Pink Floyd Concert in Gunung Pancar

The Mountains are my Bones,
the Rivers my Veins.
The Forests are my Thoughts,
and the Stars are my Dreams.
The Ocean is my Heart,
its pounding is my Pulse.
The Songs of the Earth
write the Music of my Soul.

Just a few days before the Eid festival last week in early July 2016, we brought Pink Floyd campervan to Gunung Pancar for family camping. Here are the photo essay:

Classic VW Campervan for branding & marketing

The current technology enable us to change the colour of our cars for temporary, not permanent, without having to costly & time consuming repainting. Thanks to the cutting stickers & large size computer printing technology. It’s available in many places in Indonesian major cities & the price is relatively affordable. If you have complex graphic design, then you would need the computer printing. If the design is simple, then the cutting sticker  will do just fine.
Teknologi masa kini memungkinkan kita mengubah warna mobil sesuai keinginan kita untuk sementara waktu, tak permanen, tanpa harus melakukan proses pencatan yang mahal & lama. Ini berkat teknologi cutting sticker & cetak komputer berukuran besar. Teknologi ini tersedia di kota-kota besar di Indonesia & harganya relatif terjangkau. Jika desainnya rumit, gunakanlah cetak komputer. Tetapi jika desainnya sederhana, maka cutting sticker akan cukup.

Here are a gallery of Jakarta VW Campervan photographs with stickers, due to Customers’ demand.

The participants of Capolaga Camping event conducted by Alumni of ITB – Para peserta acara Camping di Capolaga dari Alumni ITB. Camping bersama ini merupakan acara rutin.

It was in June 2015, a dry season month, on the last weekend before the fasting month of Ramadhan began, we took the two Campervans (Red Hot Chili Peppers & Deep Purple) for camping. There were 36 people in the group consisted of our whole family, with some closed friends of our daughter & friends of ITB alumni with their families.
Pada awal bulan Juni setelah memasuki musim kering, pada akhir pekan terakhir sebelum bulan puasa, kami membawa dua Campervan (Red Hot Chili Peppers & Deep Purple) pergi camping. Rombongan terdiri dari 36 orang yaitu kami sekeluarga beserta beberapa teman dekat anak kami & beberapa alumni ITB bersama keluarga & sanak saudaranya.

The Block F camping ground occupied by tents & Campervans – Area camping Blok F diisi oleh tenda-tenda & Campervan.

We chose a new outdoor place called Wisata Capolaga, located about 3km away from the popular hot spring Ciater (north of Bandung), Subang, West Java. The main attractions of the area are the three natural water falls, which all of them are friendly enough for us to take shower below them, & also several camping grounds.
Kami memilih sebuah tempat wisata outdoor yang relatif baru bernama Wisata Capolaga. Lokasinya sekitar 3km dari perempatan Ciater (sebelah utara Bandung), kabupaten Subang. Atraksi utama tempat ini adalah tiga buah air terjun (disebutnya Curug dalam Bahasa Sunda) yang semuanya dapat dijadikan tempat bermandi, selain beberapa area camping.

Recharging the batteries using solar cells – Mengising ulang batere dengan memanfaatkan sinar surya.

To get there is not difficult. From Pasar Minggu, South of Jakarta, it is about 135km away via Purwakarta-Wanayasa, or 145km via the new Cipali toll way & Subang, or 194km via Bandung-Lembang. At that time, the new Cipali toll way was not opened yet, so from Jakarta we took the Cikampek toll way, exited in Jatiluhur, went through city of Purwakarta to Wanayasa town, got in to the popular Jalan Cagak junction, turned right about 9km uphill until we reached the intersection of Ciater. Take the right turn & the location is 3km away from there. Please drive cautiously since there is a narrow & continuously straight downhill road more than 500m long through a village before reaching the location.
Menuju lokasi tidaklah susah. Dari Pasar Minggu, Jakarta Selatan, jaraknya sekitar 135km jika melalui Purwakarta-Wanayasa, atau 145km lewat jalan toll baru Cipali & kota Subang, atau 194km via kota Bandung & Lembang. Pada waktu kami ke sana awal bulan Juni, toll Cipali belum dibuka, sehingga kami mengambil jalur Purwakarta-Wanayasa; dari toll Purbaleunyi exit di pintu toll Jatiluhur, masuk ke kota Purwakarta, ke arah kota kecamatan Wanayasa, sampai muncul di pertigaan Jalan Cagak. Belok kanan menanjak sekitar 9km sampai ke perempatan Ciater. Masuk ke kanan & lokasinya berjarak sekitar 3km. Mohon mengemudikan kendaraan dengan berhati-hati waktu melewati jalan sempit pedesaan yang menurun panjang & lurus sejauh lebih dari 500m sebelum sampai ke lokasi.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers campervan at the Cikampek toll road – Campervan Red Hot Chilli Peppers di jalan toll Cikampek.

We stayed at the Block F camping ground, nearby Gate 2; the only camping ground where we can park our cars in. Getting near to our cars means we can bring additional extra equipment & more food & water for more convenience.  The maximum capacity of the Block F is 50 people, without the cars. If you park the cars inside, then the capacity is reduced. However, there is a parking lot just next to it. The elevation is about 810m asl. The temperature range is 20-31 Centigrade.
Kami bercamping di Blok F, dekat Gerbang 2; satu-satunya area camping dimana kita dapat membawa mobil masuk. Berada dekat dengan mobil berarti lebih banyak peralatan camping, makanan & minuman yang dapat dibawa untuk kenyamanan kita. Maksimum kapasitas area camping Blok F adalah 50 orang, tanpa mobil. Jika mobil diparkir di dalam, maka kapasitas orangnya akan berkurang. Untuk itu ada tempat parkir kendaraan tepat di sebelahnya. Elevasinya adalah 810m di atas permukaan laut. Temperatur berkisar dari 20-31 derajat Celcius.

