Dusun Gelaran 1, Desa Bejiharjo, GunungKidul, Indonesia
Pindul Cave is located in Bejiharjo village in Gunungkidul district, Yogyakarta Province. This cave was opened for public in 2010. The name "œPindul" comes from a legend saying that there was a boy named Joko Singlulung looking for his father in the cave and hit his head in this cave. "œPindul" is derived from "œpipi kejendul", javanese for "œhitting your cheek".
This cave is very beautiful for there are many crystal-white stalactites and stalagmites. One of which is called the "œStalactite Gong", if you hit it it will sound like a gong (javanese instrument). At the end of the cave is a large space with an opening above which makes this place very exotic with the sunlight coming through from above.
