Group camping with CVI (Camper Van Indonesia) Jakarta Raya

At present, there is a fast growing campervan community, which is so called CVI (Camper Van Indonesia). The members, based on their fb page, are around 91 thousands. That is a lot.

The logo of CVI (Camper Van Indonesia) community.

To manage that huge numbers of members and geographically spread around the country, the community is then divided into smaller groups based on geography where they live. One of the largest ones is CVI 013 Jakarta Raya (greater Jakarta). 013 is the group number, which is a lucky number.

The logo of CVI Jakarta Raya.

CVI Jakarta Raya held a group camping on 26-28 August 2022, at Sari Ater Campervan Park, Subang, West Java. This is located about 150km from Jakarta and the elevation is around 1000m above sea level.

Crowded Sari Ater campervan park.

Jakarta VW Campervan’s Deep Purple joined the group camping.
Completed with camping flags as a tradition.
Electricity is available so the camping ground was bright and full of camping lights at night.
That hill is called Gunung Palasari, 1250m asl, and trekking route is available.
The group camping was attended by almost 50 cars from CVI Jakray. So it was crowded.
The big banner says Camping Merdeka, meaning: Independence Camping, in commemorate the independence day of Indonesia (every 17 August).
On the 3rd day, before returning to Jakarta.
Sari Ater campervan park is probably the most popular and most visited campervan ground in the country. It is advisable to make a reservation before you visit, just to ensure you will get a spot for your car / campervan, especially during the weekend or holidays. Please call: +62 81387355525.

VW Super Beetle Duo at Bukit Citamiang Camping Ground

This is a late post, but late is better than never; the wise man said. It was in September 2020 and after several months of “staying at home” due to the pandemic, we decided to go out for a quick camping for refreshing. The family did not join purposely, only two of us, accompanied by a German Shepherd.

The camping ground is so called Bukit Citamiang (i.e. Citamiang Hill), only around 60km away from South of Jakarta, towards Puncak. It is written as Citamiang Camping Ground in Google Map. Take the main road to Puncak and take a left turn in the Mega Mendung junction. It is only 6km away from the junction through a small road which it will be more winding and ascending as it goes deeper and higher. If it is your first time, then please follow the Google map direction closely. The tricky one is the last junction and followed by steep uphill road before entering the camping ground area. Generally the road is good for 2wd regular cars. Special precautions should be taken when you drive relatively a wide and large vehicle due to some sharp corners and narrow road.

The two VW Super Beetles have just arrived on site after 1.5hrs driving from Jakarta.
Setting up a roof tent is quick and easy, relatively is faster than the conventional dome tent.
One of the best things about Bukit Citamiang is the spectacular view at night.
Setting a bonfire after dark is a must on site. The wood is provided locally with reasonable price.
When you like photography, you can do many things after dark or during the twilight hour. Just don’t forget to bring your tripod and flash light along with the camera.
Here is another sample a night photograph using long exposure setting. BTW, 19 centigrade is nice; wearing short is still convenient and not too cold…
They said that Bukit Citamiang is one of a very few places where you can view all three mountains in one spot. Here you can see Mount Pangrango (3,019m ASL) and Volcano Gede (2,958m ASL) right next to it to the left (in this picture, it is covered by some clouds). BTW, the elevation of Bukit Citamiang is around 1000m Above Sea Level.
Here is the view of Mount Salak (2,211m ASL). In the morning you have to be quick to shoot them using your camera, otherwise you will miss them as they will be covered by stubborn clouds already.
This is Nelsie, a 9 year old female all-black German Shepherd. You know her already as we have taken her along to camping several times already.

That is a photography-story about Bukit Citamiang camping ground. It is unfortunately to hear that this camping ground is now temporarily closed. The good news is there is another camping ground just next to it, called Bukit Brader camping ground. The PIC is the same; Kang Dillah, WA +62 878 9570 0127. Please make sure you call him first before visiting the place.

This is 1974 VW 1303 Super Beetle, equipped with a custom made roof rack to accommodate the heavy roof tent.

Yearbook Photo with a VW classic van

Early on March a few weeks ago, we took Pink Floyd campervan to our children’s school in South Jakarta for taking a yearbook photographs.

Here are the results with some remarkable quotes about friendship as the captions.


“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”


“You and I are more than friends. We’re like a really small gang.”



