Exploring Bentang Waterfall

Thanks to the refreshing water and stunning nuance.
The next unique allure of Bentang Waterfall is related to the source of water. According to the locals, Bentang was formed due to the presence of another waterfall located above it! However, an access to get to such waterfall is quite difficult and it seems impossible for people to get there. Not only it is located on a hill, it also features a dangerous route.
