Well, as for the reference, there is Cigamea Waterfall of Pamijahan Sub-District. The location is in Gunung Sari Village and it is the part of Salak Mountain, actually. So, what makes it unique? Once arriving at the site, tourists may find two types of waterfalls offering a distinct characteristic. The first one is located near to the entrance while another resides a little bit far ahead.

The Nuance
In a nutshell, visitors are able to witness two different waterfalls within the same area! The one that resides near to the entrance features a steep cliff and several black rocks. When it comes to the second waterfall, it is located about 30 meters apart from the first one. Also, the size is taller with the height of about 50 meters. One thing that makes it special is the presence of natural bath on where tourists can swim! Unlike the first one, this pond is wider so everyone can play water comfortably here. Despite the difference, both are surrounded by tropical plants and shady trees!

Exploring Cigamea Waterfall
“Cigamea” is a local language and it has the meaning of rumbling. As the name suggests, the waterfall has a strong water discharge so it makes so much noise. Even tourists can hear the sound of gurgling water from hundreds of meters apart! The next thing that makes it popular is the strategic location. The fact is that Cigamea is the part of Halimun Salak Mountain National Park, so tourists won’t miss the opportunity to visit it when heading to that mountain for sure. Moreover, the distance is only 1 hour and 30 minutes apart.

It is true that tourists need to pay the entrance fee first in order to get to the site. Have no worries. The fee is quite cheap, so everyone can afford it even kids. Moreover, the entrance ticket has included the parking fee, as well. From the entrance, tourists should walk for about 200 meters to get to the first waterfall.
