Let's Explore The Kemasan Tourism Village In Boyolali

Bored with your routines? Want a vacation with village nuances? Swim in a royal bath? Let's go to Kemasan Tourism Village in Sawit District, Boyolali Regency.

Sawit is a sub-district in Boyolali district where we met in the middle of traveling between Solo City to Yogyakarta. From Solo, on the right side of the road, there is a statue of Mr. and Mrs. Farmers which symbolizes the Karang Duren village. Then, follow the direction. Approximately 3 km you will arrive at the Kemasan Tourism Village or Dewa Emas.

Quoted from the website desawisatakemasan.com, Dewa Emas was officially opened to the public in June 2016 and its management is under the Karya Lestari Manunggal Village-Regional Owned Enterprise. This village offers a variety of natural attractions and activities combined with education. There is a swimming pool and restaurant in Mungup hamlet, rice farming in Maron hamlet, methods for making various types of bread in Tangkisan hamlet, water spinach land and integrated waste management in Kemasan hamlet, painting and dance villages in Karanggayam hamlet, and traditional herbal making in Tegalsono hamlet.

Kemasan Tourism Village also has many natural springs located in Ngumbul hamlet. Since the Dutch Colonial era, this hamlet has become the headquarter of the Sawit District Government. This is where the formation of the Kemasan Tourism Village began.

One of the Umbul which has long been an attraction is Umbul Tirto Mulyo (re: umbul means springs). After the renovation, the Umbul Tirto Mulyo building resembled Tamansari Yogya so that it gave the sensation of bathing in the style of royal bathing. More, The pond at Umbul Tirto Mulyo was built during the reign of Sri Susuhunan Paku Buwono X (PB X) when he ruled the Surakarta Hadiningrat Sunanate. This spring is often used by PB X and his relatives for bathing before the fasting month. Umbul Tirto Mulyo is open every day from 06.00 – 17.30 with very affordable entrance ticket prices.
