Curug Luhur Gunung Malang Bogor

Bored, I suddenly got a plan browsing around Bogor. Visit some Curug (waterfall) which I heard many of them are beautiful and few people know about it unless the local communities. A friend just gave me a GPS coordinate, so why waiting. Curug Luhur, my first target. Located in desa Gunung Malang, Kecamatan Tenjolaya, Kabupaten Bogor (Bogor Regency).

HTGT (How To Get There)
I started to activate my GPS when i hit Bogor. Bogor is municipality about 60km from Jakarta. From Juanda street beside Istana Bogor (Bogor Presidential Palace), I moved forward to Kabupaten Bogor following GPS guidance.

Capturing pic using pocket cam along the way.

I saw Angkot (public transportation using mini van, often found in developing countries), serving route Ciomas to Ciapus.

I almost turned back, seeing gravel road. Sometimes the GPS route is not always a good choice.

Beyond my expectation. Water stream from mountain modified into water boom and pool.

Starving and thirsty, so on the way back, we stop and rest at Saung Abah, a traditional restourant serving fish and chicken. No preservative. directly taken from a fish pond.
