Do you want to get more than just a vacation? Watu Lumbung Educational Village can be an option for holiday. It is located in Prangtritis Hill, Kretek, Bantul, Yogyakarta, Watu Lambung offers such a beautiful scenery in Yogyakarta and an unforgettable educational tour.
Watu Lumbung Educational Village was established in 2003 by Muhammad Boy Rifai who from the beginning wanted to empower and help the economy of the surrounding community through the tourism sector. This place has several areas such as outbound areas, libraries, casual stalls, children’s playgrounds, flying fox, and so on.
Watu Lumbung Educational Village was established in the middle of the teak tree plantation area. The concept of nature is also inherent in building construction in this region. The use of bamboo is used to make a relaxing hut between teak trees. Some buildings in the form of tree houses are made up of three floors with a teak tree that is still alive as a support pillar. From here, visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery from the top of the hill.
The visitors can freely choose the stalls. There are several options in Watu Lambung Educational Village’s stalls such as Wedangan Shop, Sate Kiloan Centre, Lembayung, Milk Shop and other Culinary places.
One of the Watu Lambung Educational Village attractions is tree that build in one of the teak trees. This tree concept imitates with the existing tree substation in Kalibiru, Kulon Progo. Security and safety are not missing from the owner of this area. From the top of the tree, the visitors can enjoy The Opak River and the iconic Opak Bridge.
