    It is amazing itinerary! I have noticed that umbul ponggok is not included in your website. I have seen pictures around the internet and it looks stunning. Will you recommend it and is it accessible for tourist as it is a commonly visited place and tourist would not have difficulty finding it?

    Just wondering, would it really be possible to do all of this in one day? How long does it take to get from Jomblang cave to Timang beach? And from Timang beach to Nglambor? Thanks!

      Hi,

      No, it’s not possible to do in one day.
      Here the right options:
      1. Jomblang cave, Timang beach and Bintang hill sunset (if possible and depend on the traffic).
      2. Jomblang cave, Nglambor beach and Bintang hill sunset (if possible and depend on the traffic).
      3. Timang beach, Nglambor beach and Bintang hill sunset (if possible and depend on the traffic).

      Since the Jomblang cave has stick time because they looking the best angle of the sun (heaven light).
      At least you have to arrive at 9 am at Jomblang and leaving the cave at 1.30 pm.
      It makes whole destinations can not be done in one day.

      About 1 hours trip from Jomblang to Timang beach.
      About 30 minutes trip from Timang to Nglambor beach.
      Well, sometime it would be more than your time expectation cause the road so rocky and slippery in wet season.
      Sometime small vehicle can not allowed to pass the road cause too dangerous.
      They will offering special transport to the beach.

          Hi Daniel,

          I have no idea about how much the taxi motor from nearest village to Timang beach.
          But, usually the taxi motor waiting at the last asphalt road.
          They will bring you start from rocky road to Timang beach.
          You need to pay IDR50K per person for their services.
          This taxi motor exist since two months ago.
          Seems this policy applied by village to empower the young people who have no jobs.

          I think the cost of taxi motor from nearest village to Timang beach should be more than IDR50K.

          Cheers.
