Gede Pangrango National Park Travel Guide

Situated in West Java, Gede Pangrango National Park is one of Indonesia’s most popular parks boasting a wide range of natural features such as hot springs, waterfalls and dense forests.

Trekking is a popular pastime in the park and there are a number of beautiful trails to choose from. Some take just over an hour to complete while others lead up the sides of the volcanoes, along ridges and through the forest, taking nearly a day to finish from end to end.