“Boyhood is the longest time in life for a boy. The last term of the school-year is made of decades, not of weeks, and living through them is like waiting on the millennium.”


“I am not a word, I am not a line.
I am not a girl that can ever be defined.
I am not fly, I am levitation.
I represent an entire generation.”


“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.” – Eleanor Roosevelt


“There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and live just a little bit better.”

Campervan camping in Gunung Pancar (again)

Here we are, camping in Gunung Pancar again. Gunung Pancar is a favorite place because it’s near from Jakarta, good access road, not too high elevation (only around 400m asl) & not far from a supermarket or convenience stores for the supplies.
Untuk kesekian kalinya, kami kembali camping di Gunung Pancar. Tempat ini sudah menjadi favorit karena letaknya yang dekat dari Jakarta, aksesnya mudah, elevasinya tidak terlalu tinggi (hanya 400m dpl) & tidak jauh dari supermarket atau toko retail.

Pancar M89 10In honoring to two of our college friends; one is still under a medical treatment & another one is having a vacation in Indonesia (he lives in Zurich, Switzerland) I gave them the idea to do an easy camping in Gunung Pancar, bringing a campervan; something they wanted to know. Another friend joining us with his 9yo son & 5yo female Doberman.
Untuk menghormati dua orang kawan kuliah dulu; satu sedang menjalani pengobatan & satu lagi sedang berlibur ke tanah air (beliau tinggal di Zurich, Swiss), saya mengajak mereka camping ke Gunung Pancar dengan menggunakan campervan, sesuatu yang sebelumnya membuat mereka penasaran. Satu kawan lagi bergabung membawa putranya berumur 9 tahun & anjing Dobermannya berumur 5 tahun.Pancar M89 9It was two days after Eid Al-Fitr; the Jagorawi toll road had a 1km long traffic jam before the Sentul City exit, the place was crowded with people, motorcycles & cars. Yes, it was still holiday season. Compared with the last time I came here, this time was completely different; too many visitors, littering garbage everywhere & bad traffic. The good news was we got the best camping spot; the same spot when we were here in January.
Waktunya hanya dua hari sesudah Lebaran; jalan tol Jagorawi macet parah 1km sebelum pintu keluar Sentul City, tempatnya penuh dengan pengunjung, sepeda motor & mobil. Betul, masih dalam masa liburan. Berbeda dengan waktu kami camping di sini di bulan Januari lalu, sekarang lokasinya terlalu ramai, sampah berserakan di mana-mana & lalu lintas yang padat. Kabar baiknya adalah kami mendapatkan spot camping yang terbaik, yang sama dengan camping terakhir lalu.

Pancar M89 3So we spot the Deep Purple campervan in the same position. This time we rigged up three tents on the flat field below. When the dusk coming by, many visitors disappeared. Only a few families setting up their tents nearby. We enjoying more as the place became quieter.
Kami memarkirkan Deep Purple di tempat yang sama. Lalu kami mendirikan tiga buah tenda di lapangan yang datar di bawahnya. Menjelang senja hari, banyak pengunjung yang kembali pulang. Hanya beberapa keluarga yang bercamping malam itu. Lokasinya pun menjadi tenang & lebih menyenangkan.

Pancar M89 4 Pancar M89 5

One thing to tell is regarding the female Doberman; Gamma. She is very well trained by her owner. She obeys her master’s commands to stay, to sit, to get into her portable kennel, to get out, etc. She didn’t really get distracted by the crowded. She was pretty much focusing to her master. And she was a very good guard dog, guarding us during the night. She didn’t bark at all during the stay but she could detect if somebody has a bad intention to us; what Cesar Millan always says ‘the negative energy’ that dogs feel & see. In this situation, without barking, she will show her stand & if the guy keep approaching, she will bite, a bad bite.
Ada satu hal yang menarik untuk diceritakan di sini yaitu anjing Doberman betina yang diajak camping bernama Gamma berumur 5 tahun. Kelihatan sekali bahwa anjing ini sangat terlatih. Gamma menurut apa saja yang diperintahkan oleh tuannya sekaligus pelatihnya untuk diam di tempat, duduk, untuk masuk ke dalam kandang portabelnya, untuk keluar kandang, dsb. Gamma tidak begitu terdistraksi oleh keramaian melainkan tetap fokus kepada pelatihnya. Anjing ini juga anjing penjaga yang baik, menjaga kami di waktu malam. Selama di tempat camping, Gamma tidak menggonggong sekalipun. Anjing ini dapat mendeteksi kalau ada orang yang berniat jahat, sesuatu yang sering disebutkan oleh Cesar Millan sebagai ‘energi negatif’ yang dirasakan & dilihat oleh anjing. Dalam situasi seperti ini, tanpa menggonggong, Gamma akan berdiri menghadang & jika orang berniat jahat tersebut tetap maju, maka Gamma akan menyerang & menggigit, yang dapat mengakibatkan cedera serius.

