This waterfall is believed to be the sacred waterfall since it was right here that the Great Prime Minister of Majapahit, Gajah Mada, spent the rest of his life and practiced asceticism by meditating under this waterfall. Paying a visit to this object and enjoying the lush mountain greenery would be an unforgettable experience. Words cannot describe the magnificent Madakaripura adequately.
This object, with a height of 620 m above the sea level, is on a gentle slope with a friendly atmosphere. You can feel the roar as the water falls from a height of 200 m creating an awe-inspiring waterfall. It is more likely a happening of something that takes place in a fairy land.
The best time to see the falls is between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun is high enough to light up the valley's bottom. One may bathe in the falls' pure natural water, which, it is said, cures rheumatism and all kinds of disorders besides preserving youth and vigor.
During the rainy season, visitors will have to be careful as overflowing may occur occasionally. Attention should be paid to notes of warning. This waterfall, which is quite easy to be visited, is just 6 km from Sukapura, the gateway of Mt. Bromo (www. petra.ac.id)

Featuring a variety of traditional and contemporary performances, the festival took place on the western slope of Mount Merbabu.
The cultural festival is largely a community event akin to a country fair, and thousands of residents from Mt. Merbabu, Mt. Merapi, Mt. Andong, Mt. Sumbing and Mt.Menoreh - who also, organized the festivities - arrived to revel in and cheer on the day's activities. ( The Jakarta Post, Sunday, October 1, 2006, pg. 24)
Thousands of Tengger tribespeople, along with domestic and foreign tourists who had come to witness the annual festival, gathered on Sept. 7 for the ritual procession up the mountain.
The Tengger are believed to be descendants of a 15th-century princess of the declining Majapahit kingdom, Roro Anteng, and her husband Joko Seger, who fled to eastern Java's Tengger mountains. According to legend, the childless couple climbed the volcano and prayed to Bromo's god, who granted their wish for children on condition that they would sacrifice their youngest to its crater.
This year's Kasada was colored by the heightened alert status of Mt. Bromo, from Level 2 (Code Yellow) to Level 3 (Code Orange). With a possible eruption hanging over the festivities, the start of Kasada was delayed several hours as the Tengger people prayed to calm the sacred volcano - but without any visible effect.
An eruption is taken as a sign that the god is very angry. "It is our hope that nothing untoward will occur during this Kasada," said a festival participant.
And this hope was fulfilled as the ritual procession made its way across the desert plain - the Sand Sea - surrounding Bromo and up through the cloud-covered, chilly heights to its peak.
There, Tengger shamans prayed as others amassed the offerings they had carried up the volcano's slopes, then released them into the gaping crater. (The Jakarta Post, Sunday, September 24, 2006, pg. 20)
