The beautiful and powerful Madakaripura waterfall is one of several waterfalls in the Bromo-Tenger-Semeru National Park. It is a 200 m high waterfall with rainfalls flowing down the walls of a green cylindrical canyon. To be precise, Madakaripura is a complex of seven waterfalls, the main of which falls from a height of 200 m. At the bottom of the waterfall, the water no longer flows in trickles but turns into mist from splashes.
The way to the waterfall takes about 20 minutes, it is about 1 km and almost half of the way to overcome in the rain of splashes that spread from the falls. Sometimes the road runs along the riverbed and you have to be careful, because it is very slippery and you can fall. Stock up on a raincoat and be ready to soak your feet. The last 50 meters under the waterfall is constantly drizzling and the water is deeper than the ankle. Usually the waterfalls of Southeast Asia are small and not impressive, rather natural spas. But Madakaripura looks majestic and awful. This feeling is accentuated by the gorge into which the main stream descends. The place looks mysterious and dangerous, so it is.
A journey to Madakaripura is better planned for the morning. Rains in the mountains can fill a shallow mountain river in the afternoon and turn it into a powerful roaring mountain stream, while trees can fall from the height of the main waterfall, gaining enough speed below to kill a man. The wreckage of fallen trees lies at the edges of the pool, into which the main cascade flows.
