Welcome to Cibodas
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 lodgings serving weekenders from nearby cities. The road from Jakarta and Bogor climbs in elevation, through a sprawling hill resort known as the Puncak to a height of 1490m before descending to Cibodas. Note that at the weekend and during holidays the traffic along this route is almost gridlocked.
Visitors must pay 2000Rp to enter Cibodas village.
