Trip to Situs Megalitikum Gunung Padang, Cianjur

Yeah!! I'm back...with another place that I visited last weekend, but I didn't go for body rafting, so sad :( it's okay I can go next time ^^ I saw a day trip to go to Situs Megalitikum Gunung Padang, Cianjur on Saturday, 24 August 2013 with cost all in Rp195.000 so I decided to join. Our meeting point at Kampung Rambutan Terminal at 6 AM *yawn*, we left at 7 AM by ELF car. It was pretty far from Jakarta plus again & again bad traffic jam but not like when I went to Bogor last time. Plus the infrastructure of the road are still poor. Passing the same route like I did last time but still going straight to Puncak - Cipanas until Cianjur. We arrived around 11.30 AM and our first destination is Lampegan Station, an old station which operated since 1882 and closed in 2001. There was a tunnel there which built in 1879 - 1882.

From there we went to Situs Megalitikum Gunung Padang, 6 km from Lampengan Station. Hardly can't wait to go there, our main destination & I saw the pictures before andddd...I really wanna see with my eyes, coz that was so damn cool~! Situs Megalitikum Gunung Padang is a prehistoric heritage site in the Megalithic culture of West Java, located at Karyamukti village, Cianjur. It is a largest Punden Complex in Asia with complex of building area about 900sqm, located at an altitude of 885 m above sea level, and the site area ​​about 3 hectares. Entrance Fee is Rp2.000 for local & Rp5.000 for foreign people. There were 14 ppl who joined this trip, When we took the car to go there, they said the car can't enter until main entrance so we parked the car and go until entrance by foot. To go to the megalithic site there were 2 options for the stairs, left is original stairs but kinda steep & right is ladder stairs, we decided to go with steep one, original stairs & sooo exhausted...kkk xDD On this megalitikum site there were a mystery with number 5 coz so many things related with number 5. I got this information when the guide told us the story about this site. This site surrounded by 5 mountain, there are 5 terrace on this site, shape of the stone is pentagon etc. This site is used as a place for worship and some of archaeologist are still doing research about this place until now. The age range from 3500 - 8000 BC and even in Terrace 5 there are some stone age range between 13.000 - 23.000 BC. Wow...he said this was moreeeee ancient than Pyramid on Mesir. There were 5 unique stones on those terraces. Terrace 1 with Gamelan (traditional music instrument), Terrace 2 with Throne, Terrace 3 with sketch resembling  with stone cleaver (ukiran kujang) & tiger's footprint (tapak maung), Terrace 4 with 'Carrying Stone' (Batu Gendong) who able to lift that stone, their wish will be granted..but when we went there, that stone wasn't there coz they keep the stone and the last one is Terrace 5 with Rest Stone the shape looks like a bed..hehe...

Actually we wanna go to another place called Curug Cikondang (waterfall) but we couldn't go coz we didn't have enough time that we went to Puncak instead to have meals before going back to Jakarta. We arrived in Jakarta around 11 PM. Such an exciting day trip for my lovely weekend :) Well, see you next time & thank you for reading my blog~!! ^^
