49 Batur Lake



Batur Lake is the old crater of Mount Batur, a still active volcano next to it. It is located on the northern part of Bali. The largest lake overshadowed by the active volcano is located in Bangli Regency, at the northeast of Bali. Batur Lake is the widest lake in this island.



It lies down in the feet of Mount Batur and Mount Abang. The lake is classified as a "neutral-dilute" lake because there is no known underlying hydrothermal activity, and the abundant rainfall more than quenches any such activity. There is a hot spring right by the lake. We can enjoy the spectacular scenery of Batur Lake from Kintamani.



Across the lake, only reachable by boat, lies Trunyan village, where the Bali Aga people live. The surrounding of the lake is a favorite place for picks self up. At Batur Lake we can see the scenic view and feel cool atmosphere. Bangli's mountainous region center is around the spectacular volcanic crater (or caldera) of Batur.



Mount Batur adjacent to the volcano is the large crescent-shaped Batur Lake, all surrounded by the high walls of the crater rim. The place is a great day trips, trekking or just to get away from the daily activity.

52 Lake Matano



Lake Matano (Indonesian Danau Matano), also known as Matana, is a natural lake in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is the deepest lake in Indonesia and South East Asia (ranked by maximum depth), and the 8th deepest lake in the world.



Lake Matano is home to many species of endemic fish and other animals as well as many plants. The endemic fishes of Matano have been compared to that of the species swarms of the Rift Valley Lakes of Africa. While not as diverse, they are thought to have all arisen from a single ancestor species and diversified into numerous different species, which now fill many of the previously vacant ecological niches.



Despite Lake Matano's remote location, it is the site of Pt. INCO, one of the largest nickel mines in the world, which carries out strip mining in the surrounding rainforest. The company cuts down trees and strips the topsoil to be baked in kilns to extract the nickel. Not only has this led to massive damage to the unique rainforest of the area but it has also had serious detrimental effects on the lake, with far higher sediment loads in the rivers feeding into Lake Matano, often with toxic levels of mining waste.



The waters of Lake Matano are exceptionally clear, visibility is good, and many of the fish species are highly dependent on visual cues and colour perception for their mating behaviour. If the sediment washing into the lake continues to increase, the likelihood is that many of these endemic species will be lost.

54 Mamberamo River



The Mamberamo River is the Amazon of Papua. Weaving its way through vast territories of virtually unexplored terrain. Within it's watery reaches there live tribes, who to this day remain almost completely un-contacted by the outside world.



Initially traveling by boat up through the rivers in Waropen, then trekking over the Van Rees Mountains and finally reaching the upper Tariku (eastern Mamberamo) River.



The river trip down the Mamberamo is undertaken
by motorized canoe. Small tributary rivers lead into the tribal villages where you will encounter some of the most isolated people on the planet.



With trips to Papua, especially when exploring areas like the Mamberamo you learn to expect the unexpected. Like raw nature it is a dynamic place of constant change.So, it is essential for those to be open minded and flexible about the itinerary

This white sand beach is located approximately 37 km south of the city of Jember, or less than 235 km from the city of Surabaya. The beach area covers around 25 hectares of natural beauty. A carpet of white sand circling around a 1.5 km peninsula, and also some line of green hills with lush trees that encircle the beach.



The coral rocks around the beach also enhance the beauty of the Papuma beach. Photographers usually visit the beach trying to capture its beauty, so if you decided to visit the Papuma beach don’t be surprised if you found a lot of people with SLR cameras with wide lenses trying to capture the Papuma beach’s landscape.



Papuma beach is also the docking place of the local fisherman, so there are many fishing boats around this area and you might find some of those boats very interesting.



With the blue sea as far as the eye can see, white sand and high waves are the typical characteristic of the southern Java beach it is perfectly NOT save to swim in this area.
