Exploring Kebon Agung
The most activity to do in Kebon Agung Village is natural exploration, as various types of beautiful landscapes reside there. These include farms, hills, and many others. Even a trip to reach the village is quite worthy for visitors. At the first time, they may see a pink gate at the entrance of the village. This spot usually becomes a background for selfies among visitors, so do not miss the opportunity to take pictures of it later.
From the gate, tourists should walk for about 50 – 70 meters to get to the main spot of attraction. Here is the fact. Along the way, they may see several villagers who work on their farms too. These people look welcoming and they often give a smile to tourists or wave at them in a friendly manner. The thing is that local farmers are not always available to meet, as they have a working schedule as well. In order to deal with this issue, tourists should talk to their tour guide first before visiting the village (which is quite recommended).
The next allure of Kebon Agung Village is the presence of Goa Ndalem Hill, located above the site. No wonder, tourists are able to see such majestic hill from the village and take pictures of it freely. Later, they even have the chance to enjoy trekking and explore the hill with the help of a villager!
