    gede-pangrango national park's canopy trail walk is about 25 metres from the ground and about 250 metres long. made in the heart of the forest so visitors can enjoy kind of trees in the rainforest. and the canopy bridge have shelters in the middle, at the big trees, before continuing to the other side of the canopy. so, can be said walking through the trail walk, from tree to tree.

    there are several waterfalls scattered along gede-pangrango national park. one of them is cikaweni. taken from sundanese word "ci" means river and "kaweni" the mangoes. said that above the waterfall can be found mangoes trees, long time ago.

    owa jawa or javan gibbbon is protected animal that can be found in gede-pangrango national park. these giant grey apes like to do "acrobatic" from a tree to another and produce a very unique sound. best time to see them mingle with their groups is about 8 o'clock in the morning. meanwhile for hornbill is earlier, around 6 o'clock.

    the rangers and foresters in gede-pangrango national park provided meals 3 times per day: breakfast [fried rice with scrambled egg], lunch [steam rice, sour soup, salty fish, fried chicken, chili paste] and dinner [steam rice, meat and chicken in coconut milk, corn-scrambled egg, stir fried veggies]. it's delicious. and also provided snacks. but there's also available an open kitchen where the campers can cook their own food.

    Favorite Dish: their salty fish and sour soup are so yummy!!!!

    Luggage and bags: waterproof backpack is a must, especially the rain fall in the afternoon around 2 - 3 o'clock

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: trekking shoes or boots which comfy to your legs. added with light raincoat and bandana and safari hat plus torch since electricity will shutdown after midnight. additional socks is a must also.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: antihistamin pils, toilet paper and mineral water. another most important is mosquito repellent. this place have a very small mosquito so called "agas" [sandflies] which remain very itchy on skin after got bitten --and since my skin quite sensitive ... voila, i'd got same experience as happened when i take hols with my beloved one in belitung at december 2006!

    Photo Equipment: recharged your battery at home and bring lots of additional batteries since electricity only for the lamps.

    Miscellaneous: muesli bars is a must to keep your energy during trekking.
