Sri Gethuk Waterfall is well known as Green Canyon of Jogja, because it has beautiful nature similar to Grand Canyon, USA. The waterfall is a never stop water fall flowing through the gushes between gorges all around the year. The waterfall is so beautiful and exotic, though, the atmosphere around it is so mystical. It was said that the name of Sri Gethuk referred to a storage location of gamelan instruments (traditional instruments of Java) owned by a demon hosted the waterfall. The demon is named Onggo Menduro or simply called Mbah Onggo. Mbah Onggo is the leader of demons hosting the waterfall. The waterfall has an incredible panorama. The waterfall and the river flowing from the waterfall present fantastic panoramic view.

Sri Gethuk Waterfall is situated in Wisala Beleberan Village, Playen District, Gunung Kidul Regency. To reach the waterfall, you have to be careful since the roads towards the waterfall are not always in good condition. You better go by motorcycle to the waterfall as it is much safer and faster.

When you have arrived at the waterfall, you can see the most fantastic view of the area of Gunung Kidul. The scenery is like that of Grand Canyon in Arizona. The formation of ravines and steep cliffs are so incredible especially with the river flowing from the waterfall. The river is so green and it divides the canyon and the beautiful waterfall. The waterfall never stops flowing throughout the year. It allows you to explore the entire waterfall.
