Coban Pelangi


A 30-meter high waterfall situated east of Malang, at the foot of Mount Semeru. This destination can be visited on the way to Mount Bromo.

One of the few unexploited secrets of East Java. Located about 32 km east from Malang. A hidden beauty surrounded by a pine forest. It has natural, cool, and clean water. Don’t forget to take a dip it’s very refreshing. Protected your camera because the splashes is really big you’ll get wet even if you’re standing far.

I came here on my way to Mount Bromo. It’s a great place to relax specially from a 15 hours economy train rides. It take about a half an hour walk from the main road to the site. The track is fairly easy. You can walk at ease while enjoying the pine forest. Sometimes you saw monkeys spying on you.

The air is cool and so does the water. But you wouldn’t care. Taking a dip is very tempting when looking at the clear water. And it’s proven by yours truly that it is refreshing. One other thing is you cannot be dry in this place. With water falling from 30 meters the splashes is really big, you’re going to get wet anyway even if you’re standing far. So don’t forget to protected your camera.
