How not, this bridge presents extraordinary landscape views. It didn't take long to make it one of the most popular tourist lists in Indonesia.

Situ gunung Lake is the main attraction at Situ Gunung which is the most visited tourist. To reach this lake you have to walk about 1km or 20 minutes from the entrance. Just follow the instructions or you can ask the staff where the lake is located. Just turn right from the entrance to the left, yes.

The trip to the lake will be easy because the path has been paved. Even so you are not allowed to use a vehicle but are obliged to walk. Keep the vehicle in the parking lot. Arriving at Lake Situ gunung you will see the vastness of the lake surrounded by pine trees which are on the slopes of the big mountain of Pangrango. The best time to go to the lake is during sunrise and sunset, because the weather is very good for taking photos.

Besides enjoying nature from the edge of the lake you can also enjoy the lake using getek / raft boats. Only 20,000 IDR. The important thing is that you will be driven around the lake until satisfied. 

For those of you who like fishing, this lake is very important to be included in the bucket list. Every day, there will always be fishing people on the edge of the lake. Their catches were unmitigated, big fish! Usually those who are fishing seem to forget the time, both morning, afternoon, evening or night they never stop fishing. It's also because the catch results can be used for eating when camping.

Here it is, Sukabumi tourism is on the rise. The length of the bridge reaches 250m with a height of 150m and a width of 2m. For those who are afraid of heights, it is advisable not to try because when you cross over this suspension bridge, you will feel rocking. But for those of you who like the courage test, it seems like this bridge will be exciting.

This bridge is deliberately made for tourism purposes. So, when you want to go to Curug Sawer, you don't need to walk around again, the distance is quite far and up and down. Now, with this suspension bridge, visitors will be facilitated on the go while saving time.

Satisfied playing in Curug Sawer you can continue the journey to Curug Kalinumpang. Unfortunately the distance is quite far, which is around 4KM, equivalent to 40-60 minutes on foot. However, if you are not strong on foot or want to quickly get to Kalinumpang Curug, you can take a motorcycle taxi. Curug Cinumpang is a family tourist place that is very suitable for children. There is a large playground and swimming pool here. But the swimming pool is for adults, it's only about 2 meters deep.

No need to turn around to Situ Gunung to go home. Because this Kalinumpang tour has an exit. So the travel route is like this, the entry is through the Situ Gunung tourist gate and returns via the Kalinumpang Tourism gate.
