Gong Cave, Pacitan

4.1
#3 of 16 in Things to do in Pacitan
Named after a gigantic stalactite that produces a gong-like sound when struck, Gong Cave is known for its five "magical" pools, allegedly possessing healing powers. The cave, with the lowest point 256 m (840 ft) beneath the surface, features 12 rooms and seven natural springs. Notice how colorful lights illuminate the interior, but hold on to the railings while walking down the stairs to prevent slipping and falling. Bring or rent a flashlight, and take advantage of the area's souvenir shops, restaurants, and parking area.

  • Goa gong is goa which was already known by the public at large. access to any of his current there is already good. you guys are not going to be confused because there have been a lot toward signposts the way to get there. Indeed for a visit there should require physical and take heart, because for exploring goa gong you guys going up and down stairs sometimes slippery. provided also a flashlight and a fan during a crawl of goa and guide. There is a pretty good guide to explain briefly the entire contents of goa. but education regarding stalagtit and stalagmites still lacking, many of the visitors even touching photo service providers stalagtit and stalagmites.
