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.

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

I heard the waterfalls is closed for visitors on certain days due to increase in water flow. Is this correct? Will it be raining in month of October and is it an appropriate period to travel to this place?
