Route to Location
If you wanna hit up this dope tourist spot in Solo, don't worry 'bout it 'cause the road access is good, even though it's uphill, it ain't too steep.

Starting in the city of Solo, head east and once you hit up Karangpandan, you'll be straight with a road sign. The spot is on the slopes of Mount Lawu in the Karanganyar area. The easiest way is to follow Jalan Tawangmangu, then head to the junction towards the Jumog tourist road - Sukuh Temple - Kemuning - Cetho Temple.

You'll find a little T-junction before approaching the Tawangmangu Nature Sightseeing area. From the entrance, it's only 2km away by taking the straight path along a pretty narrow asphalt road. Peep some pics on @karanganyarkita.

For those taking public transport, you can hop on a bus from Solo to Karangpandan terminal (heading towards Tawangmangu) for only 5,000 rupiahs per person. Then, take a small bus to Nglorog (Sukuh Temple or Curug Jumog) or to Kemuning terminal (Cetho Temple) for 2,000 rupiahs per person.

If you're driving a motorbike, that's also an option as there's no public transport to the temple or waterfall. It'll cost about 50,000 rupiahs round trip, but you can still haggle. From the parking area, you'll need to walk around 400 meters on a path that includes descending stairs made from concrete.

But all that exhaustion from the trip will be worth it with the breathtaking views you'll see at this tourist spot.

The Origins of Myth
Let me school you on the Wedding Waterfall, fam. It's a dope spot named by the locals 'cause it's got two waterfalls in one spot. Back in the day, the spot was called Grojokan Jumog or Dugji, which means waterfall in Javanese.

Now, since the falls got two parts, they started calling it Bride Waterfall. They say if you still dating and wanna get hitched, hit up the spot for good luck. And if you already married, it's a chill place to get closer to your boo.

Folks even say you might find your soulmate there, but that's just a myth 'cause arranged marriages are still a thing. The name comes from the way the waterfalls are shaped like a pair of couples side by side.

The locals believe if a couple visits, their love will level up and lead to marriage. And if you already hitched, the spot brings you closer. Ain't no horror story about it though, it's a new spot endorsed in 2011, with a dope 12-meter drop.

I gotta say this tourist spot ain't the most popular but it's damn clean and well-maintained. They got a small mosque and parking area, and even a pool for the little ones under 7 to splash around safely. It's only 50 cm deep, so no need to stress. Plus, the entrance fee covers all the facilities, so you don't gotta pay extra to swim.

If you wanna stay the night, they got homestays about 1 km away from the tourist spot. Prices range from 50k to 250k, and there's a mini-gazebo by the waterfall to chill in after you tire yourself out.

And yo, if you didn't bring any grub or drinks, no worries, there are food spots with menus like rabbit and chicken satay, plus hot meals and drinks. They even have a foot reflexology path, all gravelly and shaped like a circle, so you can relax your feet.

1. Grojogan waterfall
This dope waterfall is known as "Grojogan Sewu" by the locals, but outsiders call it "Curug Tawangmangu". It's the highest waterfall in Main Java, standing tall at 80 meters above sea level. But to reach it, you gotta climb up around a thousand stairs. Don't worry, though - on the way up, you'll be treated to some sick views, trees, and birds chirping.

There are loads of monkeys in the Grojogan Sewu area. They're pretty chill, but visitors still gotta be careful when they're chowing down. These little guys are protected by the government, ya know.

Once you make it to the waterfall, you can chill out under the mist or take a dip in the pool. And if you wanna stay the night, there's a homestay you can rent out for a decent price. It's perfect for a crew of people.

2. Curug Parang Ijo
Gonna spill the beans on Curug Parang Ijo - a dope waterfall in Install Lawu that's not so well-known compared to Grojogan Jumog and Sewu. But lemme tell ya, the vibe there is lit!

This waterfall, Parang Ijo Falls, is like 50 meters high and it's in the Girimulyo village of Ngargoyoso sub-district. It ain't too far from other cool spots like Sukuh Temple, Cetho Temple, Jumog Waterfall, and Kemuning Tea Plantation. Parang Ijo is located at around 1,000 meters above sea level.

And yo, they got some sick facilities for tourists here, like pools, viewpoints, flying fox, and even a playground. So, if you're looking for a chill spot to hang, Curug Parang Ijo is the place to be!

3. Sukuh Temple
Sukuh Holy Place is a Hindu temple located in Berjo Town, Ngargoyoso Area, Karanganyar Rule, Main Java. It's a spiritual heritage spot that features a church of the yoni and phallus, which makes it pretty controversial.

Despite that, UNESCO declared it as a World Heritage in 1995. This temple was first discovered by a dude named Johnson during the British regime in Java in 1815. Later on, a Dutch archaeologist named Truck der Vlis conducted the research in 1842.

The temple is situated on the slope of Mount Lawu and has a similar design to the great shrines of Main Java like Prambanan and Borobudur. It also resembles the Mayan preparations in Mexico and the Incas in Peru, and even the pyramids in Egypt.

The temple's simplicity caught the attention of a famous Dutch archaeologist, W.F. Stutterheim in 1930, who argued that it was likely built by a carpenter from the city, not a mason, and was made in a hurry due to the political situation during that time.

The temple is located about 36 km from Surakarta and is definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.
