Mount Burangrang

This mountain, 2064 meters high above sea level. Located in North Bandung Area (units), separated by a large valley with Mount Tangkubanparahu. Burangrang including parasites old volcano, so that has valleys and in the slice with a steep slope. In Sangkuriang legend, the mountain was of branches (rangrang) Sangkuriang tree used to make boats. Will be angry at the failure, Sangkuriang kick the boat up to reincarnate as Mount Tangkubanparahu, while the tree branches and blossom as the Mount Burangrang.

Climbing to the mountain this can be done from the Bandung and Purwakarta. If the climb from Bandung, we can select multiple channels, including through the Yellow Sands, Legok Haji Lawang Wind or path. Path-the path that consists of paths that split up in the forest and common finish in two to three hours travel. Be careful, a lot of dangerous terrain and thick fog can appear hinder your view.

Burangrang peak marked with a monument (a point of height). From the peak, if the weather is not sunny and hazy, you can see the stunning scenery to the Situ Lembang only visible as a small pool in the middle of the basin is surrounded mountains. Basin is not used to the point of bursting a very broad (kaldera) from the ancient volcano called Gunung Sunda. So, mountain fortify Situ Lembang crater wall is generated by a tremendous explosion. You have to enjoy them because what you see is a rare scene that is not visible to everyone. Enjoy while you breathe in fresh oxygen mountains.

Mount Cikurai

Cikuray identical with a giant cone is one of the mountain, located in the southern city of Garut in West Java. Mount is included in this group of young mountain mountains that are categorized as non-active. Although the mountain is beautiful, but rarely include didaki and dijamah must recognize the popularity and other mountains like Mount Gede and Mount Pangrango CIREMAY. To reach the location of climbing, climber can start from Cilawu, next to the plantation Dayeuh Manggung, before starting to climb this mountain peak. From the area climber can find a tower high enough (TVRI) that later can be a way (guidelines) in a trip to the summit.

As the characteristics of the mountains that form memilikik like this, the water flow will be found difficult or even not at all in the journey to the top of the mountain, and springs in the mountains this is only found in the bottom (or Cilawu Dayeuh Manggung ). Therefore, the climber should bring an adequate supply of water.

To achieve a high mountain peak reaches 2821 meters above sea level, the need of the time for 7 to 12 hours for normal time and at a certain time should diasarankan climber to rest in order to maintain the condition and energy. Because the climbing routes that are still rarely included dijamah people, then we will of the forest are a natural and beautiful, but needs to be remembered by every climber in that during the journey to the top we will find some way of branching, because the instructions to the mountain peak is not clearly as well as Mount Gede who have to use the arrow to reach the peak, the gang leader should always extra careful in taking path climbing because the climber does not a little misguided because in determining the correct path that will be passed in the ascent.

Forest is there in the mountains this is one of the forest which is perfect, because in some parts of the valley slope or almost never dijamah by humans, as evidenced when the author was trying to open a new path, the author does not find ex-ex-exploitation of human beings, and even search kayupun never reach the location.

It was evident from the absence of any trace in the form of a discount department paths, both the top and down the peak. And the situation is different with most of the mountain in Central Java. Mountains in Central Java than Mount Slamet (3428 M) has experienced large-scale exploitation of the forest so as buffer areas around water sources and clean for people to be disturbed even in some places almost found the water flow.

Each climber will feel happy after reaching the peak, as in climbing to the top of Mount Cikurai this. Climber satisfied after reaching the peak. Especially cikurai peak, climber will be the scene are probably different from the top of the mountain scenery on the other, because if we stand at the top of the mountain is more or less the extent of "football field", the view is very clear we will see the surrounding mountains, as there is no any trees or buildings that obstruct our view. Therefore, the climber should culminate in the early days when the sunrise, the landscape probably will never be forgotten.

After climbing the peak is complete, the climber is given the option to decline path. Climber can descend down to the Cikajang or skip lines when the climber early start climbing.

To achieve Cikuray can be increased with the vehicle from the public or from Tasikmalaya Bandung toward terminal Guntur. From the city terminal, we can ride the city transportation department number 06 Garut - Cilawu and down in the portal nusantara tea plantation (PTPN) VIII or Dayeuh Manggung. From here, proceed with the journey on foot around 10 km to the station several television stations as a starting point climb. If you want fast, we can rent motorcycles at Rp.30 ribu per person.
Or 2 can use another path climbing commonplace use (Cikajang & Bayongbong). The three lines offer a very interesting field with characteristics of each. Channel bayongbong path is the most precipitous, but it can quickly reach the peak.