Capolaga 8

From this angle, we can see the Block F camping ground clearer – Dari sudut kamera ini, area camping Blok F terlihat lebih jelas.

Block F is located nearby a public toilet (MCK), less than 100m away. There are five bathrooms with squatting type toilet & one bathroom with sitting type toilet. Most of the rooms have light & all have running fresh natural water. Next to the MCK is a musholla.
Blok F tempatnya berdekatan dengan MCK umum, kurang dari 100m saja jaraknya. Terdapat lima buah kamar mandi dengan toilet jongkok & satu buah kamar mandi dengan toilet duduk. Semuanya tersedia dengan air segar pegunungan yang terus-terusan mengalir & juga dilengkapi dengan lampu. Tepat di sebelah MCK terdapat sebuah musholla.

The security gate & office are also located not too far from the Block F, together with the main parking lots & food & souvenirs shops. During weekend, please be prepared that the area will be crowded of visitors & many cars will get in & out back & forth. However, Block F is little separated away & we still keep the privacy.
Gerbang sekuriti & kantor staf juga letaknya berdekatan dengan Blok F, tak jauh dari tempat parkir utama kendaraan & warung-warung suvenir & makanan. Walaupun begitu, Blok F letaknya terpisah sehingga privasinya cukup terjaga.

Goa Badak waterfall – Curug Goa Badak

From there, walking down the hill about 5-10mins, we will get to the 3rd water fall. It’s called Curug Goa Badak (Curug = waterfall, Goa = cave, Badak = rhino, so please interpret yourself). This is the most downstream waterfall out of three; the biggest one, less than 10m tall & the only one with a shallow pool beneath it for us to swim, to play water or to bath. Since it is the closest one to the  parking lot, the waterfall is the most crowded one with visitors.
Dari area tersebut, jalanan menurun sekitar 5-10menit, kita akan sampai ke curug (yang artinya air terjun) no 3. Namanya Curug Goa Badak. Dari tiga buah curug, yang ini letaknya paling di hilir, paling besar, tingginya kurang dari 10m & satu-satunya yang ada kolamnya yang tidak dalam untuk bermain air, berenang & mandi. Karena letaknya paling dekat ke tempat parkir umum, curug ini pun menjadi yang paling ramai dikunjungi orang.

Capolaga 4

Sawer waterfall – Curug Sawer.

From there, walking uphill about 400m to reach the 2nd waterfall; the smallest but the tallest (about 30-40m), called Curug Sawer. During the dry season where the water flow is small, it’s convenient to take a shower beneath it. There are several locations for camping nearby this waterfall. It’s on a valley & the ground is flat. In my opinion, this is the best location for camping, as long as you have no problem carrying all your camping gears, food & water  400-500m away from your car.
Dari situ, jalan ke atas sekitar 400m, kita akan sampai ke curug kedua; curug yang paling kecil tetapi paling tinggi (sekitar30-40m) yang dinamakan Curug Sawer. Pada waktu musim kering, debit air kecil sehingga kita dapat bermain pancuran di bawahnya dengan nyaman. Di sekitarnya ada beberapa lokasi camping di dasar sebuah lembah yang relatif rata. Menurut opini penulis, area di sini adalah lokasi terbaik untuk camping, sepanjang kita tak masalah membawa peralatan camping, makanan & air sejauh 400-500m dari tempat parkir kendaraan.

Karembong waterfall top – Curug Karembong atas.

Walk further uphill about 300m to reach the most upstream waterfalls; the most spectacular ones, the 1st waterfall. Yes, actually there are two water falls in one location & to distinguish them, let me call it Curug Karembong top & Curug Karembong bottom (Karembong = scarf). I call it the most spectacular one due to the contour of the rock walls shaped from different layers of volcanic rocks. If you are brave enough, you can try to climb up the walls. If you are strong enough, you can take a shower beneath the top waterfall one, at least 30m tall, letting your body & head get stomped by the falling water. The water is cold & the wind draft will make it even colder.
Kalau kita jalan lagi ke arah hulu, maka setelah 300m kita akan sampai ke curug no 1 yang paling tinggi elevasinya & yang paling spektakuler. Sebetulnya curug ini terdiri dari dua buah curug yang terpisah atas-bawah sehingga penulis sebut saja namanya Curug Karembong atas & Curug Karembong bawah. Karembong adalah Bahasa Sunda yang artinya selendang. Disebut paling spektakuler karena kontur dinding batu vulkaniknya yang terbentuk secara berlapis-lapis & bergerigi. Jika cukup berani, maka Anda dapat mencoba memanjat dinding batu ini. Jika Anda cukup kuat, maka cobalah mandi di bawah kucuran air di curug yang atas, tingginya sekitar 30m. Airnya dingin & hempasan angin akan membuat tubuh Anda makin kedinginan.

For going back, you can choose to walk through tea plantation, mostly down hill trekking.
Untuk kembali, cobalah jalan balik melewati kebun teh yang treknya relatif menurun.
