Pancuran Pitu Baturaden

Baturaden is a natural attraction at Banyumas, Central Java on the north of Purwokerto. It is about 20 km from Purwokerto that may take 15 minutes. 2 kilometers from baturaden there is a hot spring waterfall called Pancuran Pitu. Pancuran means douche or small waterfall, while pitu means seven.

This tourism destination is on the slope of Mount Slamet. For people from the tropical country, its temperature is cold enough, about 18° Celsius – 25° Celsius. Going there on the rainy season is a bad decision, the best is on the dry season so that we can explore the jungle or climb Mount Slamet.

Since the water is sulphuric, many people use it to cure skin problems. The people usually take a bath at the waterfall or just immersing their feet in the pool. The yellow color is caused by the sulfur that remains on the stone. The water’s temperature is about 60° Celcius, hot but its really fun to immerse our feet. It seems that the water relax the nerves. When we are tired, we can pay a massager to massage our body for about IDR15,000.
