Going there, It's take 20 minutes from our hotel in Ciwidey, West Java. But I enjoy this place. The beautiful View, I suggest to go Situ Patenggang at 10 AM-11 AM and You feel that I feel. Have a Nice Trip !!!!!

Very nice lake with nice vegetation and tea plantations. Can do pedal-boat also. Costed 135K IDR on weekdays, if I remember well.

Wonderful view of a foggy lake. Took a short boat trip around the lake and the kids had fun. They also have lots of food and gift stalls there.

Yes, this really is just a lake. And unfortunately despite the ridiculous tourist entrance fee, they haven't bothered to clean up the rubbish, so you are paying for a lake with rubbish around. If you want to go and spend time having picnics in lakeside huts and buying things from the souvenir shops then this is for you. The weekend... More

We can go to Pulau Cinta (Love Island) by boat. Many boats are ready to take you. The lake is very beautiful and clean.

We visited Patenggang Lake following our trip to Ciwidey in southern part of Bandung. We've seen green view surrounded of the lake because of tea plantation. Yes, this lake is surrounded some of small hills of plantations. Once you arrive there tried to rent a boat and go to the island in the middle of the lake. You will find... More

This lake is different from other lakes that we can find in Bandung and other West Java regions, because at certain times, usually late in the afternoon and especially during the rainy seasons, this cool Patenggang Lake will be covered with thick fog, giving a feeling of mysteriousness. However, it is romantic instead of scary. Here, we can ride a... More

t's a beautiful lake but It is just a lake. Nothing less, but certainly nothing more. That's why we don't understand why they charge you IDR 135.000 (€ 9) per person. Comparing to other much better tourist attractions in Indonesia a visit to the lake is overpriced. And not just a bit. + You can take some nice pictures at... More
