Situ Patenggang is a lake at Ciwidey Patenggang; located at an altitude of 1600 meters above sea level. It occupied an area about 150 ha. Since it is about 10 mins drive down south from Kawah Putih, as such we thought it make lots of sense to drop by this attraction for a visit after Kawah Putih.
Lake Patenggang is surrounded by greens and tea plantation. In the centre is an island named Sasuka Island. On the island is a Love Stone. For visitors who are interested to venture out, could go for the optional boat ride. But it is at a hefty price tag of IDR 300k. We gave the boat ride a missed.
Instead, walking around Situ Patenggang was our option. The entire place is serene with good amount of sunshine for Vitamin production.
Stop by the only cafe at the entrance for a meal or tea. Shopping option is also available for visitors along a short stretch with some vendors selling mainly local produce and products.
Enjoy the view of the villagers harvesting their catch from the lake.
For photographer fanatic, look for the best spot for a few snap.
Lastly, time for ootd. Take tons of them.
The views around Situ Patenggang maybe picturesque but there isn’t much to do. Personally, we felt the admission ticket to be too pricey. In a nutshell, we don’t think it is worth visiting. Unless you feel that since you are there only once and wouldn’t mind paying, otherwise we wouldn’t recommend.
