To the Nature between Malang and Surabaya
Tea Plantation, Rain Forest, Rice Fields, and Temple
Departure is at 8:30 am from Tanjung Perak Port in Surabaya. The journey leads more into nature: tea plantations, rice terrace landscapes, temples, and rainforests. The drive goes south about 1.5 hours drive from the city of Surabaya, the second-largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta. The first destination on this trip is to visit the tea plantation. The approximately 700-hectare tea plantation was created in 1910 during the Dutch colonial era. The plantation was passed on from the Dutch to the Indonesian government and passed on to the locals. Walkthrough the tea plantation and visit the tea refinery to see how everything is done. Then break to drink tea to try the original tea. Lunch break in a restaurant on the way towards Trawas to the beautiful rice terraces in East Jawa. You will never get tired of enjoying the rice field landscapes. On the kilometer-long journeys, you will only see the ingenious rice terraces far and wide. The landscapes are also very varied due to rainforests and villages, which you can enjoy while driving. In between, we take a short walk through the breathtaking rice field landscapes. Afterward, we are going to visit the old Hindu temple Jolotundo with its holy water source from the mountain Gunung Penanggungan. The temple with the water source dates from the 8th century and is extremely important for the Balinese Hindu and Javanese Kejawen as a place of prayer. The Balinese Hindus are often on a pilgrimage to the sacred water source. You have time to bathe (no bikini, please) in the disease-healing water. The locals believe that the water from the spring could cure their illness. The temple is located in the middle of the lush rainforest at the foot of Mount Penanggungan. Back to Tanjung Perak harbor where the ship is moored.
