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.

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

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
