Umbul Ponggok is a must to visit when you go to Solo, Klaten or Yogyakarta. The entrance ticket is only Rp. 15.000 per person, and taking under water is not only cheap but stunning, love it so much.

It was a nice experience to be here with friends. I brought my friends and clients at the same time and they loved this place pretty much. Need more tourism touch, especially for Europeans.
