Have you ever heard about Mount Gede Pangrango National Park -- Taman Nasional Gede Pangrango (TNGP)?

The Mount Gede Pangrango National Park is located in West Java, Indonesia. The park is centred on two volcanoes, Mount Gede (2.958 m.a.s.l) and Mount Pangrango (3019 m.a.s.l). Another fact i can say is that Gede Pangrango National Park was close enough from big cities like Jakarta or Bandung.

People from Jakarta or Bandung especially mountaineers usually spend their weekend hiking one of these mountains. Normally, it takes two days one night only to hike one peak of the mountain. You can choose either Friday night - Satuday night hike or Saturday morning - Sunday morning hike.




How to get there:

Im staying in Jakarta, so I give you the route of Jakarta - TNGP (Cibodas Gate) and vice versa directions only.

By Motorcycle or car:
You need approximately 3 hours to get to TNGP from Jakarta by motorcycle or your own car. The route is very clear. First, you take the route to Bogor then heading to Puncak. Follow the main road until you arrived in Cibodas. The sign of Taman Nasional Gunung Gede Pangrango is easy to find. Just follow the direction and you will get there.

By public transportation:
Usually it takes about 4 - 5 hours to get TNGP  when using this public mode. The very first thing to do is to go to Kampung Rambutan Bus Terminal and take the bus route Jakarta - Tasik or Jakarta - Cianjur bus. Tell to bus conductor that you will hike Gede or Pangrango Mountain or that you need to go to Cibodas. He then will drop you off in the right shelter close to Cibodas. Ah, and the bus ticket is around Rp20.000-27.000 per person depending on the class. You can choose the economic class or business class.

When it comes to public transportation i recommend going together in a group. Because, after the bus drops you off, you still need to take a little van to transport you to the Cibodas gate. It usually costs Rp4000 per person, in the day time. But, if you arrived by night, you must rent the van. It costs around Rp100.000 per van for 10 people. You can easily share the cost when going in a group. Beside, you need to be in group when hiking a mountain, right?

Just don't hike alone. Just don't.



How to register:

You have to know that TNGP has some very strict rules. TNGP only allows minimum 3 person in a group to hike with SIMAKSI (license letter to hike) that you have to get it minimum a week before.

First, you have to book your hiking schedule online in: http://booking.gedepangrango.org/.  Then, follow the instructions.
