WEST JAVA COUNTRYSIDE

WJ – 03

Just like the name, this tour will bring you to experience the remote part of West Java. You’ll be taken to discover its unique old culture, experience priceless traditional wisdom and explore the prime nature wonders deep in the jungle and up on the mountain.

 

There are two areas you’ll visit – Tasikmalaya and Pangandaran. Each has its own distinctive vibe. In Tasikmalaya, we’ll take you to a remote hamlet where simplicity is at its best. It’s called Kampung Naga (Naga village) and the people are just so traditional. The houses are made of wood that match the nature’s green color of forest and paddy field enveloping the whole complex. I even ever dream that I woke up in the morning finding I lived in one of the houses.

 

Nature adventure is waiting in Pangandaran. You’ll try a fun sport named body rafting along a pristine river of Green Canyon. It’s called so for nothing. The water is so green and it flows between two towering cliff. The activity here will surely memorable as you’ll drift in the middle of jungle and through mini waterfalls and even jumping points. This will absolutely be a true adventure.

 

There are still a lot to see in West Java. We’ll go to some beaches for surfing and to enjoy sunset. An active volcano, Mt Galunggung, is also on the list. It has a huge caldera in which you’ll find an enchanting greenish lake nestling in it.
