    Kawah Ratu (Queen Crater) and Mount Salak - Bogor



    Mount Salak indeed save a lot of beauty. Mount Salak Bogor is an icon of Bogor city. Mountain with dense forest vegetation has a large number of springs, so do not be surprised if it found a lot of the waterfall (the waterfall) on the slope. There is another unique of Mount Salak. Located at the top of the crater is not like most other mountains, but there in the middle of the mountain. This crater known as Kawah Ratu (Crater Queen) or Ratu Crater.

    Before you get the panorama of Ratu crater, you must be trekking and climbing on Mount Salak. There are two official climbing routes that can be passed is through Cidahu (Sukabumi) and will through Sand reungit (Mount Bunder). Before the climb, park officials announced that the climb to the Ratu crater must be accompanied by experienced guides. After all the roads to the mountain should not be underestimated even though the track is fairly easy. Then, you must be trekking as far as 3.6 km. That distance can be taken about 2 hours more. Not too difficult but a scar, because the road is fairly flat. Moreover Ratu crater at an altitude of only 800-900 m above sea level, not too high.

    Kawah Ratu, which means "Queen's Crater", is today just a big gray hole which sometimes has a pool of water at its center. Poisonous gases sometimes accumulate in Ratu crater, thus making it somewhat of a risk to descend to the crater floor. Beyond the saddled shaped depression on the far side of Kawah Ratu is the still active Kawah Upas, the oldest crater on the mountain. On the western cliff you see a spot where all vegetation has been destroyed by constantly rising sulphurous vapors. On the crater walls, note the various layers of material consisting of rock, sand, and pebbles.
