Gunung Kidul

4
Rugged limestone hills thinly carpeted with green scrub characterize the region of Gunung Kidul. Caves, sinkholes, and underground rivers riddle the land, ripe for exploring. Where the hills reach the coast, they drop off in dramatic cliffs and bluffs. White and black sand beaches run up and down this wild and weathered coastline, many isolated and empty of fellow travelers. The pockmarked rock faces attract climbers, while the rough waves bring surfers. A few temples, archeological sites, and historical buildings dot the region, but natural attractions really drive Gunung Kidul tourism. Rice doesn't grow well in the sparse soil, so cassava replaces it as the staple of local cuisine. Regional delicacies include crispy fried grasshopper. Gunung Kidul is in Java.
