Mountain hides behind the dark clouds.

Last month, I and my family went to Bungbulang district to attend my cousin's wedding ceremony. It's three hours land journey from the center of Garut Regency, the city where I live. Misty and foggy panorama were along our way.

Bungbulang is well known for its delicious palm sugar, rice cracker (opak) and gemstones. Some people say that  the sugar has curative benefit for gastric disorder. The district is also one of districts in Garut vulnerable to landslide. We found damaged roads and newly reconstructed road which was split because of a landslide. My suggestion: drive slowly, do not rush. You may encounter a situation where a big truck comes from an opposite direction in a narrow curvy ascending road. A reliable driving skill is definitely needed.

Although most of the road to Bungbulang are need to be reconstructed for its damage, the scene are definitely breathtaking, a combination of green vegetation, big rocks and mist. We decided to reach Bungbulang before nightfall so I did not ask the driver to stop for me so I can take some pictures. I took these picture from a running minibus. Enjoy...
