Early this month, Anggi (we work at the same office/school) asked me whether I want to join her and her friends’ trip to Green Canyon….yup, you read it correctly GREEN CANYON not Grand Canyon I was planning to share this for my Indonesia Banget post…but 17 of this month is too far to share my current activity. let’s just say that this is a Special Indonesia Banget edition
First of all, let me explain you what Green Canyon is!
From local people, this place is called as Cukang Taneuh (it used Sundanese – a traditional language used by people of West Java) which means The Land Bridge or The Soil Bridge (I am not sure which one is the correct one as tanah has two meanings in English). In 1990, a tourist from France saw the beauty of Cukang Taneuh and called it as Green Canyon because it looks like Grand Canyon but the color is so green.
Green Canyon is in Desa Kertayasa, Kecamatan Cijulang, Ciamis, Jawa Barat (West Java). It is 393 km from Jakarta, the ride takes about 8 to 9 hours. It is also located around 31 km from Pangandaran Beach and also close to Batu Karas Beach and Batu Hiu Beach. Because all those beaches are near our main destination we decided to visit them all. I will divide the photos based on the places.
These are my photos…to anyone who come across these photos, please don’t use them without my permission. Tolong jangan gunakan photo-photo berikut tanpa izin dari saya atau setidaknya berikan link ke halaman ini.
We arrived at Pangandaran Beach around 4 pm. Some of my fellow travelers wanted to ride banana boat on the East Beach…Anggi, Winda and I wanted to capture the sunset. Unfortunately, the sun hid behind the cloud…but I amstill happy with the view. The current was so strong in this west beach.
Here are my favorite photos (Click on the photo to have a better look). If your cursor hovers above the photo, I wrote something on each photo (tho not always)
