Purworejo Things to Do: 10 reviews and 36 photos
Curug Muncar is one of two important waterfalls in Purworejo regency, the one least visited. It lies in the north of the regency, you have to travel a secundary road and then still walk an hour.
We liked the route to get there, but were somewhat disappointed by the site itself. In the first place the waterfall comes down amid big boulders, no pool to take a bath let alone swim in. Secondly, most of the original forest along the path to the waterfall has been cut down in recent years, as a villager we met readily admitted. He said there were plans for replanting, but that will not restore what has been destroyed.
In Kutoarjo, west of Purworejo, take the road north to Bruno and Wonosobo. Past Bruno you cross Rabung river on a steel bridge, then soon on your left the waterfall is visible in the distance. At 30 km from Kutoarjo there is a small hamlet with a wooden porch on the left, no signboard. It is best to park here and start walking the road that starts at the porch, it soon becomes impassable for an ordinary car. Eventually the road changes into a footpath. When you get an irrigation ditch on your right, cross it at the second occasion, where there is a steep path uphill. After a 3 km 1 hour walk you reach the waterfall.
Address: Kaliwungu village, Bruno district
