When exploring Yogyakarta City, tourists should not forget to drop by in Prambanan Sub-District of Sleman Regency. Aside from offering beautiful temples, that area is also known for its Tebing Breksi or the Breccia Cliff. The exact location is in Sambirejo Village and it resides near to several famous temples like Prambanan, Ratu Boko, Candi Ijo, and Kalasan Temple. This majestic cliff is popular among tourists due to the excellent nuance and amazing landscapes, actually. No wonder, all visitors are likely to enjoy sightseeing and photography there. Some tourists also take advantage of the site for an exploration!
For the information, Tebing Breksi was once used as a mining site. However, it was abandoned and left an amazing landscape for tourism. The local government also takes a good care of it and provides several improvements, especially when it comes to ornaments. For example, tourists may find a unique dragon carving located on the top of the cliff. From that spot, they can also witness an amazing panorama! Have no worries. Iron fences surround the cliff, so tourists can explore the site safely.
The first benefit that tourists can get when visiting Tebing Breksi is definitely the history. According to the locals, the cliff was formed due to the volcanic ash deposits of Nglanggeran Ancient Volcano. The local government also conducted a mining activity there back then. However, they stopped it in 2015. These days, instead of being a mining site, Tebing Breksi has become a new attractive place to spend a vacation with families. The parking area is vast and it features several basic facilities as well. No wonder, lots of tourists keep coming either during weekends or regular day.
The best part is indeed the peak of Tebing Breksi. It offers spending panoramas and great landscapes for sightseeing too! Not to mention tourists may find several beautiful carvings up there. Both local government and artists made those! Numerous shapes of carvings can be seen including dragons, wayang, and much more! Don’t forget to take photos of these later! In the afternoon, visitors can also watch the beautiful sunset! Other amazing views are Prambanan and Baron Temple on the horizon. Everyone won’t feel bored there, for sure.
