Green Canyon information
The number one tour from Pangandaran is to Green Canyon (Cujang Taneuh); it’s clearly signposted at several points along the highway. Many tour operators in Pangandaran run trips here for 150,000Rp and include ‘countryside’ excursions to make a full-day tour. To get there yourself, hire a boat from the Green Canyon river harbour on the highway, 1km before the turn-off to Batu Karas. Boats buzz up the jungle-fringed, emerald-green river to a waterfall and a beautiful canyon where there’s swimming (though the current is often strong here). Boatmen work on a return-trip schedule of just 45 minutes, which only gives you about 15 minutes to swim and explore the narrowest and most beautiful part of the canyon; if you want to stay longer you’ll have to pay extra.
