Spend the Weekend in Ancol, North Jakarta

Spend the Weekend in Ancol, North Jakarta

My best friend this time I will discuss what is good about Ancol or known as the Ancol Dream Park. Come see the following:

Ancol is a kelurahan in Pademangan sub-district, North Jakarta. This village has a postal code 14430. The Ancol village has a population of 18,055 people and an area of ​​577.28 Ha km2.

This village is bordered by the Java Sea in the north, the Java Sea in the east, Sunda Kelapa in the west, and the Tiram River in the south.

Ancol means rich boiling soil. In the past, when the sea was tide brackish water the time Ancol turned to land flooded the surrounding land so that it felt salty. Naturally, when Dutch VOCs referred to the area as Zoutelande. The salty land that was also given to the fort was built there in 1656 (De Haan 1935: 103 – 104).

To connect the city of Batavia, which at that time was fortified with these strongholds, it was previously made a canal, the Ancol Canal, which until now can still be navigated by boat. Then a road that was parallel to the canal was built.

Making canals, roads and fortifications there, because they are considered strategic within the framework of the defense of the city of Batavia. The strategic nature of the Ancol area seems to have been felt at a time when Islam began to spread in the coastal areas of the Kingdom of Sunda. In Koropak 406, Carita Parahiyangan, Ancol was mentioned as one of the battlefields in addition to Kalapa Tanjung Wahanten (Banten) and other places during the reign of Syria (1521-1535).

Many things you need to know about in Ancol, there is a vehicle called Dufan or known as Dunia Fantasi, not only visited by children but teenagers and even adults also join Dufan’s excitement. Well this time we discuss about the outside of Dufan aka Ancol, friend.

Who is not familiar with Ancol, Ancol is a tourist place that is often visited by local and non-local tourists and even abroad. Not only made a family weekend tourist destination, a gathering place with friends, coworkers or a grand reunion of true singers. But Ancol was also visited for Praweeding, a friend like yesterday’s artist, just call Mas Vicky Prasetyo. But don’t be insecure ordinary people can also celebrate praweeding here.

In Ancol, if a friend goes by a private vehicle, either a motorbike or a car to park, friends will surely meet first this time here. Yup dinosaur sculptures made through woven from dried coconut leaves are best friends. Pretty creative and interesting to visit.

Arriving at the parking lot, friends will all board the bus area and it is free, all friends, in Ancol there are many interesting and good places to be used as photo spots using backgrounds such as beaches, buildings etc.

Still in the Ancol Zone outside the context of Dufan’s review, all friends can also ride Cabel Park, all of which are exciting.

Travellovers, Gunung Banyak is one of the mainstay destinations in Batu City. Precisely on Jalan Songgokerto, Batu District, Batu City. Well for the height itself is around 1,326 masl. Ohiya this place is also the cornerstone of the take-off of paragliding athletes and was first used for the East Java PON VI event.

Gunung Banyak is not too high and is suitable for beginners who want to experience the sunrise in the morning. And for those who want to try paragliding, it’s really good. Because Gunung Banyak is not only a tourist spot, it is also a place for paragliding.

My trip this time to Gunung Banyak, intentionally done at night, because I and my friends want to enjoy the beauty of Batu City at night from a height and also of course sunrise hunting.

The track to Gunung Banyak is also good, but if you choose to travel at night, be careful, because the net is dark. But usually when the night is rather crowded along the way. Many stalls also serve a lot of food, if you are hungry or sleepy you can pull over first.

HTM entered Wana Wisata Wana Wisata that was 10 thousand, because I left for five to 50 thousand plus parking for 10 thousand cars to 60 thousand. This Gunung Banyak is open 24 hours, except the Sky and Paragliding Parks. So if you intend to spend the night here it really works.

Ohiya, if the new beginner make it a habit to bring personal equipment, because the temperature is quite cold. Bring a jacket that is thick enough, gloves and socks to make it warmer. For example, if you forget, there are also many who sell here. Because the stalls here are open 24 hours, so even if you lapers don’t need to worry. The toilets here are quite a lot and there are also schools for Muslims to worship.

The distance to climb from the parking lot to Gunung Banyak is not far away, and the pedestrian track is very safe. So there is no need for complete climbing equipment to come here. Ohiya if you don’t bring your tent you can rent here, yeah.

In the evening besides the cooler air, you will be presented with a very epic view from the height. You can see the beautiful Stone City at night. Like thousands of stars in the sky that radiate each other a beautiful sparkle.

The next morning, after dawn we will be presented with a view that is no less beautiful than at night. From the eastern horizon, the sun shyly the cat began to reveal himself. A very beautiful golden light greeted us. Indeed, this expensive sight is what we’ve been waiting for on Gunung Banyak. A very mating combination of the beauty of the sun’s rays plus the white clouds around it. Sunrise on Gunung Banyak makes me feel at home for long.

So travel lovers, I suggest if you come here you should stay well. Because it’s really a shame if you come here you don’t see the sunrise.
