The Goa Jomblang day tour is an Indiana Jones style adventure (ok, maybe Lara Croft). You’ll be lowered 60 meters into a sinkhole. Explore a hidden forest. Trek for more than 50 meters through a dark tunnel using only a flashlight. At the end of the tunnel you’ll enter a cave the size of a cathedral. A beam of light coming from a hole in the roof cuts through the darkness. As soon as you step into the light you’ll
level up or get a great photo. In the afternoon you can take a traditional cable car over the ocean in Timang Beach, go cave tubing or visit a waterfall.
The Gua Jomblang tour starts at 7:30 am and lasts a full day. You do the caving in the morning and an additional activity in the afternoon. Popular places to visit include Gua Pindul where you can do cave tubing and Timang Beach. You’ll need a car for this day tour. We’ll arrange a 12 hour car rental with gas and an English speaking driver for you. The cost of the car rental is Rp 800,000. This tour will be one of the highlights of your holiday.

The Important Facts
The Goa Jomblang package is a one day tour. Our driver will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the caves. It’s a 90 minute drive from Yogyakarta to the Goa Jomblang resort. When you arrive you have a safety briefing and you’ll be provided with a helmet, rubber boots and the safety harness you get lowered in.
To enter the caves you need to be lowered 60 meters over the edge of a cliff. It’s a 60 meter drop to the bottom of the sinkhole. Strapped into your safety harness you’ll be lowered into the forest. It is a bit scary, but it’s perfectly safe. When you arrive at the bottom you trek through a tunnel to Goa Jomblang cave. You’ll have 30-60 minutes to explore the cave before returning to the surface.
From start to finish the Goa Jomblang caving takes around 3 hours. The only time you can do this tour in the morning. They provide you with lunch after the caving. You can combine Goa Jomblang with one of a range of other activities. Some of the favourites include visiting Goa Pindul where you can go cave tubing and going to Timang Beach for the cable car. Whatever activity you choose to do in the afternoon, at the end of the day the driver will drop you off back at your hotel in Yogyakarta.
