Friend, our country has a variety of vacation destinations that are worth visiting, you know. The goals also vary, there are cafes, restaurants, hotels, beaches or mountains, there are also museum complexes, Maria Caves, Keraton, temples, and other historical relics.
Many anthropologists have researched each region in our country. However, it is said that even though the homework on research in our own country has been started many years ago, this big homework has not been completed, my friend.
Indonesia still has a million mysteries tucked away in treasure boxes. Of course, we must protect and preserve these assets so that they can support the progress of our country.
Friends, this time we will also open up one of the privileges of our country. No less, you know, the Joglosemar area (Jogja, Solo, Semarang), Cilacap, Cirebon, Tawang Mangu, and nearby areas. Come see a little review in the article!
Colleagues, we take a brief trip to the Central Java region. This province is also known for the location of the Diengnya highlands friends. Well, on the route there are also tourist locations that are suitable for us to visit, the name is Semar Cave.
Semar Cave is one of the natural places in the Pengilon Lake and Telaga Warna Nature Park in Wonosobo. Semar Cave is located at the top of the hill, in the middle of the two lakes.
We, who come from Cilacap and Cirebon, can really find it on Google Maps. No need to bother looking for the route, friends.
The Dieng Plateau area is often known as the ‘Europe’ of Central Java, even Indonesia. Because the location of Dieng is the highest plain in Java, this area is known as the Village Above the Clouds. Almost every day it is always covered by fog.
When colleagues come in certain months, we will even feel extreme temperatures in the Dieng Plateau. We can also find snowflakes easily, no need to go abroad, my friend.
Some people also consider this area to have a fairly thick mystery or mystical nuance. Likewise, the holiday destination that we are discussing this time, Semar Caves. It’s really (very often) that the myths are discussed in the community.
If you come to this place or see some photos from the internet, you will know that the mouth of Semar Cave is covered by an iron fence and a door. Apparently not everyone can enter this place freely, my friend.
This is because Semar Cave is still considered sacred by many people. Several historical stories tell that in the past, several Javanese kings and officials had meditated or meditated in Semar Cave.
This is similar to what has happened in other cave-like areas in Indonesia. Most of the caves were used by ancient people as a means or place for meditation.
One of the Indonesian political figures and leaders who had meditated in Goa Semar was the Second President of the Republic of Indonesia, Soeharto, in 1974.
If comrades peek through the gap between the fence and the iron door, we will see that the size inside the cave is not very large. Approximately the area is only about 4 m2. Of course, not many can enter together with friends.
Friends, for those of us who know the origins and culture of the Dieng Plateau area or in the Java region, of course colleagues can already guess that most of the tourist sites on this island must have legends.
In general, people associate legends about an area with Javanese puppet stories. The same thing happened at this Semar Cave tourist spot. The community also relates it to the wayang story, namely the character Semar.
This is according to its name, Semar Cave. In this place, a hair-shaving procession was also carried out for children with dreadlocks (or so-called anak gembel) in the Dieng Plateau.
For friends who want to visit Semar Cave, we don’t have to pay too expensive ticket fees, it’s only enough to give around Rp. 2,000 as a levy for tourist attractions.
In addition, colleagues can also visit nearby destinations such as Sumur Caves, Penganting, and Horses. There are also many other destinations that are no less beautiful.
Ah yes, when you are in the Dieng Plateau area, Wonosobo, don’t forget to enjoy Golden Sunrise and Sunset, friends. Guaranteed we will be very sorry if we miss this moment while we are there.
This incomparable beauty deserves to be introduced to the wider community, either by using photos or videos. We can also write articles that review its beauty too.
