Recreation to Selorejo Dam. There are many recreation places can be used as alternative of destination for refreshing. They can be natural places or innovation places. Sendang Biru beach and Coban Rondo Waterfall are the examples of natural place for destination. While BNS and WBL are about innovation recreation places. Here I want to share another place for recreation destination. It is Selorejo Dam.