Pancar M89 6Bombay Matano 1

Next time, I will bring my Labrador & perhaps my Beagle camping with her & let them be trained by my friend.
Lain waktu, saya akan membawa serta Labrador saya & mungkin juga Beagle untuk camping bersama Gamma & akan memberi kesempatan kepada kawan saya untuk coba melatihnya.

Pancar M89 7Eating, cooking, talking, drinking, cooking, eating, talking, etc. that’s all we did spending the evening & the night. We also set up a bonfire & burned a few marshmallows. It was a dry season so we had no worries of getting rain.
Makan, memasak, ngobrol, minum-minum, memasak, makan, ngobrol, dsb. Hanya itulah yang kami lakukan bersama mengisi waktu sore & malam. Kami juga menyalakan api ungun & memanggang marshmallow. Di tengah musim kering, kami tidak kuatir akan turun hujan.

Pancar M89 8It was a pleasant quick & easy camping with my old friends. Usually I do camping with my family. We enjoy our friendship. By the next morning, we left the place back to Jakarta. Gunung Pancar, for sure, sooner or later, we’ll be back with the campervans.
Acara campingnya cukup singkat tetapi sangat berkesan diluangkan bersama-sama kawan lama. Biasanya saya camping bersama keluarga. Kami menikmati persahabatan ini. Di pagi harinya, kami kembali pulang menuju Jakarta. Cepat atau lambat, kami pasti akan kembali ke Gunung Pancar.

The VW Beetle: by the numbers

The VW Beetle: by the numbers.
VW Beetle: menurut angka-angka

On July 31, 2003, Volkswagen Beetle was officially discontinued. I’m left with mixed emotions. I’m saddened because a piece of our hobby is officially no more & worried about the future of spare parts supply, but on the other hand, the VW Beetle can now truly become a part of history. Most of us were not alive when VW started building them, but we can all be happy to say we were here when they stopped.
Pada tanggal 31 Juli 2003, Volkswagen Beetle secara resmi dihentikan produksinya. Sebagai seorang pecinta VW, perasaan saya bercampur aduk. Sedih karena salah satu hobby secara resmi diberhentikan & kuatir suku cadang akan hilang di masa depan. Tetapi di sisi lain, VW Beetle sudah tegas menjadi bagian dari sejarah. Hampir semua di antara kita belum lahir pada waktu VW mulai membuatnya, tetapi bolehlah kita semua senang karena kita hadir pada waktu mereka menghentikannya.

Introducing to you our Picnic Beetle; 1974 1303 Super Beetle – Perkenalkan VW Kodok kepunyaan kami yang diberi nama Picnic Beetle, sebuah 1303 Super Beetle buatan tahun 1974…

After 58 years, Volkswagen & its factories around the world turned out 21,529,464 examples of the People’s Car. Thought it isn’t the most produced car in history anymore, VW still holds the tile (Rabbit / Golf is hit more than 25 million mark).
Selama 58 tahun, dari berbagai pabrik Volkswagen di seluruh dunia telah memproduksi 21,529,464 buah VW Beetle. Angka ini sempat bertengger di puncak rekor, sebelum dikalahkan oleh produk VW lainnya, Golf (di Amerika disebutnya Rabbit) yang sudah mencapai lebih dari 25 juta unit.

