Little tips : it's quite difficult to go there,since the roads are bumpy.the scenery is good and natural.you can see real worker picking out tea leaves.they have this little path that you can take a walk surrounded by great view of tea leaves.another tips,watch the weather before you're planning to go there,when it's raining you cant enjoy the view.

This place located on the mountain area about 900 metre above the sea level. So it's really have good mountain climate, that's including cold mountain breeze and sometime sky can become suddenly cloudy and raining (even in the summer season). In the day, even the sun may shine brightly but we almost not feel hot because the breeze of cold mountain wind. But in the afternoon, night and especially dawn in the morning,it can become very low in temperature (wear jackets if necessary)

This place actually vast tea plantation which is already running for decade in the old time. And today it's keep operating to produce mainly tea (and some coffee) because its good location supporting to result best tea leaves. But they also provided hotel and villa (bungalows) to rent for visitor which want to stay the day enjoy the tea garden. Some of the home stay facing the tea garden and can give the good scenery.

Facilitation somehow are outdated, because this tea plantation owned and operated by government, so all service is standart. But the positive things is the price become so economically cheap compare other modern/new hotel (i.e compare in Batu/Malang area that more develop). This is also good, we have been there on several National holiday which is for other tourism area tend to became very crowded. But so far seem this place seem not attract too many visitor. Why....??

Because indeed they didn't have much amusement to enjoy. They only have kiddie playground with old simple games, horses riding, ATV rental (both horse and ATV only cost around USD1 to circle around the park), swimming pool with cold fresh mountain water. Kids will be like to ride the horse while older teenager may have fun to ride the ATV. Also small market to buy souvenir/gift (mainly dairy product like coffe and tea) and restaurant/eadting area. And the garden area is readily enjoy by roaming it. We can also use mini train to circle the garden to see more closely inside the tea garden.

The place is amazingly clean, staff keep ready to pick up any small garbage left by visitor. Some security person is on duty and ready to help when people need to ask direction etc

Actually this place is good for relaxing, to really get out from crowded and enjoy quietness of mountain scenery. Indeed what is a vacation if we keep get the crowded on the place we visit. If we stay there, in the morning we can walk around the garden to feel cold air mountain and natural birds song, just back to the nature. But for someone who may like more colourful area with modern facilitation, well, this place may not suitable/recommended to you.

TIPS : If you travel alone or just in couple, recommended to rent the room in Hotel area. Because it is more new and clean/modern but with average price. Hotel room have a good scenery, facing the forest cliff. However if you want to stay with many person, i.e family, friends of group, then you can choose villa/bungalow with more room and economically price. Ask for villa/bungalows that in the garden area for more quiter and good scenery.
