Traveling is my other favorite thing to do beside doing the skincare routine. There won’t be a limitation of the travel destination as long as they have a fresh air and interesting sceneries. The peaceful feeling will follow the destination aura and the good mood will be existed.
Few months ago, I went to Surakarta (Central Java) to celebrate Idul Fitri with my family. Then, I continue to travel to out of the Surakarta city for the exploration purpose. I want to explore more about the area surround Surakarta and I also want to check whether there are some unique tourist attractions that can be interested for Local and International tourists.
When people hear about Central Java, they mostly think about Borobudur temple or Prambanan in Jogjakarta, culinary attraction in Surakarta, and other famous tourist attractions. Have you ever heard Karanganyar area? It is still located in Central Java and it takes around 2 – 3 hours drive from Surakarta city. There are many tourist attractions in Karanganyar, especially related with cultural and sceneries. One of the place that was attracted my eye is Lembah Semilir. It is located in valley of the slopes of Mount Lawu. You may imagine how cool is the air in the area. Lembah Semilir is famous with Hobbit House attraction, so you don’t have to go to New Zealand just to visit the Hobbit House. However, there are many cute spots, such as Dutch windmills, a tree house and other creative spots, which made from bamboo material that are great for photo documentation.
Beside those cute spots, the scenery is also very beautiful as it is located in the middle of a tea garden. Therefore, you can see the best view from the hill with green surround. I really love the view as well as I am able to breathe fresh air.
Lots of Challenge in Lembah Semilir Footpath
As I have said before that there are many cute spots in Lembah Semilir but those won’t be easy to reach. The footpath was very slippery and steep. I could say that the footpath was not very comfortable to walk on.
