Enjoying the Blue Crater View from the Top of Bukit Kaba Bengkulu



Talking about Bengkulu, it's not only about clean and beautiful beaches. The city also saves the natural beauty of Bukit Kaba which is so stunning. A plethora of enchanting landscapes await tourists to explore. This destination is actually a volcanic area that is still active, even so its beauty is worth checking out.

Kaba Hill is included in the Nature Tourism Park and Rafflesia Arnoldi Flower Conservation area. On the hill, you can see a panoramic view of the live and dead craters that are no less impressive. In fact, on this hill you can enjoy the beauty of the sunrise or sunset.

Mount Kaba is an active volcano[1] located in Rejang Lebong Regency, Bengkulu Province, Indonesia. From Curup City, this mountain is located in the southeast with a distance of about 15 km.

Initially, the location around Mount Kaba was a nature reserve for the protection of Rafflesia flowers. However, now the condition of this tourist area is starting to become unreliable as it was originally intended, namely to protect a park for some Sumatran flora, with the status of the area becoming a natural tourism park.

This mountain with an altitude of 1,938 meters above sea level presents an exotic view. The peak of this mountain is decorated with two craters, each of which is green and brownish white. There are two paths that can be taken to reach the top. The first path offers views of dense forest full of shrubs with ravines on either side, while the other path has been paved with asphalt. The travel time from the climbing post to the summit is a 2-3 hour journey.

The terrain itself is not too steep, more like climbing a hill than a mountain. Along the way, you will find people's plantations, lush trees, and small streams. If you're lucky, you may even find gibbons that live freely there.

Usually during holidays, many climbers camp at the top to watch the star-studded sky on a clear night. Therefore, try to come on weekdays so you don't have to fight over land with other climbers. Especially during this pandemic, tents must be set apart.

The management of Bukit Kaba will also supervise every visitor to keep implementing health protocols, including always wearing a mask and bringing their own hand sanitizer. Body temperature will also be checked before entering the climbing area.

Regarding the entrance ticket to the Bukit Kaba Nature Park, Fajar said visitors who come from Monday to Friday must pay an entrance ticket of Rp. 5,000, BUMDes services of Rp. 6,500, accident insurance of Rp. 1,000. Tourists who come in groups of more than 10 people are charged an entrance ticket of Rp. 2,500 per person, BUMDes services of Rp. 6,500 per person, and accident insurance of Rp. 1,000 per person.

On National holidays and weekends, Bukit Kaba Nature Park tickets are priced at IDR 7,500 per person. Meanwhile, groups that come on holidays are charged Rp. 3,750 per person, BUMDes services are Rp. 6,500 and accident insurance is Rp. 1,000 for each person.

Different again with ticket rates for foreign tourists. From Monday to Friday, foreign tourists who come to Bukit Kaba Nature Tourism Park must pay Rp. 100,000 per person, BUMDes services of Rp. 6,500, and accident insurance of Rp. 5,000 per person. Meanwhile, on holidays, foreign tourists pay a ticket of IDR 225 thousand per person, IDR 6,500 for BUMDes services, and IDR 5,000 for accident insurance.
