volcano, geoheritage, tourism, energy, education


Ngebel area is part of the Wilis volcano complex. This volcano is a Quaternary Stratovolcano which has several educational locations in the form of volcanic activities, historical traces of the Dutch colonial era to the Japanese era, and local legends. Educational tourism locations include Ngebel Lake, Mloko Sewu, Widodaren Waterfall, Andesite Lava Autobreccia, Agglomerates, Pyroclastic Flow, Pyroclastic Fall, Hot Springs, Mud Pool, Hydroelectric Power Plant, and Dutch Channel. The methodology used in this study is a vertical rock profile, outcrop observation, petrographic analysis, and information compilation. This study aims to provide insight into geotourism education and education about the history of the Indonesian nation. Understanding events around nature and understanding the history of the nation are expected to foster the motivation for patriotism and state defense for the Indonesian nation. By better understanding the geography and culture of the Ngebel people, we hope that in the future there will be much better ideas to improve Ngebel tourism and the welfare of the surrounding community.
