The view is so great! Surrounded by garden tea, the air just so cool. You can looks around by boat, but you have to pay to the boatmen. In the center of the lake, there are Land with several monkeys. What i really like from this trip is the view and the garden tea.

The lake or Situ in bahasa was only average. But the scenery before you reach Situ Patengan is beautiful.

There's not much to see in this place. Maybe you can go around the lake with boat, and see batu cinta or "rock love".

This time i tried a boat to visit batu cinta in the middle island of the lake. I need to pay IDR25,000 to go to island. This lake is quite... More

Patengan Lake (Situ Patenggang) is 48 km from Bandung city. It's not far from Kawah Putih and Rancabali tea plantation. It was beautiful. But too early and so loudly the operator played the music that destroyed the morning atmosphere. To go there by public transportation, take bus from Leuwipanjang bus station in Bandung to Ciwidey bus station. Then take minibus... More

We can see how beautiful this lake from above, right before we reach the site. The tea plantation with lake background was stunning. The lake itself is just average. The only attraction is just a boat trip to a small island in the middle that called Pulau Asmara (Romance Island). There's a big rock at the island that called Batu... More

Except for the romantic boat ride at the river and calming n nice view, nothing much here though. Bought some fruits like strawberry & blueberry from the street seller and it was cheaper than yiu ever found in Bandung and their fruits are sweet too!

I must say that i would kind of disagree with some of the negative reviews on this lake. I found it lovely and refreshing and i definitely feel there was a wow factor on sighting this lake. As a foreigner,the novelty of the lake was it is placid and set among lovely trees. There is a smallish isthmus of trees... More
