Visitors usually take advantage of the peaceful nuance of the site for relaxation and they use it for photography. Some people also enjoy bathing in its natural pond!

The Nuance
In terms of nuance, Cadas Ngampar Waterfall is indeed peaceful due to its secluded location. That means the environment is suitable to enjoy relaxation and finding peace. Here is the unique thing. The waterfall only has the height of 7 meters and it features a natural pond with the depth of 5 meters. What is next? The small rocky cliff surrounds the waterfall, which consists of volcanic stones. It is said those stones were formed due to the explosion of Salak Mountain in 1699.

Exploring Cadas Ngampar Waterfall

Moreover, they may find another impressive waterfall during trekking called Penganten later. Not to mention they can enjoy stunning natural panorama including local farms, hills, tall cliffs, etc. As for the level of difficulty, the route is rocky and a little bit steep so everyone should be careful when trekking. Later, they also need to pass through a pine forest before reaching the site.

Once seeing a river, they must have arrived at the site! It is because the waterfall gets the water from that river. The water is clear and it feels quite soothing, especially for those who want to take a bath in it. Not only they can swim in the river, but they can use the natural pond of Cadas Ngampar Waterfall as well. It is considered deep, though, so tourists must not be careless when swimming or playing water in it. For parents with kids, they must not let their children getting in the pond!

The safest activity to do in Cadas Ngampar Waterfall is indeed photography. Tourists only need to use their camera find some good spots to capture some beautiful good pictures or selfies.
