One-Stop Adventure Arus Liar

First of all, thanks to my dear friend Lody Korua and his spouse Yuni, who created this great-superb-cool adventure called 'arung jeram' (rafting) on Citarik, Sukabumi, 144 km from Bandung, west Java and 120 km from Jakarta. The name of their company is 'Arus Liar' (means Wild Streams). Added with paintball games and off-road adventure (this one becomes favorite event among the jeepers in my country) with Yuma Wiranatakusumah as a host, Arus Liar lately becomes 'one-stop adventure'.
Beside rafting, off-road and paintball games, we can also try to do trekking on Mount Halimun.
All of these activities will start and finish at Pendopo Arus Liar (the main hall), then for stay over-night we can try Nusa Traditional Cottage at Citarik's delta. Surrounded by 2 rivers and greenery area, without electricity and mobilephone's signals :) You can feel trully live at the village here!

We won the Eco Challenge here!!!!

Then last but not least, Sukabumi --especially Lido area-- also becomes my fave place because on June 14, 2003 me and my fellow journalist Kodrat Arif Kuncoro 'Kodjang' won an event by Honda Prospect Motor, called "The Eco Challenge". Using All New Honda City 1.500 cc. This page also dedicated to commemorate our success at Lido Lake. Thanks, Buddy. It's becomes a great birthday gift for me :)

    Yes, Pelabuhan Ratu is great place for wekend. The local people myth about Nyi Roro Kidul can attract tourism to come there

    Sukabumi looks like a nice place to get away from it all to spend a relaxing vacation. The Nusa cottages look especially inviting.
