Tumpak Sewu Waterfall, Indonesia's Natural Wonders

Tumpak Sewu Waterfall or also called Coban Sewu is a waterfall with a height of about 120 meters located on the border of Lumajang Regency and Malang Regency, East Java Province. Tumpak Sewu Waterfall or Coban Sewu is the most beautiful waterfall in Java and Indonesia.

Tumpak Sewu Waterfall has a unique formation because it has a water flow that widens like a curtain so it is included in the Tiered waterfall type. The location of Tumpak Sewu Waterfall is in a steep, elongated valley with an elevation of 500 meters above sea level. Tumpak Sewu Waterfall is formed in the flow of the Glidih River which has its head on Mount Semeru. From Lumajang City to the location of the waterfall it is about 55.7 km while from Malang City it is about 66 km. Because it is bordered by the Regency, the location of this waterfall can be reached from Tumpak Sewu Waterfall which is located in Jagalan Hamlet, Sidomulyo Village, Pronojiwo District, Lumajang Regency, or from Jagalan Hamlet, Sidorenggo Village, Ampelgading District, Malang Regency, East Java Province.

This 120-meter-high waterfall is decorated with green plants attached to the brown cliff walls. The sound of the roar of the waterfall breaking the silence seemed to invite you to descend the cliff and feel the splash. The waterfall does not only flow in one point, but along the curve of the cliff, so that tourists will be made to shiver and be amazed to see it.         
 When they arrived at the bottom of the cliff, the struggle did not end there, because visitors had to go down the river and fight the river current. The rocks in the river are not too slippery, but the river current is quite heavy and dangerous. After going through these various obstacles, friends will also see the amazing view of Coban Sewu / Tumpak Sewu Semeru stretching boldly before the eyes. This spectacular waterfall is already marked on Google Maps.
