When we were in Batu – Malang after completing the outbound event, we have time to rest until dinner time. One of our friends, invited us to visit one of the waterfalls in Malang. Local people call the waterfall as Coban Rondo Waterfall. In the Java language Coban means waterfall, while Rondo Means Widow. There is a legend that underlies why the name of the waterfall as Coban Rondo.
Once upon a time, there was a couple who will visit her husband in-laws house. But on the way, there is a man who is interested in the women. The husband then hid his wife in a waterfall. Then the husband fighting with a man who loves his wife. But, both of men were killed in the fight. The wife who was waiting at the waterfall and then became a widow because her husband was killed. That’s why the waterfall known as Coban Rondo.
