Located in the capital city of Indonesia, Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk is a lush nature park that has received the status of a conservation forest area. In order to conserve the mangrove forests in an otherwise urban area dotted with tall buildings that seem to touch the sky and roads that are always busy with moving vehicles, Jakarta has taken the initiative to make this wonderful expanse of greenery into a hotspot for ecotourism.
Formerly, the Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk was heavily exploited by illegal fishers before being restored in 1998. Sprawled across an area of about a hundred hectares, this park is a slice of green paradise. In addition to the conservation efforts taken by the administration, Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk also gives opportunities to the tourists to help out in this initiative by taking part in activities like planting seeds.
Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk is managed by the government of DKI Jakarta and offers a number of enthralling activities for the people who come to this place. Of the several facilities that are housed in this wonderful tourist spot, a few have been listed below.
Grab a bite at the Lesehan Canteen
A few meters away from the entrance of the lush Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk is located the only restaurant within the premises, named Kantin Lesehan. The fascinating decoration of the canteen, with colourful umbrellas hanging from the trees that surround the food joint adds to its picturesque ensemble. Even though they do not serve heavy meals, one can purchase light snacks and beverages from this canteen.
Camp beneath the starry skies
Camping is one of the most popular activities that tourists engage in while visiting Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk. People may bring their own tents, or rent tents that are available from the authorities. In addition to this, the Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk also houses quaint cottage villas that have the occupant capacity of twenty people. The camping ground is also home to a delightful arena specially designed for campfires.
Engage in bird-watching
Surrounded by tall trees on all sides, the beauteous Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk has a particular bridge dedicated to bird-watching. Flung to the far end of the forest, the bird watcher’s bridge offers sightings of exotic birds as well as the captivating view of the soaring buildings in the Pantai Indah Kapuk region. Apart from the aforesaid bridge, the Taman Wisata Alam Angke Kapuk also houses a suspension bridge which is located at one end of the paved road within the premises of the park.
