Jomblang Cave is famous all over the world because of the large amount of content spread on the internet and has been visited by thousands of tourists who come to Yogyakarta.

Maybe for tourists who only like city tourism, the name Jomblang Cave will be a little unfamiliar, but for some travelers who like challenges, they already know about Jomblang Cave. Among natural explorers, cave enthusiasts and backpackers, Jomblang Cave is a cave that is quite popular and has extraordinary beauty. In 2011, this cave was introduced to the world when it appeared on one of the sites on CBS TV’s real-life game show, The Amazing Race.

In Gunungkidul Yogyakarta, there are many caves, but one of the most famous is Jomblang Cave. This cave is a vertical cave that was formed through geological processes when the ground sank to the earth’s surface about thousands of years ago. The collapse of the land formed a hole with a diameter of approximately 50 meters which became the mouth of the cave. The hole in this area is called “Luweng” by local people, therefore Jomblang Cave is also known as Luweng Jomblang.

Jomblang Cave Tour

To go down to Jomblang Cave, you must have good caving skills, especially the Single Rope Technique (SRT) or using a single rope to climb and descend vertically. But for tourists who visit Jomblang Cave, they don’t need to understand this technique because it has been prepared by the manager of the Jomblang Cave tourist attraction. In the Jomblang Cave tour package, you will be guided by an experienced guide who will guide you until you reach the bottom of the cave.

In the caving activity at Jomblang Cave, you will descend through the lip of the 60 meter deep cave using only a rope. But you don’t need to worry, the equipment used has been safety tested. The journey from the retreat steps to the bottom of the cave will provide an unforgettable adventure experience. On the way to the main area, you can find large, lush trees as well as moss, ferns and bushes that decorate the inside of the cave. These ancient forests were formed from initial vegetation that continued to grow after its extinction and reached a very old age without significant disturbance, thus displaying unique ecological characteristics.

After walking approximately 300 meters from the lip of Jomblang Cave, you will find rays of sunlight coming from Grubug Cave. Here, two large brownish green stalagmites stand impressively on the cave floor. Towards noon, sunlight penetrates the eternal darkness creating a stunning view that is impossible to find anywhere else. The beautiful rays of light from the top of the cave that illuminate the stalactites and stalagmites and the bottom of the cave are so enchanting that some people even call it heavenly light.

To the north of the stone stalagmite is an underwater river. During the dry season, this river can be explored by using a rubber boat to follow the current. This river connects the bottom of the Grubug Cave with several other caves in the Karst Mountains. However, during the rainy season, the current tends to be heavy and the air height increases significantly. Therefore, boating in the rainy season is not advisable.
