the Green Canyon in West Java

One of the famous tourist places in West Java is the Green Canyon. From Ciamis City it is about 130 kilometers, about 31 kilometers from the renowned Pangandaran beach or half an hour trip by car. The original name of this place in the local tongue is “cukang taneuh,” which means a bridge of land, a piece of ground track that resembles a rising bridge, which is actually formed by a penetrating river below. This path is used by farmers to cross into their gardens.

Other nearby attraction is Batukaras, not far from the local airport of Nusawiru. The name Green Canyon is first coined by a French tourist. The greenish color of river water may be the reason why this place is so called. The cukang taneuh or bridge of land has a width of 3 meters and length of 40 meters connecting the Kertayasa and Batukaras rural areas.

The attraction is represented by a river flow all through the Cijulang cave with stunning stalactites and stalagmites while the river is flanked by two hills of ancient rocks with trees on both banks providing natural unique and challenging attractions to navigate. Right at the upstream is a cave where the bridge of land lies on top.

Before reaching the attractions in the upstream, the river flow is quite long that you may want to swim it up with the flow and waterfalls. For those who like diving, it is advisable to bring scuba gears to enjoy the spectacular scenery through incredible basins along the river depth.
