Tumpak Sewu Waterfall (also known as Coban Sewu) is arguably Indonesia’s best waterfall. It isn’t the largest, even in East Java, but is definitely the most impressive. From above it looks like the tree of life, from below it is immensely powerful and from all angles, it is quite simply mindblowing

How to get to Tumpak Sewu waterfall

SOME INFORMATION ABOUT | Tumpak Sewu waterfall:

  • Village Location: Sidomulyo / Sidorenggo
  • Closest major cities: Malang (2-hour drive) / Surabaya (5-hour drive)
  • Waterfall height: 120 meters – 394 feet
  • Entrance Fees: 10,000 Rp. each, ($0.75) + 5,000 for parking.

Where is Tumpak Sewu waterfall

One of the reasons Tumpak Sewu is not that crowded with visitors is that it is not really close to any major cities. Located in East Java, Indonesia, Tumpak Sewu is right on the edge of the Lumajang Regency.

The waterfall is located 2 hours southeast of Malang, 3.5 hours southeast of Surabaya, and 3.5 hours south of Cemoro Lawang.

If you are looking for the exact address of Tumpak Sewu, here is the official one from Google Maps:

Jl. Raya Dampit-Lumajang No.16, Besukcukit, Sidomulyo, Pronojiwo, Kabupaten Lumajang, Jawa Timur 67374, Indonesia

Packing List Tumpak Sewu waterfall

Although you may just be visiting a waterfall, there are a few essentials that I would bring along with you to better prepare yourself for the trek down to Tumpak Sewu.

1) Dry Bag: since you will be getting wet during this experience I would highly recommend a dry bag to keep all your valuables safe. Take a look at this Earth Park Dry Bag to hold your belongings.

2) Hiking Shoes or Closed Toe Sandals: you will want to watch your step as you go down the slippery path into the valley. Having hiking shoes or closed-toe sandals will be your best bet here. I would not recommend going down with flip-flops. Take a look at the Keen Targhee III that I have been wearing recently or these Keen Newport H2 Sandals.

3) GoPro: if you want to get up and close to Tumpuk Sewu (and some of the other waterfalls in the valley) you will get wet. With that said, your camera equipment may get wet as well.

4) Quick Dry Towel: after getting all wet down in the bottom of the valley, it is nice to have a towel to dry off.

The trail down to the Tumpak Sewu waterfall

The hike down to the base of the falls will take you through the lush rainforest in Lumajang. The trail is a bit of a challenge which makes the adventure all the more fun. It can be very slippery when wet and some parts of the trail are quite steep so make sure to have three points of contact at all times when making the descent.

There are bamboo bridges, metal railings, and ropes fixed into the side of the cliffs to aid you along the way down to the waterfall. In one section you will have to get your feet wet as you walk across a running stream that flows down and across the cliff face.

Goa Tetes Waterfall

In the same valley, you can find another epic set of falls named Goa Tetes. A small cave behind this set of falls makes this spot unique and worth a quick visit before making the hike back up the cliffs.
