The Terwang caves (Goa Terawang, there are six of them) are situated in a teak forest at 170 m elevation. Even in the dry season the air is relatively cool here.
The roof of the main cave has collapsed in places, therefore you can walk from lighted space to lighted space even without a torchlight.
It is said that in colonial times the Dutch arranged parties here. However, we visited during the wet season, and the bottom was much too muddy to think of partying.
There are fine views and in the vicinity is an artifical lake.
The Javanese have always been resourceful in making the utmost of the resources nature provided them with. In Pondok village runs an underground river, functioning as the bathing place of the village.
You get here going further inland from the Terawang caves, past Sumberagung village.
Sendang Wangi means: odorous water hole. The sulfur smell is not unpleasant though, not very strong. The hole is deep, over 2 m. The water is clear, you can see it stirring at the bottom.
Sendang Wangi is near Sumberagung village. Ask for it when you reach this village going inland from the Terawang caves.
