Welcome to Cibodas
You’ll find an outstanding collection of ferns and palms, 65 species of eucalyptus, Mexican mountain pines and glasshouses bursting with cacti and succulents. A road loops around the gardens, passing via the Japanese garden with its cherry trees, and there are also paths leading through forests of bamboo to the impressive Cismun waterfall.
Visitors must pay 2000Rp to enter Cibodas village.
Back on the main highway, you'll find that Cibodas, like most of West Java, is swelling beyond its original skin. Once a relatively prosperous yet simple tea and market town, with nice homes dotting the green hills, now there are gleaming malls, fashion outlets and upmarket lodging serving weekenders from Bogor and Jakarta.
