      Hi,

      Yup, still possible to do cave tubing at Kalisuci even only 2 persons.
      But, the price will be IDR 350k for all of you.
      They charges IDR 350k as minimum rate for the operational.
      Except, you wait for other traveler, so the total number will be 5 persons or more,
      then you will pay IDR 70k per pax only.
      Or you do cave tubing on the weekend, so you will pay IDR 70k per pax only.

      Regards

          No need booking for cave tubing at Kalisuci.
          Except mass travelers or big number of travelers.
          So, what you need to do is,
          just arrive on the site, pay and do cave tubing.

        1. kunzyogya Post author

          Hola,

          Well, we don’t sure about the time at Cemplung warung.
          It depend on the traveler spend their time in each destination.
          The driver can fetch you in the meeting point before to Kalisuci.

          On the car #1, the available seat just for 1 person only.
          1 car for 5 persons only cause the comfort reason.

          Cheers.

      Yes, it’s ok since you gonna wear life vest and the tube,
      you will floating on the water.

      Something that you have to worry in the rainy season is the water level in the cave.
      If the water level so high, then you are not allowed to enter the cave and do the cave tubing.

      1. kunzyogya Post author

        I prefer Kalisuci because it’s more exciting and more beautiful.
        But, on the wet season Kalisuci sometime forbidden for cave tubing due the water level increasing.
        In this case, you can take Pindul cave tubing as alternative option.
