This waterfall, which is known as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Indonesia, has a height of up to 120 meters. The flowing water not only comes out of one or two paths but there are several river paths that pile up and end up becoming waterfalls. This is what finally makes this waterfall called “Tumpak Sewu” which means “stacked up to thousands”

With a height that reaches 120 meters, the falling water looks like a beautiful giant curtain covering the cliff. This waterfall is located in a steep valley with an elevation of 500 meters above sea level. Furthermore, the Tumpak Sewu waterfall is formed from the flow of the Glidih River which originates at Mount Semeru.

Because of the many rivers that become waterfalls, Tumpak Sewu is often referred to as the Niagara Falls of Indonesia. Local and foreign tourists often make this waterfall a mandatory destination when visiting East Java.
