Home Kulon Progo Kiskendo Cave
Some 35 kilometres at northwest side of Yogyakarta, on a hill at the northern side of Kulon Progo Regency, a small fine asphalt road leads to Kiskendo Cave. Only a small kind of four-wheeled vehicles can reach the cave. Those who visit the cave with a bus must leave the vehicle at Niten Village, close to Giri Mulyo sub-district office, about 8 kilometres from the cave.
On the way to the cave, visitors may enjoy the charming scenery along the windy road. Valleys, green farmland, and simple rural traditional houses reflect the traditional atmosphere in which the people live. Entering the Kiskendo Cave, visitors will be greeted by wonderful stalactites and stalagmites like limestone do mostly have. According to the legend, the natural shape of the cave was once the palace of two giants by the names of Mahesa Suro and Lembu Suro who were defeated by Subali as portrayed in the relief at the front of the cave.
