One Day in Geopark Ciletuh Panenjoan Jampang Pelabuhan Ratu Sukabumi

Really looking for a beautiful do not have to go far.

Only by traveling a few hours from the location where I lived in Bogor (if not stalled ya hehe), lies a masterpiece of the creator with a view of nature painting a giant bathtub.

Starting from the mountains, fields, rivers, waterfalls (waterfall), the rocks and the sea here. All presented complete in an area called Ciletuh Geopark. This place is not as popular Edge tiles or Pelabuhan Ratu, and the way to here is arguably still ugly.

So normal that many who do not know the beauty of this place. Like what it Ciletuh Geopark? According to research geologist, this ciletuh including one of the regions with the oldest rocks on the island of Java. And he said this place was once was the sea.

I see from the photos on some blogs, the landscape is indeed unique Ciletuh bay that resembles a giant amphitheater with a horseshoe shape facing the Indian Ocean.

Well you know … the more curious deh. If you’ve never been here certainly not going to imagine. I myself have heard it about 2 year ago. But only two weeks ago (1/30/14) accomplished to this point.

Because of this one-day (one-night) trip, the trip should be started as early as possible to make up time to several locations. Fortunately, a group of participants trip this time was on stand-by at Terminal Sukabumi since midnight.

Around 2 am, I and his entourage were picked up by a car driver off road land rover aka landy (4×4) belonging to the manager of the tourist attractions. Finally melajulah the landy we were riding through the night. Route we passed via Cibadak, towards Pelabuhan Ratu, then turned toward Simpenan, up to Taman Desa Jaya, District Ciemas.

Though I sit in front of, but because of the atmosphere around the dark so not too recognize the street and area names are skipped. But about these in the beginning of the journey to the border of the tea plantation PTPN same time to Edge tiles.

These winding road with road conditions initially smooth, but over time many were damaged, which initially sleepy until I became awake. Finally I talked to accompany the driver who drove the car right next to me. According to the driver, travel in Ciletuh Geopark is managed by PAPSI (Society of Natural Pakidulan Sukabumi) under the guidance Biofarma and Sukabumi regency government.

Apparently this area is being developed to become a tourist attraction in Sukabumi. The car drove past tea plantations, rubber, dragon fruit and pineapple. Suppose the light of day, this may be incredibly indulgent eye. Approximately 5 hours late, we stopped briefly at the mosque for morning prayers. Day wore bright, the journey resumed. Soon we arrived at the gate reads “Geopark Ciletuh”.

That morning we had a quick stop at Basecamp Ciletuh in Taman Desa Jaya to rest. The place that made this basecamp in the form of houses. It turns out there’s so much on display posters containing writings and photographs about Ciletuh, and everything is nice-nice. Wow so not wait pingin immediately to the scene.

Ideally, visit this geopark takes 3-4 days. But if only had a limited time, we’ve been able to visit some of the locations that can be reached within one day, as Panenjoan, Curug Awang, Curug Sodong, Palangpang Beach, Curug Cimarinjung and Peak Darma. Not wanting to linger longer, we immediately went to the first location that is Panenjoan. The place is closest to the gate Geopark.

Panenjoan itself according to the driver means a place to see. Because of its location on a hill, on a side street alone we can already see the scene below. Extraordinarily beautiful. There is a green valley (which he says the days are former marine) with rice plots are neatly combined with houses like toys. In the distance there is the Indian Ocean. All restricted cliffs are still a lot overgrown with green trees

slightly curved shape facing the sea. If you look really, on the walls of the cliffs in the distance, there is a white line, it seems that the waterfall. That time was overcast, a light mist touching the hilltops in the distance. But still beautiful.

All we can see in one sweep of the eye. Mashallah beautiful that I could only chuckle kaguk. It feels comfortable to linger in this place. 14239837451723020965 14239837451723020965 In Panenjoan (Doc.

After passing through the rocky and poor roads typical of rural rice field view, we could get to this waterfall. From the gates of waterfall The road is actually close for Curug Awang can already be seen from a distance. This waterfall is not derived from springs in the top of the hill, but the flow of the river that forms the fracture splitting Ciletuh hill. What is unique about this waterfall is a wall that is shaped like a wall sculpture in brown. Brownish color of the water as well as soil type.

