Kedung Ingas Waterfall in Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta
It is common sense that Kulon Progo Regency has lots of natural attractions for tourists to visit during their spare time especially holidays. Among others, the most famous ones are waterfalls! As for the reference, there is Kedung Ingas Waterfall in Sidorejo Village. In terms of region, it belongs to Lendah Sub-District. The locals often come to the site in order to enjoy its exotic beauty and serene atmosphere, actually. These explain why visitors are likely to spend relaxation and photography once arriving at the site. Some of them also love to conduct an exploration and family recreation during weekends.
The only challenge is the location, which is a little bit secluded (which is in the midst of a small forest). In fact, only nearby villagers are aware of the location. Thus, tourists should take advantage of the help of a local guide when heading to the spot. Once arriving at the site, the beautiful waterfall welcomes them right away! It also comes with a refreshing natural pond located under the waterfall. Do not forget the site is surrounded by lush plants and trees, so the atmosphere feels so soothing and cool. In terms of size, the waterfall has a moderate height and comes with a slow water discharge. It becomes stronger during the rainy season, though.
Exploring Kedung Ingas Waterfall
In terms of appearance, Kedung Ingas is indeed different from Kedung Pedut Waterfall. Despite the difference, it emits a unique charm. Plus, it comes with several facilities including a toilet where tourists can change clothes after bathing at the nearby natural pond. After all, everyone is likely to get in the pond once they arrive at the site. It is because the water is quite clear and so refreshing! It even feels more refreshing in the morning!
Aside from bathing and playing water, people also come to Kedung Ingas Waterfall to enjoy the beauty of nature. It can be as simple as sightseeing or a more interesting activity like photography. Not only the site offers the beautiful waterfall, but it also comes with other natural objects like shady trees and clean river. The good thing is the waterfall is located near to Progo River, which is quite accessible for everyone. Thus, tourists should not miss the chance to visit the river later.
The next recommended thing to do in Kedung Ingas Waterfall is fishing. In this case, tourists should carry a fishing rod and other required items including the bait. Another consideration is the location. They won’t get many fishes at the pond, though. Instead, it is recommended to visit Progo River and fish there. The result would be more satisfying on that spot. Also, the ambiance becomes merrier if they conduct fishing with either families or villagers!
