Away from Cibodas, and further down the road is the town of Cipanas. Here is the Cipanas Palace, the President’s mountain residence set amidst manicured lawns and refreshing hot springs.

Cipanas has grown into a sizable town, where is a market where tourists come to shop for fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, decorative plants and souvenirs.

And everywhere along the Bogor-Cipanas route up to Bandung there are plentiful hotels, from the most exclusive accommodation complete with meeting facilities, to housing estates, to the more simple accomodation. There are also many flower gardens, fruit gardens, playgrounds and much more for families to enjoy.


Get There

Travel to the mountain region of Puncak, Cibodas or Cipanas is by private car, taxi or tour bus, which on a weekday takes around one and a half hours from Jakarta via the Bogor toll road, but a lot longer during weekends and holidays.   This area is best enjoyed during the week, since the road is normally jam packed on weekends, from Friday afternoons through Sundays, and especially on long weekends and school holidays. At weekends and holidays Police enforces one way traffic hours to ease heavy traffic congestions on these narrow roads, alternating travelling hours for traffic going up or down the mountain to and from Jakarta.

In contrast to Bandung, where you can find modern mall and shopping centers, Lembang is better known for its culinary destinations. The Floating Market Lembang is a colorful and vibrant leisure park, which sells various cuisine on boats.

People say that green is a good color to relieve stress. As a fertile highland, Lembang is lush with plantations: tea, strawberry, and vegetables. You can visit these plantations and pick your own fresh crops or buy them from local farmers. These places are best when you want to get closer to nature.

Get Around

Since Lembang is very close to Bandung, it's easy to find a transportation to get around and enjoy the beauty of its tourism hotspots. Your hassle-free option is to join a tour. Using a tour allows you to have a planned sightseeing without worrying anything. However, if you want more freedom, exploring Lembang by yourself using public transport is very possible. There are taxis, transportation apps,  and public transportations to choose from.

Get There

It takes only about 30 minutes to reach Lembang from the very heart of Bandung. If you are from Jakarta, you need to go to Bandung first, by air or land. If you're planning to drive there, avoid the weekends or public holidays, because what is normally 2-hours trip can turn into 4-6 hours trip.

Using airplane (or helicopter, there are heli-taxi companies in Jakarta offering ride to Bandung) is not necessarily the fastest way to get there considering you have to get to an airport first and wait for the flight. But if you choose to do so, you can hail a taxi from Bandung's Husein Sastranegara Airport to Lembang or hire a personal driver to get you around.

You can also take the train if you like. It takes about three hours from Jakarta to Bandung. The plus side is a scenic route as the train makes its way through the long tunnels and majestic mountains. Once you reach Bandung Station, you have a wide range of transportation choice, such as taxis, ride-hailing apps, and public transportation.

Another way to reach Lembang from Jakarta is by driving a private car or taking public transportations such as bus, minibus, or shuttle bus. The 150 km toll road connecting Jakarta-Bandung makes driving the fastest mean of transportation. Although, it can be very congested on the weekends and public holidays, so make sure you leave early and plan ahead. If you are a foreign tourist, we advise you to take public transportation or rent a car and a driver.

The cool highlands of Subang in West Java provide an idyllic setting for an unforgettable personal experience where the crisp mountain air and the refreshing sounds of bubbling mountain streams soothe the soul.
