A happy little family spend their weekend to the pines! Get a literally refreshing air on weekend away from the city. They were frolic around, and enjoy the cool breeze between the pines. It was really a good choice recreation for family. It’s called Gunung Pancar at Sentul. A natural tourism park whose managed by government. Just took around 40 minutes driving from Jakarta to get here (30min-1 hr, starts from Tol Jagorawi).
Not only for family, this place also become favorite for taking pictures like prewedding or school year end book. There should be take any charge for commercial shoot like that. I knew it because I have a story.
One day, I took my friend’s prewedding photo shoot. We just acted like an ordinary photo shoot for private collection. However the security suspect on us by looking my friend’s full make up complete with the fake eyelashes, haha. Then a security followed us to our location, and started to asked about what kind of photo shoot is this.
Funnily, we answered some different states at the same time.
“For profile picture on facebook”,
” For instagram”,
“We are just playing make up and want to take photo for private collection, its hobby”
Hahaha fortunately the security believed us. And we safe from spending much money. Because I’ve heard somewhere that it will cost more than Rp 500.000, depends how good you are at negotiating.
Gunung Pancar also a favorite place for cycling. There are also a hot spring placed in Gunung Pancar area. You can get a relaxing bath among the pines, hmm seems refreshing. I should try it someday.

-Hot spring (inside Gunung Pancar area): Rp 10.000/Adult and donation (more like service fee) Rp 5.000/person. Those are just for entering the hot spring area. The hot spring itself cost Rp 50.000/person/30min or family package (private pool) Rp 150.000/hr.
How to get there:
-By driving (about 40min from entering tol Jagorawi):
enter Tol Jagorawi-exit at Sentul City 37km-follow the jungle land signage-right before the housing jungle land complex gate, turn right into local street (rocky road, pretty bad condition) and just follow the way. After about 1 km you’ll see the Gunung Pancar gate.
-By bus (must be longer than using your private car):
Take APTB (a blue bus, you can get it from busway station) to Bogor until Cibubur rest area. Change APTB bus line into APTB to Sentul City or Bulalak. If you get Sentul City line, you can go until the last stop, get down and get ojek (motorcycle taxi) that will spend about Rp 15.000-Rp 20.000. If you get Bulalak line, stop at Bellanova Mall, continue with ojek that will spend Rp 30.000. (Don’t forget to bargain as cheap as you can!)
