Madakaripura Waterfall, Probolinggo

4.3
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Probolinggo
One of the tallest falls in Indonesia, Madakaripura Waterfall tumbles into a vast grotto. To reach this location, hike through a deep valley, crossing rocky terrain and passing through a narrow chasm, into which a steady rain of small cascades descends. Exit the chasm and find yourself in a huge natural hollow, open at the top, with moss-covered rock faces towering above you. The main waterfall plunges into this chamber, creating a large plunge pool, ideal for taking a dip. You will inevitably get wet visiting this waterfall, so bring a raincoat or an umbrella. You can also buy disposable ponchos and plastic bags for your valuables at stalls along the trekking path.

  • Raincoat is essential unless you wanna get refreshingly wet. Really nice view once you got in there. Bring wide angle lens or use panorama mode in your smartphone. I was lucky to get well-skilled in photography. He is very helpful
  • Really wonderful experience walking under a waterfall. Really beautiful. My driver dropped me off at a row of stalls where he settled the payment for the ticket entrance and motorbike riders. From there, it's about a 10min motorbike ride, look to your right - the view of the hill and valley is amazing. You will then reach another tentage, one of the riders will get off to be your local guide. It is a 30min walk from there to the waterfall (about 2km). Wear sandals / crocs / water shoes, and bring raincoat. You WILL get wet. Water gets up to your shin in some places.
