are two caves near Pacitan, Goa Gong and Goa Tabuhan. Whereas Goa Gong has been made accessible to the public in 1995, Goa Tabuhan has been a must do stop on the route from Solo to Pacitan as long as we can remember.
The half open Tabuhan Cave is not so spectacular, the stalactites and stalagmites of Gong Cave are much more beautiful. The real attraction of Tabuhan Cave is the gamelan music villagers make by hitting the stalactites. These have been selected for the exact notes as customary on the gamelan scale. As usual the rhythm is set by a drum and the orchestra accompanies one or more female singers.
I do not remember what we paid last time. Probably a couple of 100,000 rupiah for a ten minute performance.
If you feel like it, you can also enter deeper into the cave through a narrow corridor to an alcove where people sit to gain strength through meditation in the dark.
Location: Wareng village, Punung district, Pacitan regency.
Directions: Look out for the signboards, about 30 km before you reach Pacitan.

First stop for the day because the driver already knew the best route for our trip that day. The cave was not like the gate, the cave itself was small. There were several men tried to rent flashlight for 50k. We tried to say no but they insist. Fortunately we were 5 so we could split that 'charges'. The tickets to get in there was IDR.7k. They hit some stalactites and stalagmites to prove that it sounded good, like music instruments. If you want them to play several songs, you need to pay IDR.150k. We spent 10-15 minutes at this place since this cave was not that big and deep.

The cave in which we could explore was small (we even had to bend our body low enough to enter some parts) but they have traditional singing show inside the cave in which somebody will hit the stalactites to produce the percussion-alike sound

Be careful with the men near there who rent headlights. I thought there would be a long way inside but actually this cave is small! And he costed us 50k and kept asking us for money. He didn't even give enough information about the cave to us. Really awful experience.

Anyway, you can ask them to play 5 songs using stalagtites as musical instruments which is super unique but that would cost you 150.000