So it is less suitable for water play there. On the sides there are terraces with a lot of big stones on it. To get close to the waterfall, there are no shortcuts in addition to passing the sidelines of terracing. But it should be extra careful because the slope is nearly 45 degrees, and very slippery. Curug Awang is located at the top between two other waterfall that flows equally from the River Ciletuh, namely Central and Curug Curug Peak Manik. But we are not there because it is quite far away. 14239840321933748616 14239840321933748616 Curug Awang remotely (Doc. Yani) 14239840931980554604 14239840931980554604 Curug Awang close (Doc.

Not feel the time is shown at 10 over.

We hasten went on a trip to the waterfall Sodong. Streets where declining and increasingly ugly. Maybe half an hour we were bobbing on the car. I had been asleep for a moment because of sleepiness, but not so well because the car is often shaken. Apparently we were passing through the road that we see from above Panenjoan. Along the streets where always decorated the green fields. Apparently here once fertile soil and used as a granary. He said that in a year could be up to 3 times the harvest.

Curug seen from above tadipun looks closer now. Soon we reached the waterfall Sodong. This waterfall consists of two torrential streams and pond below are quite wide. On top of the waterfall Sodong seen no others, namely Curug Curug flow Cikanteh. But since running away, we’re there. Really treat eye soothing natural scenery.

The weather was a bit cloudy, and rain suddenly dropped again. We are forced to take shelter. Not lingering, we headed to one of the houses to enjoy lunch who had been already ready to be served. 14239843611997883888 14239843611997883888 Curug Sodong (below) and Curug Cikanteh (above) from a distance (Doc. Yani) After a while, we moved on to the final location of Palangpang Beach, Curug Cimarinjung and Peak Darma.

The three locations that are within a single lane. Because of time constraints, Turkish Palangpang simply bypassed. we give priority to the waterfall Cimarinjung and Peak Darma. Curug Cimarinjung also been seen from a distance after passing the beach. Similarly Peak Darma. Anyway the real me, being here seemed to see a giant natural painting. Soon we arrived in front of a stall. To reach the waterfall, we had to pass through a small street not far from there and a bit slippery because of the rain.

On both sides decorated with views of rice fields and a small stream brown. Palangpang beach can also be seen from a distance. The sound of the waterfall noise Cimarinjung already starting to sound harsh. Apparently true, the place is not too far away. This waterfall is also brown, with the typical two large rock in front of him. On the opposite side there is a tree with branches that looks exotic. But unfortunately here is rather difficult to get photos maximum, because of the heavy splashes will always wet the lens of our camera.

Oh yeah careful play here, in addition to the heavy water flow, water is also polluted waste mercury because around here there are many gold mines. 1423984477301250741 1423984477301250741 Palangpang beach from a distance (Doc.

Since the rainy season, the roads become difficult to pass cars.

But if to highlight Darma Ciletuh not to lose really. Finally we decided to walk alone. She’s supposed to just one hour, but if one person watch the different villages. It turned out just a few minutes are exhausted. We asked one motorist, he said Puncak Darma still far away. Feeling streets where still drivable car, we phoned the driver to pick us continue the journey to the top. But it turns out the car could only deliver a few meters away, did not dare to proceed because the streets were completely flooded and scared off his car ambles. The road was really bad, need special skills to drive a vehicle here.

So, we are forced to be off again on foot, okay already helped the car a few meters away. Actually, the course is not difficult, but because it has just rained, the roads become muddy and slippery. Usually people to highlight Darma pass another road through the village is Girimukti because the road is better. While the return path to decline, a new road we traveled through this.

Well, if passed it usually these cars can park at the top, so it does not have far to walk. 14239850711905685681 14239850711905685681 Bridge Cimarinjung (Doc.

We also passed Cimarinjung River bridge brown orange overwritten afternoon sunlight. From the bridge we could see Nyelempet waterfall in the distance. This river that will flow to the waterfall Cimarinjung, too faint voice still sounds.

From there the trip to the summit is not so far away, the streets are also not so difficult just slippery and uphill. But all the tiredness will pay off when it got above. Truly extraordinary. And more fun again lonesome, only our party who were here. So this is called Peak Darma. It is shaped like a giant amphitheater, shaped like a horseshoe facing the Indian Ocean with some smaller surrounding islands.

From here, surrounding meadows and the fields we could look off to the bottom, to the Gulf Ciletuh. Seeing green valleys and hilltops once the sea. Far away on the western horizon, the afternoon sun as if embarrassed to show themselves, hiding behind thick clouds. A moment rintikpun rain began to fall and more and more swift. We are forced to walk down while the rain ria, and imagine how slippery cobbled streets should we pass. Fortunately Cimarinjung bridge when he got in the rain subsided. The afternoon sun is shining again.
