Tinalah River

The scenic rocky river along Menoreh foothills of Samigaluh to Kalibawang in Kulon Progo Regency of Yogyakarta.

Tinalah is one of the rivers on the island of Java, Indonesia. Precisely in Kulon Progo Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta. The source of the river is on the Menoreh hills in Samigaluh region, flows out towards the east passing Menoreh foothills, villages and paddy fields in Samigaluh to Kalibawang region. The river flows ends at Progo River. Tinalah River is the home to several streams including Lor and Klegung.

Down the Tinalah River in the dry season I found such a clear water flowing among the river rocks, even I could see the swimming small fishes among the river rocks. The combination of the clear water, sound of flowing water, river rocks, surrounding paddy fields, blue sky and Menoreh Hills as a backdrop creates a beautiful view.

Tinalah also to be a name of a village located right on the river in Purwoharjo of Samigaluh. It is "Dewi Tinalah" which is the abbreviation of "Desa Wisata Tinalah", a village that set up for tourism purposes. Desa Wisata Tinalah provides some packages including: camping, outbond, river tubing and homestay.
