Pangka Antique Locomotive

PG Pangka offers a historical tour packages as a medium of education and recreation by using an antique Locomotive made in 1927 known as Agrowisata Loco Antik (antique locomotive tour). There are short and long distance packages. Long distance tour is planned traveling around about 10 km through sugar cane plantations up to Waduk Cacaban but still unavailable up to this publication. The short one travel around sugarcane near factory.



That day, after visiting PG Pangka, we try to enjoy the short trip with an antique tourism train called "loco antik " (antique locomotive)


Pangka is a quiet and beautiful village. There are many old-fashioned houses with a large yard.
