The real name of this waterfall is Curug Luhur but many people call this waterfall as Curug Cikaso for the water running through this waterfall comes from Cikaso River. In curug Cikaso, there are three waterfall spots side by side, where on the bottom there’s a pool bluish green water.

These three waterfall spots located in this destination location have the same height for about 80 meters and 100 meters wide. These three waterfalls are located in the same location with different names : Curug Asepan (on the left), Curug Meong (on the middle) and Curug Aki (on the right). From all these three waterfalls, Curug Aki is located quite hidden, behind a cliff facing east. If you want to come to the location, you are suggested to come in the morning.