This is one classic view of a VW Beetle; in the middle of an open grass field – Salah satu foto klasik VW Beetle yaitu di tengah lapangan rumput terbuka…

A near impossibility is to picture 21,529,464 VWs. Go out to your garage or driveway, look at your beetle & picture that one car 21,529,463 more times down your street. I’ll bet you can’t, because for starters, you can’t physically see that far. If you line up end to end all Beetles ever made, your street would be a traffic jam 86,280km long – a quarter of the way to the moon – & stacking them one on top of the other, it would form a pile of Beetles 32,130km high. On the average, one Beetle came off the production line one every 85 seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 58 years. That’s 18,300,044 tons of Beetles, more than 345 HMS Titanics, three Empire State Buildings or the combined average weight of every person in America in 2003.
Hampir mustahil melihat langsung VW Beetle sebanyak 21,529,464 buah. Pergilah keluar, lihat mobil VW Beetle Anda parkir di depan rumah & coba bayangkan ada 21,529,463 mobil sejenis lagi yang parkir di belakangnya. Bisa? Saya pikir tak akan bisa, karena keterbatasan penglihatan kita tak dapat melihat sejauh itu. Jika semua VW Beetle yang sudah pernah dibuat berbaris di jalanan, maka kemacetan dahsyat sepanjang 86,280km akan terjadi – jarak ini sama dengan ¼ jarak bumi ke bulan – & jika ditumpukan satu per satu, maka tumpukannya akan mencapai 32,130km tingginya. Kalau dirata-ratakan, sebuah VW Beetle dibuat dalam waktu hanya 85 detik, non-stop selama 24 jam sehari & 7 hari seminggu selama 58 tahun. Total beratnya mencapai 18,300,044 ton, setara dengan lebih dari berat 345 buah kapal HMS Titanic, atau tiga gedung Empire State Building atau total berat rata-rata semua penduduk Amerika di tahun 2003.

“…Spread your little wings & fly away…” Queen, Spread Your Wings, 1977

The numbers are staggering, especially considering the massive amount of minute parts that go along with them. If there’s 21,529,464 Beetles , that means that they were equipped with 301,412,496 light bulbs, 17,397km of fan belts & 107,647,320 tires (five each). Standing one next to another, the tires would stretch from Los Angeles to Calcutta India, 13,590km away, which is twice the length of the Nile River in Africa. There are 688,942,848 fender bolts, three for every person in this country; 86,117,856 pistons, enough to make a pile of pistons 1.6km high, 1.6km wide & 1.6km thick; & 109,117,856 lug nuts, one for every baby born in the world in 2003. If we put these lug nuts end to end, it would be a chain 3,128km long & weight 10,229 tons, more than the Queen Mary.
Angka-angka ini bertambah dahsyat untuk berbagai komponen kendaraan yang dipakai. Untuk jumlah 21,529,464 unit VW Beetle, maka ada 301,412,496 buah bohlam lampu, tali kipas sepanjang 17,397km & ban berjumlah 107,647,320 (masing-masing 5 ban di satu unit). Jika ban-ban ini diberdirikan berjejer, maka panjang barisannya akan menyambungkan kota Los Angeles di Amerika sampai ke kota Kalkuta di India sepanjang 13,590km, yang juga dua kali lipat panjang Sungai Nil di Afrika. Komponen lainnya; ada 688,942,848 buah baut bemper, setiap orang di Amerika akan mendapat masing-masing 3 buah baut ini; 86,117,856 buah piston, cukup untuk membuat tumpukan piston setinggi 1.6km, lebar 1.6km & tebal 1.6km; & 109,117,856 buah mur lug, satu untuk setiap bayi yang lahir di dunia di tahun 2003. Jika mur lug ini dijejerkan, maka panjangnya akan mencapai 3,128km dengan berat 10,229 tons, lebih berat daripada kapal Queen Mary.

Ready to take the whole family for a picnic – Siap untuk membawa Anda piknik sekeluarga…

If all of the Beetles’ back seats were stacked up on top of each other it would be a tower 4,349km high, & if we tiled them out they would completely cover 111-square km Nantucket Island. If we filled up the tanks of all the Beetles, it would drain half of the Lake Ontario, & if we bottled all the oil used in all the Beetles it would fill 40 million wine bottles, nearly twice the oil that was spilled by the Exxon Valdez in 1989. Enough headliner material has been used by VW to cover Manhattan Island almost twice, & line up all the valves side by side & it would stretch from New York across the Atlantic to Paris. If you laid out the VW logo hood ornaments from all the Beetles it would cover 11,515-square meter, enough to completely blanket two football fields, & if you lined them up, it would stretch from Montana to the North Pole.
Jika semua kursi belakang VW Beetle ditumpukan satu per satu, maka tingginya akan mencapai 4,349km & jika didudukan berdempetan, maka luasnya akan mencapai 111 km persegi seluas Pulau Nantucket. Jika semua tangki bensin VW Beetle diisi, maka volumenya sama dengan setengah isi Danau Ontario. Kalau oli mesinnya ditampung di botol, maka akan diperlukan botol wine sebanyak 40juta buah, jumlah oli ini yang sama dengan hampir dua kali lipat volume minyak mentah yang ditumpahkan oleh kapal tanker Exxon Valdez di tahun 1989. Material plafonnya yang dipakai akan cukup untuk membungkus Pulau Manhattan dua kali. Jika semua katup mesin dijejerkan, maka panjangnya akan menyambungkan kota New York di Amerika menyeberang samudera Atlantik sampai ke kota Paris di Perancis. Jika semua logo VW (yang terletak di atas kap bagasi depan) dipasangkan berdampingan, maka luasnya akan mencapai 11,515 meter persegi, yaitu seluas dua lapangan sepak bola. Jika logo ini didirikan bersebelahan, maka panjangnya akan mencapai jarak dari negara bagian Montana sampai Kutub Utara.

