    Cikaso waterfall is hidden at the rural of Surade sub-district. Once we reach the village where we can park our car, we'll continue by small boat to get to the waterfall, actually it's only around 5 minutes on the boat and we can hear the water drop from the distance. The waterfall is amazing.

    Surfing at Ujung Genteng

    by apple-melati Updated Sep 2, 2009

    Ujung Genteng beach is perfect for surfing. The waves are always high. Some people surf at around Pangumbahan beach not too far from the location where we can watch the sea-turtles laying eggs at midnight. Unlike Bali, there's no place to rent surfing boards of any kinds so if you wanna surf you must bring your own surfing boards. Best time for surfing is in the morning when the sun shining still not too hot and not too windy.

    Cigangsa waterfall is one of the most attractive waterfalls in Sukabumi. Some people said it's the little Niagara fall. The waterfall is surrounded by green rice fields. Takes a little effor to go down because the route was slippery and pretty far. Not to mention the way back up was very exhausting. But the view from below was stunningly beautiful.

    Watching Sea Turtles Laying Eggs on the Beach

    the baby turtle
    4 more images

    At Pangumbahan beach we can watch the sea turtles laying eggs at midnight. These sea turtles dig holes on the sand to hide their eggs. During the turtles laying eggs, we're not suppose to make noise and light. We should watch them in silent and minimum lights. The local said that noise can distract the turtles and scare them away. The size of these mama turtles are huge. When they're done they'll swim back to the open water. Their eggs will be collected by the turtles' conservation staff. The eggs then will be kept in a special storage room waiting util they hatch. Takes few months until the eggs hatch become little baby turtles. The baby turtles then will be released to the ocean. This is to save the turtles habitat from extinction.

    Night Caving at Buni Ayu

    inside the cave
    4 more images

    This was my first time going down into a cave. I was a little nerveous when we started the caving at 2am in the morning. The guide said it's the best time to go down there because if we do it during the day, it will be very hot inside the cave. We went 30 meters down to the cave on a rope. From there we walked on foot exploring the cave for about 5 hours until around 8am in the morning when we got out of the cave. Inside the cave we saw things that cannot matched to anything, just wonderful and unexplainable. The guide told us that we're at 50 meter below the earth, reminded me of a movie: "journey to the center of the earth" but the night caving was even more fun than the adventure at the movie.

    Cibereum Fall

    Cibereum falls
    2 more images

    Cibereum fall or curug cibereum is located in Pondok halimun, about 20 minutes from Sukabumi downtown. Can be reached by angkot. It is a good place for people who like hiking. Pondok Halimun is reserved rain forest, where there is stream and camping ground. It is situated on the hill, where we will pass tea plantation. Scenery is amazing. To reach the falls from the reserved rain forest takes about one hour, all the way up on foot. If you are not a hiker, suggested just to enjoy the surrounding rainforest, as the clear water stream that runs along the way from the fall.
