I don’t know about you, but I always long for mountain view or any greeneries. Unfortunately, Jakarta doesn’t have good option for this (in my opinion). Maybe that’s why every weekends and long weekends, places like Puncak, Bogor, or Bandung, are always crowded with travelers from Jakarta.
Bogor is one city that I rarely visit to be honest. But from here and there, many people told me Bogor has many sights worth seeing, not to mention various places for a culinary trip. After a short research, I found this unique camp in Bogor. It is located on the slope of Gunung Salak, so you can expect beautiful sceneries of the mountain here. The name is Highland Park Resort Bogor.
It took me one and a half hour journey to get to this place. Because I live in BSD City, Serpong, I took the Parung route instead the Jagorawi highway, because traffic in Jagorawi could be crazy in the morning. I departed at 7.00 in the morning and arrive there around 8.30 AM.
The Highland Park Bogor is a resort that offers unique experience of camping. They have this themed glamour-camping named Mongolian camp and Indian (Apache) camp. Beside the unique camps, they also offer outbound activities, equastrian club, edu club, golf, mini zoo, fishing, etc. That is why the place is often crowded with kids or even adults for school trip, family gathering, or corporate outing.
The room rates for the camp are varied depends on the tent and also the season (low, mid, or peak season). To give you a little clue, for the smallest camp here (for up to 4 persons) costs around Rp 1.800.000,-.
If you do not want to stay the night but still want to experience the relaxing mountain view here, you can visit the restaurant. In the morning they serve breakfast buffet until 10 AM, it costs Rp 85.000,-. After 10 AM, you can order a la carte from their menu.
One thing I’d like to mention about this resort is their great service! The staffs are really kind and attentive, which I didn’t expect at all. I can see that they are maintaining the resort very well, and the hotel and security staffs are everywhere to help cater to your needs without making you feel intimidated or anything (if you get what I mean).
So, are you ready to experience to live as an Apache here? 🙂
