Exploring Tirai Hujan
The most common thing to do in Tirai Hujan Waterfall is to enjoy sightseeing. The height is about 3-4 meters, so it looks majestic indeed. For a better experience, it is recommended to conduct photography there. Taking good pictures of the waterfall is one thing. It is because other beautiful objects are available on the site, so tourists can choose them as a good background for their photos. What is more?
Aside from sightseeing and photography, tourists can play water and take a bath on the natural pond located below the waterfall. The water is refreshing and clean, after all. Somehow, it helps tourists to relax and get rid of stresses at once. The only consideration is that they must avoid getting in the pond during the rainy season. The flow of water becomes swifter and it a little bit uncomfortable for people to take a bath under the waterfall.
Tirai Hujan Waterfall not only becomes an interesting tourist spot, but it has become a water source alternative to the locals. That means villagers take advantage of the water for various purposes including bathing and washing. What is more? According to the rumor, the waterfall may disappear during the dry season.
