Tanah Priangan always has its charm for us to visit. Apart from Garut, Sumedang, or Ciamis, there is an area called Tasikmalaya which is no less attractive. Apart from being rich in unique culinary delights – and the most famous is Mie Basonya – Tasikmalaya has destinations that can provide freshness and calm to our souls.

Topographically, Tasikmalaya is filled with hills which local people call mountains. So, don’t be surprised if you are in Tasik; there are many places or roads whose first names are mountains, such as Mount Sabeulah, Mount Horse, Mount Pompok, Mount Putri, and other mountains.

So, Hipwee Travel would like to invite you to get to know a series of tourist destinations in Tasikmalaya that you can use as a reference for your vacation.  Check them out and feel the freshness… 😀

1. Mount Galunggung

The destination that you must visit when spending your holidays in Tasikmalaya is Mount Galunggung. The mountain that once made the world go wild when it last erupted in 1982 has always been a favorite tour for all walks of life. You can find natural hot springs at the foot of the mountain, which are believed to cure many ailments.

For those of you who are curious about the shape of the former Galunggung erupting caldera, you can see it by climbing the 620 steps. The stairs that provide access to the crater rim have a unique story. That said, the number of steps is not always the same if we count. Your answer with your friend’s answer will always be different.

If you want to camp, you can do it on the crater’s edge! Because it faces east, you can also enjoy the moment the sun rises on the crater rim.

3. Dragon Village

To the west, to be precise, Neglasari Village, Salawu District, Tasikmalaya, has a village that adheres to traditional values ​​and ancestral traditions.
