We had a wonderful time here. They charged 150,000 Ruppiah or about $12 US for me because I'm white. Or from the US. Everyone else in the car got charged $.40. The road leading in to the park is strewn with garbage on both sides....More

A 3 hours trip to get here (with some stops), paid off when we got there. You'll need to pay IDR 10,000 for the entrance then the real journey began. The roads after the entrance were good enough (with some little bumpy ones), and if...More
