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. The tea plantation was absolutely beautiful and it made the trip 100% worthwhile just to see... More

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).

I went to Situ Patengan at the time i visited Kawah Putih (since it was only 2km away). Good place for relaxing, with mountain breeze.

Cute little lake, although it was a bit dingy, dark and seemed like it was more for locals. There were a few wooden stalls for souvenirs along the entrance, but nothing I would buy based on quality. Berry sellers galore, but if you just politely say "no," they leave you alone (for a few minutes). Our group of 7 rented... More

I went here today this afternoon. It was my first time. I thought on my way there I would place some nice restaurant, but it turned out only instant noodle I could find…But overall, the people are friendly, although the women who sold blackberry and strawberries are a bit forceful to me and my husband to buy their fruits ~_~...

Not much of a sight really. Not worth the visit unless you are in Ciwidey area. Most highlight that the entrance fee is high for the sight/s it offered.
