Spend an hour to getting around this lake by the duck boat. The weather is perfect, windy and cold. Unfortunately, the place is not well developed by govt. It is a lil bit dirty.

Love the scenery but nothing much interesting about this place. The boat ride is kind of expensive. The a small island in the middle of the lake called batu cinta.

The best bit of this lake is the journey to get there through the manicured tea plantations. Entrance for foreigners is rather excessive, and when you get to the lake, it is pleasant enough, but not stunning, and you have to run the gauntlet of strawberry sellers to get there. Many locals there with picnics, but it wasn't quite like... More

As someone else wrote, the pictures on the review make the lake look better than it does in real life. However, the tea plantations and scenery in the area along the roads are spectacular - especially if you are there on a day that's slightly overcast to bring out the colors. In addition, I was taken here on motorbike after... More

I gotta admit, the photos of this place looks much nicer than in real life. The lake isnt' particularly nice or anything but the best part of going to the Patengan Lake isn't about the lake but more of the tea plantation around it.

Must admit, that when we went there, I thought it was a different lake. So I was shocked about the size of the lake, quite small. The area is quite nice, but the lake shores are very dirty from the tourist leaving their rubbish there. Too bad!

I enjoyed since I get to hire a boat to bring us around the lake. My sister find it boring as sister prefer our ferry and cruises in Switizerland. But I still thought the place still not bad just to have a stroll and cruise on the lake. If you are fit. You can consider to row the boat or... More

Its a beautiful lake where boats which can accommodate 10 people are rented out for Rp300,000 to Rp400,000. The boat driver will narrate the legends & myths of the Lake including 'Batu Cinta' (Translated as the Rock Of Love).
