Better than I expected. I enjoyed our trip so much. Beautiful nature, good location and a great way to see hundreds of monkeys. Our guide said it’s better if we go early in the morning when they feed the monkeys. They will come of out...More

The caves are nice, but other than that it is just a forest with trees. We did see a few monkeys and had a nice hike, but not so special that you would have to pay for it. The beach with the stranded ship was...More

This pleasant national park located right on the edge of the town has native Javanese deer and monkeys galore. Foreign tourists are expected to pay more than Indonesians, which is consistent with most tourist destinations in Indonesia. There are a number of caves and sites...More

We booked a two hour walking tour through the National Park with our very nice guide Harimat (phone/whatsapp: +6281395275156). He showed us the natural caves in the park (we even got to see the porcupines) and helped us get close to the apes. Then he...More

Pangandaran has a surprising number of animals. If you're in luck and you have a good guide, you can see quite a few if you start walking at twilight. Our walk started at 5. We saw the deer on the street (where they like to...More

We did a tour to the green canyon. It was organised by Intrepid tour group so I didn't organise it myself locally. The green canyon is well worth a trip, it was fantastic! It's a short boat ride (under 30 mins) and you arrive at...More

We had a guide who knew about animals so we saw porcupines, bats, deer, grass hoppers, lizards and tukans but we did not walk enough inside the buffalo or the scorpion. We have seen better national parks in Indonesia but good for a first time...More
