About the tour

Sand dunes are natural formations in the form of sand dunes resembling hills due to wind movement (eolean). Sand dunes are generally formed in desert areas, but in Indonesia, which is a tropical climate with high rainfall, there are sand dunes that make it unique. This sand dune is known as the Parangtritis Sand Dunes. The Sand Dunes in Parangtritis are formed from a collection of mountain volcanic ash material carried by the Opak River, Progo River, Winongo River, and Oyo River so that it reaches Parangtritis Beach. Small and light volcanic ash will be carried to the shore. When dry, this material will be carried by the wind and settle. This process occurs continuously for a long time to form a sand dune. Sand dunes can be used as objects of research or developed for tourism purposes. One of the tourism developed in Gumuk Pasir Parangtritis is sandboarding. Sandboarding is a unique sport that is classified as safe, because the players will not feel pain if they fall on the soft sand while sliding. Many sandboarding fans claim to be addicted to frequent skating after trying this game. Game sensations that increase the player's adrenaline are believed to relieve stress. Sandboarding is a game that is quite potential and interesting in Indonesia, because not every country has a sand dune location that supports this game activity.
