My family (with teenage children) go there early January 2014. For the first 15 minutes we only see like we ussualy saw in Borneo. After we get off of our boat that's the time we feel real "green canyon". Torrential stream that we must pass armed with life jackets, great green canyon, Amazed us and making us forget to take pictures . My children had tried to jump from the rocks and it's really "something". It's suitable for family with teen but not for children under 8

We went here on October 14, 2013. We were lucky that the last rain was on October 12, so the water was clear (not as clear as when it was no rain for weeks, though). From Pangandaran, it took us about 80 minutes in the car (there were road works in some part of the road and it slowed us down). We arrived at the boat station, and our driver bought the tickets for us. The boat for maximum 5 passengers was Rp.125,000 return (about 20 minutes to the cave, and 20 minutes back), if we want to swim around the area beyond the cave, the charges was Rp.50,000/30 minutes. We swam and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We passed a big stone like an umbrella, where people climb over and jumped to river from 5 - 6 meters high. We continued our swim against the river flow, to water spring called "mata air Puteri (Princess Spring", we need to climb the wall to arrive to the spring (about 2 meters high). My partner and I were waiting in the water, while my son who was accompanied by our guide climbed to Mata Air Puteri. The local believe that one can keep his/her youth if they wash in that spring.

If you are interested in visiting Green Canyon, you can contact our driver who knows a lot about the areas (Green Canyon, Pantai Karas, Batu Hiu, Pantai Nini, Pemandian 7 Mata Air, Goa Rengganis, Goa Parat, Pantai Pasir Putih, Batu Layar, Batu Buaya, dll).

One of the most beautiful place in Indonesia. You can enjoy body rafting in the fresh water of Cukang Taneuh with the famous name is Green Canyon. The perfect time to go there when summer time, no rain at all. You can see the green to blue water when sunny summer and it's so beautiful. You can jump from the Batu Payung (around 5-7metre) to the fresh green water and see the Kolam Putri with climb around 3 meters from the water. To reach them you will need a boat with capacity max.8 persons with IDR 75,000/boat. Note, the guide only help to reach the Batu Payung, if you wanna continue more until Kolam Putri, you need to pay IDR 100,000 to the guide. Unfortunately, they didn't mention about it until we back to the port.
overall, it's a must visit place in West Java, Indonesia!

Body rafting in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Yes. This place truly is stunning and away from the trash covered beaches of pangandaran. August seemed like the perfect time to go. No rain. Rapids weren't too fast or too slow. The guides look after you very well and supply you with life jackets, water, snacks and all the gear. You can climb up 5 metre high rocks and jump (you don't have too but it was a blast) and you get to float down a few rapids! It's pretty cruisy most of the way. Well worth the money (we paid $25 each in a group of 6). I highly recommend green canyon body rafting!
