How to get there?

As I mentioned earlier, the Tumpak Sewu waterfall is located between two districts, namely Malang and Lumajang

if you depart from central or west Java you have to go to Surabaya City first

then from Surabaya, you can choose to go to the city of Malang or Lumajang

but I suggest you go through the city of Lumajang

why? Because the path you will take to the waterfall is more comfortable and safe

the path you are about to take is gentle and easy

different from the path from Malang Regency,

the path you have to go through is in the form of a steep

and high ladder so it is more dangerous

Here’s how to get to Tumpak Sewu

after you arrive in Surabaya you choose the bus to Lumajang

after getting off at the terminal you just have to look for transportation to Prono Jiwo

then head to the location

By the way, the Lumajang area has many waterfalls

Preparation required

There are some preparations that you have to prepare considering the terrain in that place is quite far

The main thing is that you have to be physically fit and robust because the road to the waterfall is quite far

The second is that the sandals you use should be mountain sandals so that they are not slippery when walking on wet rocks because the area is quite slippery

The third is clothes to change into because you will get wet from playing in the water and swimming

Activities to do

several activities can be done there

First, of course, enjoy the beauty of this waterfall from above because the shape of this waterfall is curved in a semi-circle

the second is swimming and playing with water

the third is that you can pick salak fruit because there is also a Salak ( snake fruit ) plantation

Fourth, you can go hiking or trekking down the cliff from top to bottom

Those are some of the activities you can do there
