300 meters to northeast, we can visit Plawangan Hill recreation park. At this area can be found Tlogo Putri swimming pool where the water came from spring on the Slope Hill Plawangan. When we enter Tlogo Putri area, usually we will be welcomed by wild monkeys. Tired walking, we can enjoy the view surrounding Kaliurang by mini train. People call the train ”kelinci”, means rabbit. Although all of the attraction lies at the slope of Merapi, one the active volcano, this place is save enough, because this area is equipped with the alarm. It will be sound a few hours before the eruption happened. If the Mount Merapi is on a danger status, the Kaliurang will be closed for public.
