Situ Gunung - Gede Pangrango

Start from Jakarta at 2.15AM, the travelling trip to Situ Gunung taken about 2,5 hours. Situ (lake/resevoir) Gunung is part of the area of Gunung (mountain) Gede Pangrango, which also called as Gede Pangrango National Park. At the end of this post, you can see that we were driving surround the Gede Pangrango area.
We almost got lost at Sukabumi Raya street, but Anwar handled it smoothly and arrived at Gede Pangrango before sunrise :)
In the parking lot of entering gateway area, it was still dark, the shops (warung-warung) still closed. Cold, quiet and peaceful, no activity, only huge pines and resins stand tall among us until we found one shop open and having chat to find out the interesting spots on this area, its remind me to our travelling to Situ Cileunca last week.

First destination was Situ Gunung, a 10 hectares artificial lake, around 1 km from the gate. Small lake with some small islands in the west area and surrounded by small hills. We found some local people fishing in the very early morning to catch Nila fish and some villas that manage by Rakata.
We started our activity from the east side to capture the sunrise where the view was amazing when we saw gunung Gede behind the cloud rising together with the appearance of the sun.
The light is too over I think, but the reflection from the calm lake giving me more better pictures. What a natural filter :)

In the north side, another nice reflection from lake interest me and my new BW filter make it more better.
As overall, Situ Gunung is a good place to hangout or gathering if you like natural life, but I think sedan vehicles cannot used on this area. Now move to Curug Sawer.
