“Boon Pring Andeman”, The Best Ecotourism in Malang

March. Yeah, I know this is the longest month of every year. I don’t know why I am so disappointed with this month. Every time.

As a matter of fact, I wanted to make a short holiday. I've just wanted to get more “me time”. But, I didn’t want to try getting out of my city. Making a joy ride is the best choice to do it. As soon as I decided to bring my motor on the track again, I made sure that I could visit the best place around my home. As for me, I don’t like the theme park to make my short holiday. After I had searched the new spot, I found the beautiful ones, Boon Pring Andeman. It is an ecotourism with the bamboo trees icon.

Not so far from "Tiban" Mosque that I had visited the previous week, Boon Pring Andeman is 50 miles away from downtown of Malang. On my GPS, it is only a few miles away from the amazing mosque. According to the map, I must drive only an hour and some minutes from the mosque. Both of them are located in Turen subdistrict.

On a Sunday morning, I was directing my ride on the way to Sanankerto village. Driving it slowly, It just a few months after I had injured my right arm. So, I had to drive it carefully. Along the road toward the "Tiban" Mosque, there were some buses that were carrying many groups of pilgrims.

Where you want to go?

Not for far from the mosque area, I came to a crossroad. Sign of the way to ecotourism directed me to walk a straight. I followed it and guessed that no more time again to reach it. So, I rode slowly. Unfortunately, it was missed. The road that I went through like no end. Then, its surface was very damaged and slippery. Besides that, my bike had to climb quite sharply. Oh, God, gave me a strength.

I was surprised after I had found the main gate of my destination. It was made of bamboo that arranged in such a way so that it was beautiful. I saw there was a group of mass hysteria by the euphoria. Many of them had already with their war equipments: smartphone, action cam, selfie stick, and so on. Oh dear, I had just carried my little pocket camera.

I had been waiting for a long time to get the parking ticket. It just 3 thousand rupiahs. I had to buy an entrance ticket for a price 8 thousand rupiahs. I came to the entrance gate after I had handed in my ticket on the operator. The operator of Boon Pring are the villagers. They operate it with the support of village government and subdistrict police officer. I passed their office of it just a mile away from the main gate.

Keep clean guys.
Hi buddy, come to papa. Let's take some epic picture!

Oh, it was so amazing. I was surprised after I had entered the main gate. I was interested in the beautiful spot on the edge of the lake. Seeing the visitors riding the manual boat, I sat under the tree and started to take some pictures. I tried to talk with a family that enjoyed their breakfast. “How a complete tourism object it was!” said the mother. It was their first trip and the father decided to bring his family there in every month. Yeah, so did I.

In the middle of the lake, there was an island that surrounding by the bamboos. The operators planted garden plants there. The best area of this island was the narcissist spot on the corner of it. The visitors usually took their best photograph style there. The island is connected by a bridge with the main area.

I wanted to try on exploring the lake with a motorboat. It was cheaper than I did it with a manual boat. Just three thousands rupiahs, I went surrounding the lake with some mother and their children. Oh, it was so interesting.

I looked at the scenery around the lake and recognized it was the best place that I had visited. During the exploration, we ran across the visitors who ride the manual boat. Most of them were in trouble to work it. But, I swore that they were happy. The operator would call them if the time had ended. A half of an hour was enough to make a special moment with the family in the lake.

Let's go!

Hi girls!

Keep your smile!

How about my style?

Besides the lake, there were many best spots for the visitor. Swimming pool, archery arena, flying fox, and more narcissist spots. There was a tighter lake with lots of goldfish. Fish spa therapy was a favorite activity to relax, clean and exfoliate the skin. And, the best activity in this lake was relaxing with duck buoy. The pink ones were my favorite.

Don't leave me alone honey.

I wanna be with you until......

I think that Boon Pring is the best ecotourism in Malang. Not only has complete facilities, but also it has a hundred different types of bamboo. Some of them are Indonesian bamboo like apus, cook, bamboo woven and other best quality of it. Last but not least, the operators are very strict in maintaining of cleanliness. This is how I wanna to go to this best place again.

  2. Well, yeah. Many times, we underestimate the city where we live in. We think that traveling is always the best way to gain new experience or to be relaxed. However, many times, our own city shows to us that they have the best places to get us relaxed and refreshed, especially because our family is with us.
