If you’re looking for something fun to do while enjoying the fresh mountain air over the weekend with your whole family, why don’t you try trekking in Ciherang five waterfalls trail? Located in Sentul, just outside Jakarta, this trail is a super family-friendly one with relatively smooth terrain, and it’s easily navigable. For anyone young to the young-at-heart, there’s bound to be something interesting there! Along the way, you’d be impressed with the unique plants, diverse fauna, and outstanding waterfalls. It’s a great experience for those who are interested in nature. We were so impressed with the silver tattoo fern that you can stamp on the skin or dark clothes. Be prepared to see a bunch of weird and fascinating insects too!
The trail starts at the Curug Putri Kencana entrance and ends at Love Waterfall or Curug Cinta before you trace the same path to get back. Along the way, you will pass several different waterfalls of different sizes, a variety of plantations like nutmeg, pandan, and clove, as well as a bamboo forest. The total distance is about 6 km with a 300 m elevation gain. Go ahead, put on your gear, leave the road, and take the trail.
It’s super family friendly, and is a great experience all-in-all!
Anyone who wants to have some fresh air and enjoy nature!
