Madakaripura is truly an off the path destination. Often being forgotten by the explorers who had Bromo as their primary destination. Indeed a great journey through sea of sands,an hour tracking on a broken path which sometimes makes you face mud n walking in the riverside. I called it as a perfect journey.

My experience, Explo description: 

I gave four points for this place. A history,a journey, an outstanding view and last a nature calls.

This waterfall has related historic with a great Prime Ministry, Gajah Mada. A warrior who had strongly struggled to unify the whole territory of the nation under span of control of Majapahit.Known as “the last residence for Gadjah Mada”. According to the guide the name was taken from this great warrior. Mada is from Gadjah Mada, "Kari" or The Last and "Pura" the residence.

Aside of knowing Gadjah Mada's last journey from this place, you will experience your own journey while finding this place. The green of nature will spoiled your eyes and the waterfall itself is like an invitation from the nature to capture one more proof of how amazing our mother nature creation. This is the primary attraction, which is encircled by 7 waterfalls and caves.

Lies hidden at the end of a deep valley in the foothills of the Tengger range, the water has cascades from the dense forest above. Comprising lines of waterfalls where its center reaches a height of 200 meters from the bottom. It's an everlasting raindrops to me. With a lagoon at the end of the path, it's definitely unforgettable journey.

Once you have entering the waterfall circle, it will make you wet. Don't bother to bring an umbrella... Just hire it from the local which are really need our help. They are decent people. The price was also very cheap, around 2000 to 5000 for each of it. Plus... you can make a great pose under the waterfall with those umbrella.

My personal recommendations: 

Be sure that you're in a good health condition if you wanna reach this area after visiting Bromo. A mosquitos or bugs repellent is needed. Your track should be a cement path but sometimes you will have to step on mud, riverside and rocks.So don't get slipped off!

How getting there: 

This area is really off the path. Located in Sapih village, Lombang district. Though it's not far from Bromo area, so far i couldn't find any public transportation directly to this place. Rent a car will be a good option. You can combine it as a second destination after Bromo.

The route:
proboliggo - sukapura village - make a turn left - hit the road for about 6 km - Madakaripura entrance.

A tip to eat: 

U will find a very traditional seller from local who will provide u with traditional tea n coffe.
tea "teh tubruk" , raw black coffe n "gorengan" such us fried banana and "bakwan" ;)

A tip to sleep: 

None of logde located in this area. Staying at the Bromo area will be the best option.

Useful information: 
Open hours: 


Visit duration: 

Half day.

Entry fees: 

Under 10.000.I paid for the guide instead.

I really think that they're just a decent local people... they didn't even ask for the price. So i gave them around 30 thousand rupiah since he's brave enough to help us out..huge ladies ;)...climbing up to the lagoon
