Two weeks ago, during the fasting month of Ramadhan, my friend & I went for a camping at Ciapus area, Bogor, about 65km away from Jakarta. This time, we drove our Volkswagen 1303 Super Beetle. I was by myself & my friend brought his 3.5yo daughter & 6.5yo all-black German Shepherd.
The road is pretty much in good condition, though we had to pass some bad traffic areas & several hundreds meter of bad road. The camping ground elevation is about 400m, so not that hot neither that cold, by the foot of Salak mountain in the middle of pine forest. Good thing is, the cell phone signal is acceptable, so you are still connected to the world…
Other good thing is, due to fasting month, there was only us in the camping ground; 3 humans & 1 dog. Felt like our own personal camping ground. We were also allowed to drive our cars & parked them inside the camping ground. On normal days, the cars are parked outside the camping ground.
The toilets (squat type) & bathrooms are available with clean running water, spring water. The toilet is lit at night. Also, places for wudhu or washing your dishes are located in the same area, about 50m away from our tents.
Actually some shops are available there but all of them were closed during Ramadhan. When they are open, instant noodles, snacks & hot-cold drinks are available. Rice & heavy dishes only available upon request.
There is a pool on the nearby river where we can swim safely. The spring water is clean, clear & fresh. The size is about 10m x 10m. The deepest part is 150cm with rocks on the pool floor. The location is about 100m from our tents.
The name of the place is purposely not written here to maintain the ‘privacy’. Please contact us directly if you are interested to visit it.
Here are some photographs with some famous camping quotes:
