Tlogo Putri Pond in Pakem Sub-District, Yogyakarta - Indonesia
When people hear about Kaliurang Indonesia, most of them may think about a famous tourist area located in the north of Yogyakarta Special Region. Due to its refreshing nuance and beautiful nature, the location becomes the tour agencies’ top list of vacation destinations in Yogyakarta. One of the attractions is Tlogo Putri Pond, which resides in Hargobinangun Village, Pakem Sub-District. This small pond or dam becomes a good site for families and those who love serenity. Kids would love to spend some time there due to the presence of fun facilities like slides, see-saw, swings, etc.
In terms of size, Tlogo Putri Pond is indeed small but it has many beautiful features including the park, trees, flowers, a bridge, gazebos, etc. The water looks calm but visitors are not allowed to swim in it. The location of the pond is on 900 meters above the sea level, actually. This explains why the atmosphere feels so fresh and comfy. Another fact is that the pond shares the same location with a famous hill called Plawangan Turgo. No wonder, visitors are likely to go trekking later at such location after exploring the pond.
Exploring Tlogo Putri Pond
Here is the question. What can people do in Tlogo Putri? The first attraction is the presence of entertainment stage, which shows traditional performances every week. The best thing is that tourists can enjoy them freely (without any fee). For those who want to eat something, nearby “warungs” is available where they can enjoy delicious foods like rabbit meat satay, Jadah Tempe, and Tongseng. Have no worries. Those foods don’t cost much, so everyone can enjoy them well.
The next recommended activity to do in Tlogo Putri Pond is to conduct trekking and visit nearby attractions like Watu Kemloso and Tlogo Muncar Waterfall. For those who do not like tiring activities, they can simply relax and watch the scenery from the bridge. Even the views of flowers are quite satisfying. Families with kids can take advantage of available fun facilities like swings and flying fox, as well. Once again, visitors can use them freely. What they need to do is to take care of the environment when enjoying any kind of activities on the site.
A family recreation like eating lunch together is possible. However, they must pick the right spot to do it. Not to mention Tlogo Putri becomes too crowded during holidays and weekends. For those who do not like the crowd, they can explore nearby forest and enjoy its serenity, accompanied by several monkeys.
