Post a Comment
For Menong's friends who are visiting Bandung, apart from Lembang and its surroundings or the South Bandung area such as the hot spring area in Ciwidey, it's not wrong for Menong's friends to take the time to breathe fresh air in a protected forest area. Grand Forest Park, Tahura, Dago Pakar, Bandung.

Forest Park Ir. H. Juanda (Tahura) or THR Juanda or better known as Dago Pakar is located about 10 km from downtown Bandung.

Tahura has 2500 plant species, 40 families and 112 species covering an area of 590 hectares which stretches from the Dago area to Maribaya Lembang. So Menong's friends who intend to go to Lembang can take this route. Tahura itself is managed by the Regional Government Forestry Service of West Java Province with the concept of a protected forest as well as a natural and historical tourist destination.

Clean air and a clean environment make Forest Park Raya, Tahura, Dago Pakar, Bandung a cool place for cross-country sports and recreation. Friends of Menong can start their journey from the main gate at Kampung Pakar, Ciburial Village, Cimenyan District, Bandung City or just a few minutes from the Dago terminal –I myself entered through the Bengkok hydropower plant, not from the main gate–.

By paying a ticket for Rp. 8,000, Menong's friend can travel 6 km in 2-3 hours to the Omas waterfall tourist attraction in Maribaya - Lembang, West Bandung Regency. The distance is quite far when reached by vehicle via Jalan Setiabudhi.

This forest, which was built by the Dutch in 1912, has several tourist objects in it, such as the Japanese cave and the Dutch cave, the Ir. H. Juanda, home of flora, museum, waterfall (waterfall) and playground. Visitors generally intend to see Japanese caves and Dutch caves, evidence and silent witnesses of colonialism in this archipelago.

Japanese Cave, the first cave Menong friends can visit because it is not far from the main gate. This cave, which was built in 1942, has 4 entrances with 2 ventilations. It looks smaller and stuffier in contrast to the larger and wider Dutch cave. In his time, this cave was used as a storage area for ammunition, logistics and radio communications.

The second cave is the Dutch cave which is a passage to the Maribaya area. Built in 1906, this cave was originally used as a tunnel for the Bengkok hydropower plant and then changed its function to become a military headquarters and a telecommunication radio station. Dutch caves are built to resemble a network of tuffaceous sandstone hills.

Menong's friends can explore the contents of the cave that was once used as a military base as well as a detention cell. Even though it is a little damp, the Dutch cave is still well preserved and safe to pass through. Don't worry about the dark because there are flashlight rentals at each cave entrance.

The cool and beautiful atmosphere will make Menong's friends forget for a moment if Taman Hutan Raya, Tahura, Dago Pakar, Bandung is located not far from the city center. The Tahura area is equipped with benches and tables to rest while enjoying the provisions brought from home. Clean toilets are also available at several points.

Fatigue will be erased by the beautiful scenery along the track. Let's go for a walk to the Grand Forest Park, Tahura, Dago Pakar, Bandung
