Marvelous Adventure in Pegadung Rock

karang pegadungOne of the more amazing attractions in Tanggamus region in Lampung is Karang Pegadung (Pegadung Rock), besides Laguna Beach, and Kiluan Bay. So many tourists equalize the beauty of Pegadung Rock with the famous Phi Phi Island in Thailand. As a matter of fact, some people said that Pegadung Rock is more beautiful than Phi Phi Island.

The different between them are Pegadung Rock is still hidden and has not been managed well.  The infrastructure has not accommodated well, so a trip to the Pegadung Rock is very dangerous for those who don’t expert in riding a motorcycle and fully challenging. But you can ask local resident to take you there because they are expert rider and they are familiar with it.

This was extremely adventurous. The road full of gravels, pebbles, rocks, sand and even mud. The trip along the 25 km passes through hills, up and down. It is recommended to come in the summer season, because during rainy season it would be very dangerous. Along the way, we were presented with hills, sea, paddy fields and rivers.

I saw tourists just got fish and sea urchin and then they grilled them in the edge of the beach. It seemed so delicious. I just sat among the rocks. I was still stunned withthe sight. I even didn’t have enough words to describe my feeling. God is the best creator.
