Vacation to the Mountains and Cangkuang Waterfall

January 2020 · 3 min read · West Java

As the largest Tropical Rainforest Area in Java, the Mount Halimun Salak National Park has a lot of extraordinary natural wealth.

And this time I and my three nephews, spent the weekend to one of the waterfalls that still exist in the area, namely Cangkuang Waterfall or Cidahu Waterfall located in the Cidahu Sukabumi.

In this area there are also hiking trails to the summit of Mount Salak and Kawah Ratu as well as the Javana Solace Spa location and camping area.

Returning to its original destination, the distance of Curug Cangkuang from the gate or the motorcycle parking area is about 1 kilometer on foot. At the beginning of the lane, we followed the road to the bottom of the cliff, not to worry that the lane's condition was quite safe and quite good.

Arriving at the bottom of the cliff, there is also an area for camping, this place is quite spacious and very comfortable because it is overgrown with green grass and a very well-managed garden.

Seen several tents have been erected, they are relaxing enjoying the natural beauty that is around the camping area. In addition to camping, camping areas here are often used to hold activities carried out by the community, schools and so on.

If you have a plan to camp there, don't be afraid of a lack of water supply. The river which is right on the edge of the camping area is so abundant in water, you can bring water there to be cooked.

Some facilities available there are food stalls and public toilets, but there is no prayer room for worship. We also pray in a gazebo near a kiosk and take ablution in public toilets.

After we found a campsite and stall, we began to enter the pine forest with the condition of the sloping path and we also decided to take a break while enjoying the cool air typical of the mountains. From here, the distance to Cangkuang Waterfall is only 300 meters.

finally the four of us arrived at Curug Cangkuang. A beautiful waterfall is located behind a cliff in the area. Cold water in Cangkuang waterfall

Cangkuang waterfall has a height of about 15 to 20 meters, underneath there is a pool with a depth of adults. So, it's still safe for me who just want to soak but can't swim.

The pool is clear and clean until the colorful stones look very clear plus the walls around the waterfall are overgrown with green moss, and we begin to capture the moment by taking pictures.
