Seriously this place doesn’t have a free place TO SIT! No seat whatsoever. And you must rent a hut, rent a mat, or eat something JUST TO SIT!

This place located not too far from Sentul City, Bogor. Nice place to visit, to enjoy the freshness of nature. Is not a big place but quit good to enjoy. If you want to enjoy more on this place, try to avoid visit on weekend, too crowded. The great time to visit thia place is on weekday.

Short excursion to Bidadari Waterfall
May 2017 • Family
Trip to Curung Bidadari
Curung Bidadari.

Safety steps.

Car must be serviced, checked for the break, tyre condition and other mechanical conditions.

It is recommended to leave as early as possible from Jakarta to beat the traffic.
If you don’t like local restaurant Food, you need to stuff your car. Good restaurants are around 15 km away from the water fall.

Once one approach water fall, lot of water spay welcomes you. Need to cover for
Handphone.
Camera
Or you need water proof camera.
I will not recommend going under water fall, there is every possibility, the water will bring some object from above and can be fatal, if it hit someone under it

About Curung Bidadari area.

We left Jakarta @ 7 AM and reached @ 10 O’clock
It's in Sentul area.

Once one comes out of toll road, the size of road reduces, but still free drive from both sides.
After 5 to 6 km, approaching foot of hilly road, the roads narrow done further, only one car from both sides can just pass.
Speed automatically reduces.

There is no marking on the main road to give you spot location, once you reach there. There is every possibility, you may drive further up. It happened with us, we drove couple of km, ahead and had to return with the help of a biker, who charged us 30,000 just for couple of km going ahead. He could have guided us, but told us, it is far off, while it was less the 2 to 3 km straight road. Better to set GPS map, which actually shows location correctly.

On entrance, many local ask for passage money, which looks illegal, but, who will fight for 2 to 3 k.

Official entrance fee is 35000 plus parking.

From parking you can see the waterfall. And is 2 min walk to waterfall. This water fall is not like others, where you have to go through jungles and tracking.
After parking area, one have to step down 15 to 20 steps down and walk down 2 min, you will be facing the waterfall, easy approach.
Once you face the waterfall selfie syndrome started, couldn’t resist taking some picture and selfie’s.

We had wore the swim tea shirts from home itself and approached the fall. But will advise to hear complete swin dress or have a pair of dress in reserve. You can’t avoid wetting your wear, even if you don’t go inside the water.
The blowing wind, takes water from fall sprays everywhere.

One need camera cover(see in the pictures) or water proof camera, else it may get spoiled due to water spray.

There are 2 pools,
One pool is outside of water fall, which is used by kids and is safe, but still you need to take care of your child safety.
Other pool is under waterfall which is separated from kid pool by big rock. There is a bridge, which take one to waterfall.

Water is clean and cool under the fall. Be careful, while entering the pool under waterfall. There are rock, which are slippery.
I will not recommend going under water fall, there is every possibility, the water will bring some object from above and can be fatal, if it hit someone under it.

It is a short excursion for 2 to 3 hrs and also depends upon ones choice. We spent 3 hrs and left back.
We took lunch at sentul city market.

There is also a big food court with variety of food option , place called “Ahpoong – lembur kuring”.

Overall good short trip, we enjoyed.

Attraction : 4 points out of 5 points.
Facality : 2.5 points out of 5 points
Approach : 3 points out of 5 points
Quality time : 4 points out of 5 points—depends on once choice.

Use to be superb
Jan 2016 • Couples
10 years ago this waterfall was superb, very hard to access but the hard and long walk was worse the effort.
Now they made an ugly and dangerous road access but they destroy all around to make a parking and a "water park", it is just sad... the waterfall itself still beautiful but the surrounding are just being destroy... sad...

So fun!!!
Jul 2016 • Friends
It's in Sentul Paradise Park.. It's such a beautiful place.. but in holiday season you will find many "pak ogah" or "pungli" who ask money at street.. and the fee entrance i think so expensive.. but if you come in weekdays or non holiday, the fee is'n too expensive.. the view is so natural.. by the way, you have to be carefull to drive your car because the street is so bad..

Crowded and a lil bit dirty
May 2016 • Friends
the access to the waterfall is so bad. Be careful if you take a small car since the road is so bad. Every 500m there is local people who will request some money. I will just ignore this. But in the way to go to the waterfall, they will ask u to pay 5k rupiah and in the half way they will ask u to pay again even it's up to you. I give 2k rupiah instead. in the gate they will ask u to pay again 35k/ person and 10k/car and you need to pay the parking also. thats why i won't go to this place again until they manage the place. the water is dirty because so many people swim there and so many rubbish in that area.

Nice Spot for a short get away
Apr 2016 • Solo
Curug Bidarari is located in Bogor, West Java. It can be an option for short get away from the Jakarta. You can take high way and exit in Sentul Selatan. It takes around 30-45 mins from exit. The road is a bit bumpy. The facilities are good enough. Parking space, food and toilets are available. The view is nice. Fresh air. And you can also swim near the Curug. Nice for short getaway...

It was Great, But not Now
Sep 2015 • Family
First time I came here on December 2014, it was still fun. We could do picnic with family. But last month I came here, the place became so terrible. So many people asked for money before entry the main entrance. And we had to add extra money to get higher parking location, it was free before.

I don't want to go there anymore!
