  • A trip through a landscape as you that proposes from the books. Coffee, cacao and rubber plantations, jungle, palm sugar factory and in the evening to the beach where sea turtles lay eggs. (trip is 2 days and 1 night). also turn off the morning of baby turtles. Transport with 4 wheel drive. Along the way, monkeys, hornbills, Kalongs (Flying Fox) and iguana's. Some refrain by the evil way but well worth the effort and not yet discovered by mass tourism. Grandiose. We made him from Rumah Kita in Kalibaru and they took care of the trip beyond our expectation. There were even towels, sheets and SOAP/toilet paper with it and the meals were also included. Recommended for tourists who want to see some of the nature. Rumah Kita "does" also trips to the Kawah Ijen.
