“A real adventure in a jungle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

There are two caves to check out and unless you're in a very fit condition, you would want to hire a motorcycle cab a.k.a ojek to go to those places. They're about 5 km through small windy road. Marvelous scenery and the ojek driver was really informative and helpful. There's even a small outbound place that your kids will enjoy.

“monkey forest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

There are still some forest in bandung, LOL.
And you can find some wild monkey here, but not naughty like in ubud or bedugul.
They are very shy and afraid with humans.
There is 2 historical cave here. One is Japanese made, one is VOC made.

Nothing really interesting but a very thick forest.

“Beautiful nature, lack of infrastucture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Great place to take a walk and breathe fresh air. But it lacks adequate safety measures, basic infrastructure (toilets, signage).

“A nice place poorly managed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This place is hidden in the midst of Dago upland villages and in general, it is truly kept poorly below the standard. There are some ancient caves that were built during the World War II, but they are also poorly kept, as seen from the people who offers to borrow you flashlight for free to see the darkness of the cave and in the end charging you 10,000 rupiah ($1) for borrowing one.

If you are there for any reason, be sure to bring good mosquito repellent as there is countless amount of mosquitos, and if you plan on traveling to the cave, be sure to bring your own flashlight.

“Enjoy the walk, enjoy the caterpillar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Came there early in the morning is a huge advantage, fresh air and not too many visitors arrived yet. A great place for a walk and enjoying the various trees and kids can learn a lot for different trees too. We also went into the Japanese cave built by Indonesian forced labors during Japanese occupations in 1942. One other interesting thing near the cave is "Don King Tahura" caterpillar, since its fur seems liked Don king- US boxing promoter. Some of them quite big for caterpillar's size. Basically, before you enter the gate, there already a signage for these caterpillars are not allowed to be killed, so, you better watch your step.
