Situ Patengan

West Java

Situ Patengan is a pretty lake buried into the folds of mountains carpeted in tea estates and remnant patches of forest. It's a popular stop with local tourists and has tearooms and boat trips catering to the Sunday crowds. For the best view of the lake, head out onto the deck of the ridiculously tacky beached boat. It's 18km southwest of Ciwidey and best reached by private transport.
