10 Amazing Tourist Attractions in Banjar to Visit with Whole Family

by Yoga Adi

Have you ever heard about a city named Banjar? It’s located in West Java province that is most notably known for the campsites in West Java. The city itself isn’t as big as Bandung, but it’s vital since it’s actually a gateway of West Java’s southern passage.

Most trucks and vehicles would pass the city for businesses, making it one of the crowdest cities around West Java. But, despite its condition that’s full of people, Banjar still has an outstanding beauty of natural attractions that can be found easily. Without further ado, here’s some examples of things to do in Banjar West Java :

1. Lake Leutik

Lake Leutik
  • Location: Cibeureum village
  • Entrance Fee: Free

Even though you won’t find beaches in West Java around Banjar, you can still meet the other beautiful attractions like Lake Leutik. It is a small lake that has existed for decades, but its existence was only developed later in 2006. The plan was to support the tourism aspects in this area like a souvenir kiosk, outbound facilities, canteens, rowing boats and water bikes.

Because the road conditions are quite good to be traversed, this area is also one of the favorite places for jogging or just sitting and relaxing while enjoying the view.

2. Lake Mandalare

Lake Mandalare
  • Location: Mandalare village, Pataruman
  • Entrance Fee: Free

The lake is actually quite popular on social media, but strangely no one has given a clear name for this cool place. The good news is that this pool already has a nickname, namely Mandalare.

Its name comes from a village in Pataruman Subdistrict, Banjar Patroman Regency, West Java where this lake is located. This village itself is actually pretty green,  dominated by hills, plantations and rocky areas.

3. Citanduy River

Citanduy River
  • Location: West Java
  • Entrance Fee: Free

A very long river that goes across the wide province. With a length of 178.40 km (111 miles) this river divides the three regencies located in the same province, namely Ciamis, Tasikmalaya and Cilacap.

Even though it is not a commercial tourist destination, there are also many young people hanging out on the edge of this river because it has good views. At some points on the banks of this river, the locals also built beautiful gardens to make the scene better.

4. Cibonte Waterfall

Cibonte Waterfall
  • Location: Cijambu village, Cibeureum

The next attraction is another call location called Cibonte waterfall. Located inside the area of a far-from-crowds village, Cibonte has become one of the best waterfalls in West Java worth visiting.

5. Panganten Waterfall

Panganten Waterfall
  • Location: Sukamukti village, Pataruman

7. Cadas Gantung Natural Pool
