Breksi Cliff is one of the most popular new destinations in Yogyakarta, in contrast to other tourist destinations in Yogyakarta, this Breksi Cliff was originally a white stone mining complex managed by local residents, in other words the Breksi Cliff is not naturally formed but formed as a result of mining activities carried out by local residents.

Since that time the activities of the people around the Breksi Cliff were sluggish, the people who initially worked as miners had to find other jobs. Over time some tourists visited the former mine because it was a nice sight with towering limestone cliffs which was a new thing that had never existed before in Yogyakarta, at that time management had not yet been formed to accommodate tourists who visited, until finally Breksi Cliff increasingly crowded with tourists and a committee was formed in the area.

Currently Tebing Breksi has transformed into the most popular new tourist destination in Yogyakarta and has been equipped with various supporting infrastructure such as the construction of a Tlatar Seneng, an amphitheater or an open stage that functions for the stage of art performances or can be used if there are special events with half-circle seating a stage that adds to the beauty of the scenery of the Breccia Cliff.