The average fuel capacity of all the Beetles total 855,838,562 liters, which is enough fuel to keep 100 Boeing 747s flying non-stop for nearly five years (provided they used regular gas). Though the cargo volume changed periodically through the course of production, they all add up to roughly 6.1 cubic km worth of space, which is equal to the amount of mountain blown off by the Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980 (roughly 433m of the summit).
Jika dijumlahkan, maka kapasitas volume tangki bensin Beetle total mencapai 855,838,562 liter. Jumlah ini cukup untuk menggerakkan 100 buah pesawat Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet terbang selama lima tahun non-stop (kalau misalnya bahan bakarnya menggunakan bensin). Jika volume bagasi dijumlahkan, maka totalnya akan mencapai 6.1 km kubik, yaitu volume dari material gunung yang dilontarkan pada waktu gunung berapi St. Helens meletus di tahun 1980.


In ITB (Institut Teknologi Bandung), Bandung – Gedung di belakang adalah ciri khas Kampus ITB, Bandung…

The most important figures that come out of all of this is that 21,529,464 people around the world bought, drove & enjoyed a brand new Volkswagen Beetle from a dealership sometime in their lives. This event, this source of pride for 21,529,464 people, happened daily for 58 years & after July 31, 2003, will never happen again.
Angka-angka yang paling penting sebetulnya adalah ada 21,529,464 orang yang telah membeli, mengemudikan & menikmati sebuah VW Beetle baru dari show room di salah satu masa hidupnya. Kebahagiaan & kebanggaan ini dimiliki oleh 21,529,464 orang, setiap hari selama 58 tahun & berakhir di tanggal 31 Juli 2003.

Then again, maybe 10 years after they bought them, 90% of those 21,529,464 people sold their VW to 19,376,517 more people, & 10 years after that, 90% of those people may have sold their VW to 17,438,865 more people… & the cycle has continued & will continue possibly for endless generations.
Mungkin, 10 tahun kemudian setelah para konsumen ini membeli VW Beetle, 90% dari 21,529,464 orang telah menjualnya kepada 19,376,517 orang lain yang berbeda. Lalu 10 tahun berikutnya lagi, 90% orang tersebut telah menjualnya kembali kepada 17,438,865 orang yang berbeda … & siklus ini terus berlanjut & berlanjut sampai kepada generasi yang tak berujung.

VW Campervan is the most famous campervan in the world. They pioneered the campervan world as we know it today back in the 1950’s. The combination of a compact van equipped with all the basics of your home was & still is the most practical combination to explore the world far beyond the imaginary fence of your home. The words freedomadventure are what to describe these vans.  And now, they are here in Indonesia & available for rental, for yourself or with your family, friends & loved ones, for a weekend camping or simply a day trip picnic outside the town.
VW Campervan adalah kendaraan campervan yang paling terkenal sedunia. VW memelopori jenis kendaraan yang sekarang disebut campervan ini di tahun 1950-an. Kendaraan jenis ini sangat populer karena Anda dapat membawa rumah secara praktis untuk dibawa jalan-jalan keluar. Bebas menjelajah adalah dua kata yang sangat jelas mendefinisikannya. Sekarang, campervan ini telah hadir di Indonesia & tersedia untuk disewa untuk Anda sendiri, atau untuk mengajak sekeluarga camping di akhir pekan atau piknik keluar kota, bersama teman atau siapa saja yang Anda cintai.
