7 Outdoor Adventures in Bandung - Top 7 Outdoor Activities and Excursions to Enjoy during a Trip to Bandung

As one of Indonesia's most rugged and picturesque regions, the district of Bandung offers adventure travellers a host of exciting experiences. From exploring caves to hiking up to waterfalls, here are some of the best things to do during a getaway in boundless Bandung.


Splash around Sanghyang Heuleut

Occupying pride of place in Rajamandala Kulon, this breathtaking lake is not only encircled by mammoth rocks but one of the area's favourite bathing hubs. Those who wish to push themselves may want to dive into the lake from one of the boulders surrounding the lake, which can be as high as 5 metres.


Trek Up to Uncover the Curug Cimahi Waterfall

Towering above the surrounding landscape at a height of nearly 75 metres, the Curug Cimahi Waterfall is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in Bandung. Tourists who wish to catch a glimpse of this impressive cascade located 10 kilometres away from the heart of Bandung city must trek up to its location in the thick of a forest where they can also marvel at the local flora and fauna along the way.


Go Hiking in Gunung Batu

Blessed with visually arresting landscapes, hiking fanatics will find no finer trail than the one set across this rugged terrain. Offering hikers spectacular views from its vaulted height, Gunung Batu is also a great place to camp out for the night and await the sunrise. Those who venture up this mountain in the morning hours should be wary of the thick fog that is prevalent during this time of day and take the necessary precautions.


Camp at the Pine Forest

Digital nomads based at FOX Harris Hotel City Center Bandung or any other hotel in Kuta, Bali, who wish to truly get away from it all can enjoy a camping trip in the Pine Forest. With modern amenities and a stunning backdrop at one's disposal, this well-maintained campsite can accommodate up to a hundred campers. What's more, the Pine Forest Lembang facility also remains the only campsite in the area with its own bathrooms and outdoor activity plans.


Bike across the Ciwidey Scenic Route

Mountain bikers heading to Bandung must peddle down the Ciwidey route to truly experience the beauty of the Ciwidey-Cidaun track. Counted among the most scenic biking hotspots in Bandung, this track is found in the same region as Mount Simpang and is strictly reserved for mountain bikers with experience. The challenging ride includes plenty of sticky spots but that's precisely the point of biking around local villages, tea plantations, rivers and rickety wooden overpasses.


Enjoy an Off-Road Adventure in Lembang

Off-road adventurers can tackle Lembang's captivating track, which cuts across tea gardens and pine forests. Situate in Sukawana Village, the length of the track is around 18 kilometres, which can prove to be a challenge for even the most experienced drivers as it takes nearly three hours to complete due to the unevenness of the terrain.


Discover the Cave in Cipatat

A tour of Pawon Cave is a must for all those who are visiting Bandung for the first time as it is both an archaeological attraction as well as an engaging outdoor excursion.
