Get around

By public minivans.


  • Gua [Cave] Selomangleng
  • A number of Hindu temples/historical relics of an ancient kingdom.
  • Air Terjun [Waterfall] Dolo, located on the eastern slope of Gunung [Mount] Wilis, some 20 km west of Kediri. Drive west from the town centre [crossing the Brantas River along the way, and passing through the Semen Bus Station] towards Pohsarang. About 5 km before Pohsarang you will see a fork. If you are heading towards this waterfall, take a left turn. [WARNING: the first 50 metres of this road, past the fork, is quite steep].

For more details about Pohsarang, please see below.


  • Christians and Catholics can visit Pohsarang for a pilgrimage or simply enjoy the beauty of a traditionally designed, Hindu-Javanese style church complex. It is notable for being the site of a famous Maria Grotto [the cave of Mary the mother of Jesus Christ] and a spring equipped with several water taps, where you can get some water [ready to drink] after saying a prayer. It is believed that praying here and taking some water from this spring ensures that your wish will come true.

There is also a series of "Stations of the Cross" [known locally as "Jalan Salib" = Way of the Cross] with beautiful sculptures depicting various stages of Christ's crucifixion.

NOTE: There are some touts offering souvenirs especially during the high season - ignore them! Souvenir shops and eateries abound.
