Cipeureu Waterfall in Ciater Sub-District, Subang Regency - Indonesia

It is the fact that the village offers several stunning waterfalls including Cipeureu Falls. To be exact, it resides in Dawuan Hutment and has another name which is Kembar Waterfall. In terms of name, “Pereu” means corrosive. The rumor has it. Any metal materials would rust if they are thrown there. Despite the story, tourists come to the location to conduct fun activities like selfies and taking a bath under the falls.
In terms of size, Cipeureu Waterfall has a moderate height but it comes with the swift flow of water. So, why is Cipeureu called “Kembar” Waterfall, though? “Kembar” means twin, actually. According to the locals, there was another waterfall back then. However, those falls became one due to the decreasing amount of water source.
