This is a small beach, popular among Malang students. They have fresh bananas, pineapples and fish. The tiny bay is a paradise. Unfortunately the place is controlled by locals, who would not let you stay there after sunset. ‘For your own safety’ of course!
Perfect place to relax outside of Malang. You would be swimming in the natural lake with friendly fish. The water comes from the nearby stream and the swimming pool is about 4 meters deep at one of the ends. On the other side you can find a piece of a sandy beach. Water is cold, but due to its constant flow, very clean and refreshing.
We walked in a fresh cool mountain air. Throught the fields, pass the streams, into the woods. We bathed in waterfalls, listened to the birds and played with monkeys. We became part of this forest and it welcomed us and gave us a refuge.
,The enormous crater is so close. Covered with yellow mineral, constantly emitting enormous amounts of smoke. It seems to be alive. Now I understand why locals believe in powers of the mountain. It has its own soul and its force cannot be compared to any human force. It is wild and gorgeous.,
