What to see Jomblang Cave?
Jomblang cave is connected by underground tunnel/hall for 500m length to another cave system called Grubuk cave. What people want to catch the most in this Grubuk cave is the phenomenon of sunlight come into this cave through the air with 100% of humidity, and the sunlight looks bounded and they call it The Heaven’s ray or Light of Heaven. There is also a river in this cave base, 30m slope from the edge of the barrier called Suci river with 10m width streaming down to the Southern sea. The current strength makes this river cannot be accessed, also because the slope is too slippery.
