holidays are fun days. We can rest easy, forget about our work for a moment, or we can go on vacation to tourist attractions. On this day off I choose to visit a new tourist spot not far from my grandmother's house. me and my family went to Bendo Reservoir.
Bendo Reservoir is a reservoir that used to be the Keyang River, located in Ngindeng village, Ponorogo, East Java. This reservoir has been inaugurated by the president of Indonesia, Jokowi, in 2021. It has not been inaugurated for a long time because the construction requires a process and is still considered a new tourism. Although it has been inaugurated, this tour is not allowed to be visited more closely, because it is still in the development process. So visitors can only see from a distance but can still see the beauty of the Bendo reservoir and its surroundings. Oh... the construction of this reservoir was built in 2013. The process is indeed quite long but through the process this reservoir has become a good tourist spot. Visitors can only see from afar, but the visitors who come are already quite crowded. In fact, not only from within the region but from outside the region and even outside the province.
there are sellers here, ranging from food, snacks, drinks, toys to typical Ponorogo souvenirs.
car park to the brim from end to end. Because there were quite a number of visitors, our car had to be parked quite a distance away.
Spots for taking pictures
Here is provided a spot to take pictures. Especially for those who like selfies and exist on social media. There are various forms of background that we can use to take pictures. All of these are made of bamboo. In this area there are still many bamboo trees, usually around the river. I myself also took pictures because I wanted to capture the moment at the Bendo reservoir. To take pictures here is free because it is intentionally provided so that visitors can capture the moment in the Bendo reservoir and can be used as a memento.
because we came here in the afternoon and the weather was quite hot, so we bought this delicious looking ice cream. It's true, on a hot day it's perfect to eat ice cream, it makes your mouth feel cold and fresh. However, because the sun is very hot, you have to be a little hasty eating ice cream for fear of melting.
Thank God for the beauty of the universe is so diverse. Trees, Mountains, make nature so beautiful and natural. If I had to choose to live in the city or live in the village? I prefer to live in the village, because there is less dirty air pollution and there are still many mountains and trees :)
