Today’s plan was to see Tumpak Sewu waterfall. Here are some details about Tumpak Sewu waterfall. It’s one of the highest waterfalls in Indonesia, with a height of 120 meters. The area isn’t too crowded yet, so if you’re coming to Bali, heading to Java to see Tumpak Sewu waterfall is one of the best options

It’s not recommended for kids below 10 years to visit this place, and if you’re over 60, it’s best to avoid it as well. People with heart conditions or those afraid of heights should also stay away.

We started our journey at 5:30 am. The distance from the place we stayed in Malang to the waterfall was 67 kilometers.

We rented a bike. However, If you have spare money, you can take a car from Malang as well. Although you can use Grab Taxi, they only drop you there, making it difficult to find a return taxi. If you can ride a bike and are traveling on a tight budget, riding a bike is the best travel option.

The city of Malang is slightly colder due to its proximity to the mountain region. Near the waterfall, we could see the highest volcano in Java called Semeru. You can spot the Semeru volcano located behind the Bromo volcano we visited yesterday.

We stopped on the way before 10 kilometers to the waterfall and had our breakfast from a shop across the street.

Upon arriving, we purchased our tickets, and there was a parking area near the waterfall as well. Going down on our own seemed a little risky, so we chose a guide because it was better to descend with someone knowledgeable about the waterfall. Wawan (WhatsApp: +6281370835118) was the guide who helped us on this waterfall adventure. It’s not necessarily required to get help from a guide; you can enjoy the place on your own. However, it’s worth taking a guide when going somewhere unknown. You don’t know the dangerous and slippery places there. Our guide was a great help in getting us to the right places and taking photos.

We started the walk, and after about a 400-meter walk, there is a viewpoint called “Panorama Tumpak Sewu.” The view was breathtaking. The meaning of “Tumpak Sewu” literally means a thousand waterfalls. There might actually be a thousand waterfalls. There’s a side we couldn’t see, with waterfalls all around. We took some drone shots as well.

Then we descended to see the waterfall. The way back down took around 30-40 minutes. It was a bit difficult, but hiking trips are ultimately beautiful.

Finally, we came near the waterfall. It was one of the most beautiful sights we had ever seen. We had no words to explain its beauty. This amazing sight makes you not want to leave the place. There weren’t a lot of people there because we arrived early.

If you’re carrying a camera, carry a waterproof bag because the dew from the waterfall is coming, and cameras can get wet.

Then we returned to our hotel. The street life in Malang was great that night. There were so many shops and night stalls on the roads, offering a variety of shopping or eating options. Of course, we went shopping and bought a pair of shoes for Chamri. We also ate something, and it was the cheapest and tastiest meal we had in Indonesia. Yogyakarta was our next destination.
