The uphill road like life’s path has led us to a comfortable and beautiful place. The sun is so polite to lower the valor of the light. The breeze was blowing to fulfill the afternoon.
This place is Green Village Gedangsari. One of the many tourist destinations in Gunungkidul. This is where we can see the tapestry of the Klaten area stretching widely on the north bank. The expanse of hills on the south side, lined up as if it were a fence.
You can see Mount Gambar, Mount Sumilir, and the peak of Sriten whose land is higher than the places we visited at that time.
Green Village is a famous place because of the beauty of the place to wait for the sun to sink into the bed. Who would have thought that this place, which was originally just a fruit garden, could become a place visited by many tourists from within and outside the city.
Now, thanks to the local village’s Tourism Awareness Group (Pokdarwis), Green Village tourism can drive the economy and become a source of livelihood for residents.
The best time to come to Green Village is in the afternoon when the mind and body need to take a break from activities, and the sun doesn’t hurt anymore.
Here there are several gazebos that can be used to chat with other humans and exchange ideas. Sit down with them, tell them what is necessary to tell. Like the wind that always whispers to the leaves. If not, just sitting back alone enjoying the twilight is also not a problem.
Several photo spots were deliberately put in that place so that millennial generation people could satisfy their ambition to show classy social media photo feeds.
Between the gazebo buildings, you can see a green wooden stage to which a rope line has been connected on either side to play flying fox. Suppose the length of the track is 625 meters.
It seems like going down the hill in a state like flying is very pleasant.
As it got late, the atmosphere in Green Village was getting more intimate. The reddish tinge in the sky slowly thinned. The north side, which this afternoon saw the landscape of the Klaten area, transformed into a sea of flickering lights like fireflies emerging from its protection.
The sky was dim and the night fell and the moon began to appear on the horizon in a reddish light. A gust of wind that brought cold air seemed to remind us to immediately turn to bed. At Green Village Gedangsari, all tired minds and bodies are replaced by peace of mind.
