Grojogan Sewu Waterfall (1000 step waterfall) is one of the most impressive waterfalls in Java but it has been built for large numbers of tourists. We found a few short trails (beautiful ones) that took us away from the crowds. This was the first time I encountered a significant two tiered pricing scheme for foreigners (160,000 IDR/foreigner and 15,000 IDR/Indonesian weekend rates). This left a poor impression of the area despite it being an impressive waterfall.
