From the picturesque slopes of lush Mt. Gede-Mt. Pangrango National Park to the scenic southern coastline of Cimaja and Ujung Genteng, Sukabumi is a land blessed with the pristine beauty of nature.
During the Dutch colonial days, the town of Sukabumi and its surroundings was the favored place for rich Dutch tea planters because of its beautiful tropical scenery and cool climate. In 1914 the Dutch Colonial government established a Gemeente or municipality in Sukabumi since many wealthy European and Dutch families lived in this region.
To Sukabumi’s south the land slopes down all the way to the Indian Ocean where lies the town of Pelabuhan Ratu, originally a fishing village now a tourist resort. Further south and away from all the complexity of modern world is the secluded shore of Ujung Genteng. Here, aside from exhilarating waves, one can also gaze at the unspoiled beauty of nature in its fascinating landscape and spectacular sunset.
Located roughly about 5 hours from Jakarta, the splendor of Sukabumi is truly something worth visiting.
