Trekking Bodogol Nature Reserve

  • One Day
  • Easy

Proceed to Bodogol (approximately 1.5 hour drive in normal traffic conditions from Jakarta). A conservation spot on the foot of Gede Pangrango mountain. First, we need to drive close to Lido Lake, a small lake close to the site. Walk for about 30 minutes passing through the local garden/farmland to the entrance of the site.

Walk deep into the jungle of Bodogol, walk on the canopy bridge, and observe the rich diversity of flora and fauna life of the park. The park is home to the Javan eagle, Javan gibbon, Lutung, etc.

Located within the Mount Gede Pangrango National Park, the Bodogol Conservation & Jabban Gibbon Center is a living laboratory for researchers. The park is equipped with a canopy trail, hanging twenty-five meters above ground, a walkway suspended between trees where visitors can bird watch and get a glimpse of wildlife living in the rainforest canopy. Established in 2003, it was the result of a collaboration between the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and the Javan Gibbon Foundation. The center is supported by Conservation International Indonesia, Gunung Gede Pangrango NationaL Park, and the University of Indonesia and Silvery Gibbon Project (SGP).

The bird species found consisted of 51 species, in 30 families. The most common families found were the Decaidae and Silviidae families, with the average discovery on the Canopy Trail and Rasamala. Protected birds found include Malaysian pied fantail, Greater green leafbird, Blue-winged leafbird, Crimson sunbird, Javan banded pitta, and Mountain swiftlet. There were 18 types of herpetofauna, consisting of 8 types of amphibians and 10 types of reptiles.

There is also a big waterfall that offers a nice wash-up after the tiring walk on this day. Have about 2 hours trip under the thickness of the jungle in the afternoon today. Head back to Jakarta.
