Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park, West Java, Indonesia. The park covers a huge area and features rich nature, including two volcanoes – Mount Gede and Mount Pangrango – found in the heart of the park. It is also home for various endangered animal species. Hiking, birdwatching and animal watching trips are therefore favorite among the tourists.
Climbers usually choose Mount Gede: spectacular views to the park and the crater open from the summit. There are various trails that lead to the both volcanoes. Another impressive attraction is hot streams around Cibeureum waterfall. Locals fish at the Situ Gunung Lake, which looks so enigmatic. It is possible to go camping in the park and spend a night in a tent, while continuing your trip the next day.
