There are many mountains in West Java, but some of you may be curious about where the highest plains are. Perhaps it’s because it’s of so many kinds, so it’s not properly understood. Needless to worry, here are some names from the highest mountain ranges in the West Java region.
Mount Siremai in West Java is the tallest.
The first highest mountain is Siremai. So Siremayi is in Kuningan, Sirebon and Majalenka. Siremai’s elevation is one of the most active volcanoes that can reach an altitude of 3,078 meters above sea level. The peak is on the lip of the crater, where it is very gentle and wide.
Mountaineers can use four official hiking routes. Everyone certainly has their own difficulties and facilities. There are many beauties that Sirema has to offer. From the scenery to the still beautiful conditions.
Well, as far as mountaineers are concerned, you need to understand, which isthe most difficult and the easiest track to use. Then don’t let there be a ri siko, because you don’t know the terrain used properly. So, the most famous road in Siremai is the Bappa Tere Climb, which is one of the most unique mountaineers on the island of Java.
Siremai is ranked number one as the highest mountain in West Java. As one of the tallest mountains, it turns out that you can see edelweiss flowers when you are at the top of Siremai. Of course this makes Siremai even more beautiful.
In addition to Edelweiss, there are also several historical places for Indonesia at the foot of the mountain. Even during the time of Belcolonization, the Lingarjati negotiation building proved to be at the foothills of Siremai, adding to the attraction of visitors curious about the beauty of Siremai in West Java.
Pangrango is the second highest mountain in West Java
The next plateau found in West Java is Pangrango. Therefore, Pangranggo is located at an altitude of about 3,019 meters above sea level and you can find it through bogor, sukabumi and sianjur routes.
It turns out that Pangrango has been included in the Gade Pangrango National Park area and that it is really protected. There is the Mandalavangi Valley, which has always been the target of tourists. In this valley you will see a beautiful expanse of Edelweiss.
Being a tourist spot officially declared in 1980, Pangrango is often visited by tourists, especially mountaineers. Although many love to climb the mountain, the first person to set foot on the top of Pangrango was not an Indonesian, but a German, CGC. He was the founder of the Bogor Botanical Garden in 1819.
In 1977, UNESCO successfully declared Pangrango as a biofire reserve, making its name more widely known to tourists. Many mountaineers want to see the beauty of the Mandavalangi Valley and the spread of Edelweiss on this plateau. Ternya Ta Pangrango has caught the attention of many visitors, including being part of the highest mountain in West Java and occupies the second place.
Many people outside Java think that Pangrango and Ged are a part, even if this is not true, because they are diametrically opposite to each other. Pangrango is much higher compared to Mount Ged. But it is often considered a single name because the place is so close.
Gunung Gede has Surya Kenkana Square
Well, as mentioned earlier, there’s Mount Gidd. So this plateau is still located in the Gede- Pangrango National Park area. Situated at an altitude of about 2,958 meters above sea level, the mountain is situated opposite Pangrangho.
There are many interesting things in the Ged Plateau where there are still many craters active. The craters are Vadon Crater, Lanang Crater, Ratu Crater and New Crater. Well, there is an interesting place that has always caught the attention of visitors when it comes to Mount Ged, i.e. Surya Kenkana Square.
Don’t imagine Surya Kenkana Square to be the same as it is in some big cities or districts. In this square , you’ll be even more surprised at the sight of the Edelweiss tree, which has plenty of them. However, mountaineers are advised not to simply pick up, Edelweiss yes, because that too is protected.
In addition to the numerous Edelweiss beds in the mountains of West Java, it turns out that The Surya Kenkana Square is often used as one of the camp places for climbers so that you can enjoy the expanse of Edelweiss and feel the feel of living in a beautiful place.
Since Gunung Gede is one of the areas of the Pangrango National Park, it has a lot of fauna that is actually preserved. For example, Javan Gibbon, Lutung Surili, Leopard, Biul Slentech, and many more. So the beauty of the mountain in West Java is still well preserved.
Watch the exotic sunrise of Mount Sikure in West Java
In addition, there is Mount Sikure, which is 2,821 meters above sea level. This plateau consists of sites in Sikajang, Byeongbong and Daeu Mangung districts. The shape of this siqueray is completely cone-shaped and inert. When it is at the top, it may be possible to know that the area is flat and not very large. But I’m not worried because I have a wake-up post.
Many mountaineers have also come to Sikure to enjoy the sunrise. Many climbers say that the view of the sunrise at this one place is indeed very beautiful compared to the upper peson of The Papandayan. But the beauty is not right, because the top of the Sikkure is so ugly.
Sikure is the fourth list of the tallest mountain ranges in West Java, but unfortunately, this peak is certainly ugly due to the destruction from the climbers, where they are less responsible. There are several scribbles that you can find when you are at the top of the Sicure Plateau.
If you want to make the ascent, you can go through some safe and official Sildug route. If you are from Bandung, it is very easy to travel using public transport. You can also continue through city transportation to reach the entrance to the ascent.
However, as a mountaineer it is strongly recommended not to do any vandalism or waste. It is better to maintain the beauty of Sikure by enjoying only the scenery.

Even some of them have tourists from outside the province who want to enjoy the beauty of West Java. K Amu can visit a mountain in West Java and try to experience the beauty of its beauty.
