Don’t worry for those of you who want to come here, please use Jogja’s car rental service to visit Watu Lumbung. Educational Village Watu Lumbung was established in the middle of a teak plantation location. The concept of nature is also attached to the construction of buildings in this area. The use of bamboo is used to create a relaxing hut between teak trees. Some buildings in the form of tree-dwelling locations were created up to three floors with teak trees still alive as support pillars.
From here, visitors can enjoy the beautiful view from the top of the hill. Visitors are free to choose stalls while feeling from existing stalls. Some of the stalls located in Watu Lumbung Education Village are between Kedai Wedangan, Sate Kiloan Center, Lembayung, Milk Shop, and Culinary Base. One of the charms of Kampung Edukasi Watu Lumbung is a tree substation built between teak trees.
The concept of the tree substation imitates the tree substation found in Kalibiru Kulon Progo. Security and safety are not spared from the management monitoring. From above the tree substation, visitors can enjoy the view of the iconic Opak River and Opak River.
