#3 of 19 in Things to do in Pacitan
Named after a gigantic stalactite that produces a gong-like sound when struck, Gong Cave is known for its five "magical" pools, allegedly possessing healing powers. The cave, with the lowest point 256 m (840 ft) beneath the surface, features 12 rooms and seven natural springs. Notice how colorful lights illuminate the interior, but hold on to the railings while walking down the stairs to prevent slipping and falling. Bring or rent a flashlight, and take advantage of the area's souvenir shops, restaurants, and parking area.

  • One of the tourist charms in Pacitan is Gua Gong, which is not inferior to that of overseas. Named Gua Gong because in a certain part of the form stalactite/stalagmite when at the end will sound like a Gong sound, which is a kind of traditional Javanese musical instruments. The view in the cave is really beautiful because of the floodlights, and comfortable because of the stairs to see the beauty of the cave.
