West Java in Depth will bring you to discover the beauty of west Java’s prime nature wonders as well as the essential tradition of the region. You’ll visit three big towns where you’ll not only enjoy nature but also experience local culture and folk music.
You’ll be invited to discover the heart of Tasikmalaya city – Naga village. Traditional wooden houses and green terraced rice fields will welcome you on your arrival in this laid-back village. Home to conservative Muslim Sundanese, this village teach you traditional simplicity and environmental wisdom.
Indonesia has many folk tales, one of which surrounds the famous Tangkuban Perahu mountain that we will visit the next. A story told generation to generation, it was claimed that Mount Tangkuban Perahu was once an overturned boat that eventually became a mount that it is today. But that’s a story for you to find when you visit Bandung.
Galunggung volcano also awaits for you in Bandung. This mount will definitely fascinate you with its amazingly beautiful greenish crater lake. To get to the crater, you’ll need to climb up hundreds of steps to reach the peak of the active tar volcano.
History of West Java is another point you’ll get from West Java in Depth trip. We’ll be taking you to secluded Cangkuang temple in Garut. Cangkuang may not as famous as Borobudur temple and Prambanan temple in Central Java, but it indeed is an important artifact in Tatar Sunda (another name for West Java) as it’s the only Hindu temple discovered in the area.
You’ll end your West Java in Depth by enjoying Angklung performance in Bandung’s Saung Angklung. Indulge yourselves in exceptional tones produced by the unique bamboo musical instrument. And don’t miss a chance to try to play it yourselves.
