Are you planning to visit Puncak? I wont suggest you, to take a day Trip to Puncak on the weekend.
Why? Traffic jam extremely dreadful along the way.
Visit Puncak on the Weekend is Bad Idea
Second week of November, we plan a quick gateway, to Puncak.
No plan to stay at hotel. We just want to visit Puncak, watch sunrise. And will go home right after dawn.
Friday night, we climb up. In about two hour, we reach destination.
At 2 am in the morning, you’ll experience best trip while visit Puncak 😀
Once we arrived at Puncak Pass, kiddos playing around, embracing cold breeze.
I played guitar, and hubby was busy with his phone.
At 7am we plan to go back to Jakarta. On our way home. Police officers block all traffic from Bandung. Stucked with other car, can’t go forward.
Do Tue many people love to visit Puncak on the weekend, it caused traffic jam. Hence police scheduled To Blocked Traffic (Open/Close) every two hour.
We parked by the roadside. And talked with the locals. As information from them, schedule open/Close is changing. It took 4 hour, now.
Tired, sleepy, hungry, pissed off, we change schedule and search for a hotel to rest.
Visit Puncak for a day trip change to spending night at Hotel.
At 1pm we arrive at the hotel. Even though it only 6KM, from the point we parked to the hotel.
What a waste of time!!
Kiddos still have plenty of energy and asking to swim. Hubby accompanied them. I choose to sleep.
