Jomblang Cave

Jomblang Cave

Jomblang Cave is a vertical cave type collapse doline. This cave was formed due to the geological process of land subsidence along with the vegetation on it to the bottom of the earth that occurred thousands of years ago. This collapse formed a sinkhole or wells which in Javanese are known as luweng. That is what makes it unique because in the cave there is a cave mouth area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout 50 meters which is often referred to by the name Luweng Jomblang. Jomblang Cave is located in Gunungkidul Regency, DI Yogyakarta.

Currently Jomblang Cave is a place of conservation of ancient plants and was developed into a special interest tourist attraction which is managed by residents or local residents. To descend this vertical cave, the management has provided complete equipment according to caving safety standards in the vertical cave. Sunlight that broke through from Luweng Grubug as high as 90 meters formed a pillar of light, illuminating the beautiful flowstone and the depth of the cave that was pitch black. Water that drips from a height also beautifies the view. It is not wrong if many people are amazed to come here when witnessing natural paintings known as "the light of heaven".
