Welcome to Pamekasan regency! The third regency beyond Madura island from the west through the east. Actually, there are many tourism places around Pamekasan, such as: Talang Beach, Api Tak Kunjung Padam that located in Dhangka, and Arek Lancor Monument but in this part, I will tell you about Samiran Water Fall.
Samiran Water Fall located in a village named Samiran, exactly in Kebun Hamlet, Proppo District of Pamekasan regency. It takes 7 km from the downtown.
If you started your journey from Bangkalan, you can begin from Suramadu Bridge or Kamal Harbour. If you ride motorcycle you pay free to pass Suramadu, 5.000, rupiah for across the sea by ship. You can ride public transportation from there such as AKAS. From Kamal Harbour you can ride mini-bus by paying 15.000,00 rupiahs. The trip takes 3 hours to Pamekasan.
From the downtown you can ride angkot or kind of taxi there with paying 5000,00 rupiahs but it still far from the location. You can ride ojek with 15.000,00 rupiahs with guarantee; the driver will accompany you until Samiran Water Fall, but if you travel with many people, it will better you rent a car. It will make easier your trip.
I suggest you to go down from your vehicle and enjoy the panorama through the trip, because there are many rivers and farming out there. You can also exceed the bridge that connected the rivers before arrived the location. Don’t forget to take a lot of pictures.
For your information that around the location there is not ATM machine, hotel, or restaurant yet. So you should bring your own food and your tent.
When you arrived the location, your long trip will be payed. Madura known with hot air, but when you get there you will not feel that atmosphere because at that place there many trees such as Tectonia grandis, Casuarina eqnisetifolia, bamboo etc. You will relax there.
Take the great place in the north of waterfall. There are many Casuarinas and a lake beside the waterfall you can enjoy and song from bamboos that add how beautiful nature God had been creatured.
Build your tent and make your camp! That’s good place to make scout or outbond outside there. You can also spread out your carpet or mat and make it like hanami in Japan. Don’t forget open all of the snacks and drinks you bring. Enjoy them like a picnic.
For the souvenir, you can come into the society. There are many houses around the location. Pamekasan known as the best production of traditional food named Krepek Tette especially Proppo District. You will get Krepek Tette fresh from the oven then.
While getting the souvenir you can enjoy traditional house of Madura that named as taneyan lanjhang. As aphorism said, killing two birds with one stone. Yes!
You will get all of things there freely: the waterfall, lake, and houses. Please come and enjoy the entire panorama without fee, because Samiran Water Fall is a virgin tourism place.
Let’s go! Make the holiday more than holiday by visiting this place. Yosh!
