The June school holiday is almost over, and I’m back and ready to blog again. So before we are having the post school holiday blues which will happen in just a few days, I will try as hard as I can to overcome my laziness and (hopefully) post our complete holiday stories.
As usual, Lembang is always our family first choice for a short getaway. I was confused of where to go in Lembang, and I was very glad when I found out about this place. Our family loves outdoor activities, and so Jendela Alam would be a great place for us to spend the day.
Located in Komplek Graha Puspa, Jalan Sersan Bajuri km. 4.5, this place is quite easy to reach. Once you see Terminal Ledeng, turn left to Jalan Sersan Bajuri. Just go straight until you see Komplek Graha Puspa (about 5 minutes from Kampung Gajah). This place opens from 8 am to 16.30 pm on weekends. For more information, you can visit http://www.jendela-alam.com.
Basically, this is a place for you who love going back to nature after hectic days in the city. This place is just not suitable for children, but also for adults. My mother and sister especially loved to see the fruits and vegetable plants and how they grew so well in this place (for your information, my mom likes gardening and my sister loves to see flowers and plants so they really liked this place).
My son also really enjoyed being in this place because he’s an outdoor person and he loved to see the many kind of animals…….and the experience of feeding the animals with vegetables that he harvested himself was truly priceless.
After you pay, you can enter and see everything for free. Playing in the playground is also free, but if you want to feed the animals……………you must buy another ticket and it will cost you Rp 20.000,-
I think it’s a fair price considering you will get 1 tour guide during the feeding session.
Some of you might find the smell of the animals can be too strong or disturbing, but thankfully we were all OK with it and we had no complaints at all. It was fresh air, no pollution, and there would be no side effect for our health.
Too bad I found an idiot smoke in the middle of the children playground. His children was playing somewhere else, and he just sat down in one of the swing and smoked, and the smell and the smoke was everywhere around the playground. Of course(without thinking twice), I scolded him and gave him the look that said: “You’re the most disgusting person that I’ve ever seen.” Seriously, I have no respect at all for people who smoke near the children, especially someone else’s children. If you want to kill yourself with the cigarettes, do it alone! Don’t do it near my child!!! This place should give a serious warning so people will not smoke inside. This idiot wasn’t the only idiot that I saw smoking in this beautiful place, but since the other idiots didn’t smoke near my child, I didn’t get too angry with them. And no, I don’t consider them as people, so I keep calling them idiots, because they too have children near them and they still smoked near their children and other people’s children. You can’t do that unless you’re super idiot. The good thing was, the idiot that sat on the swing turned off his cigarette after I scolded him.
OK, enough talking about that. Let’s continue this post with our adventure in Jendela Alam.
So, this is basically what we got when we chose the animals feeding session with a guide for Rp 20.000,-
And that was the end of our guided tour. The tour guide was very nice too. After that, we just explored the whole area by ourselves.
Not just animals and plants, there are also another activities for children, including a free playground. Please note that the playground in the only free thing in here, for other activities……………you have to pay
No need to pay extra money to see these animals too:
The highlight of the day was absolutely this 8 Meters from the ground flying fox. The boy said it was so much fun that he insisted to go for the second round. Of course I didn’t dare to try this.
We were all tired, and decided to end the day. Luckily the journey from Jakarta wasn’t too bad and I brought my GPS which absolutely helped a lot.
There is also a restaurant inside Jendela Alam but we didn’t try to eat here.
The minus point from this place is the toilets which were very dirty. I think really should improve the cleanliness of the toilets.
