HomeBlogs Bledug Kuwu Bledug Kuwu is one of tourist attractions in Wirosari area in Grobogan
Region, Purwodadi, Central Java. Bledug Kuwu is a local name for
something that burst in pool. This is rather strange pool that far from
volcano. The vapor burst came from carbon dioxide release. The
temperature is mild. Visitors might experience a stunning natural
occurrence of small, frequent bursts from mud crate with a sound
resembling a mount eruption. This natural phenomenon is resulted from
geothermal motion inside the earth bed. Witness said that a big burst
could even create small quakes that quiver the area.
looks like just another muddy pond. But every one or two minutes, the
placid water erupts in an explosion of mud, followed by a plume of
white steam. The pond is located just off the alternative road
connecting Purwodadi and Cepu in Central Java, on a site measuring some
4.5 hectares. Bledug Kuwu has become a tourist attraction in the area.
The visitors can watch the geyser from a distance of between 10 meters
and 20 meters. The eruptions of water and mud shift positions from time
to time. But there are two spots where the geyser regularly erupts. The
locals call the one in the east Mbah (Grandpa) Jokotua and the one in
the west Mbah (Grandma) Rodenok. They have given the spots where the
geyser erupts names, as they believe that the place is sacred.
