Wurung crater is a hill with overdraft like a mountain crater covered with grassland like a green rug. This crater is also known as the Bukit Cincin.

When the weather is sunny, Mount Ijen and Merapi stand side by side greeting you. You are guaranteed to never feel satisfied enjoying a scene like this.

In the midst of the lush forest of Bondowoso, it turns out there are unique magnificent buildings, which resemble the ancient site of Stonehenge in England.

A waterfall about 30 meters high is worthy of being your first choice because it has a lot of uniqueness. First, the water is yellowish and emits a puff of smoke. This is because of the high levels of sulfur from Mount Ijen in it. Secondly, near this waterfall you can relax in hot springs which are believed to be effective in improving blood circulation and healing skin diseases. Third, the beauty of this waterfall can be enjoyed from the side of the cliff. This waterfall itself empties directly into the ground like Niagara Falls in America. About 1 km from here is another waterfall, Niagara Mini. The term is certainly not without reason. Although "mini" and only 6 meters high, the beauty can be pitted.

4. Twin Tancak Waterfall

What is unique about this waterfall is its estuary which is full of lumps of foam, as well as used water containing detergent. But this foam doesn't come from laundry soap. The source of water that comes from Mount Ijen and mixed with sulfur makes its mouth full of white clumps like foam. This sulfur waterfall is set against a rocky cliff that is also no less beautiful. Unfortunately you are recommended not to bathe here because the sulfur content is very high. However, nothing prevents you from taking pictures on the background of exotic cliffs.

This tree with the scientific name Eucalyptus deglupta actually does have a multicolored stem like a rainbow. The colors on the trunk of the tree come from the sap that comes out of the tree and hits the bark and forms a layer of color.

Oh yeah, another unique feature of this waterfall is its yellowish green water. And from the name, you can guess that the water tastes bitter.
