HomeBlogs Pancuran Pitu Baturaden is a natural attraction at Banyumas, Central Java on the north

minutes. 2 kilometers from baturaden there is a hot spring waterfall
called Pancuran Pitu. Pancuran means douche or small waterfall, while
pitu means seven.
This tourism destination is on the slope of
Mount Slamet. For people from the tropical country, its temperature is
cold enough, about 18° Celsius – 25° Celsius. Going there on the rainy
season is a bad decision, the best is on the dry season so that we can
explore the jungle or climb Mount Slamet. The entry ticket is
IDR7,500 for domestic visitor and IDR15,000 for the foreign visitors.
Here, tourist may enjoy the hot spring water, Sarabadak Cave, Mountain
View and enjoy the fresh air.Since the water is sulphuric, many people
use it to cure skin problems. The people usually take a bath at the
waterfall or just immersing their feet in the pool. The yellow color is
caused by the sulfur that remains on the stone. The water’s temperature
is about 60° Celcius, hot but its really fun to immerse our feet. It
seems that the water relax the nerves. When we are tired, we can pay a
massager to massage our body for about IDR15,000.

was there, I booked Madurodam Hotel. The price is starting from

food and I can sleep well.
