Falls of the Tjibeureum. The road passes through Tjibodas and for about an hour through a hilly country with a thick growth of luxuriant trees. Then one comes to an open hollow place full of rocks. The falls descend from the rocks opposite this hollow and consist of three streams, The largest one is in the centre. It is has a drop of 450a and is commonly called the falls of Tjibeureum. The left one called Tjibodas (White Water) is also fairly large but the one to the right, called Tjikoendoel is much smaller and is partly hidden. In the vicinity of this cataract is a small grotto in which many bats house.
Mount Gedeh (9689 feet) and Mount Pange-rango (9905) are twin mountains. To do the trip to the former in one day is rather strenuous and therefor the visitor is advised to leave Sindanglaya in the afternoon and stay overnight at Kandang Badak, (Badak means ,,Rhinocerosa and Kandang akraala) situated at an altitude ot about 7874 feet where a mountain hut is found. An early start must be made next morning so as not to miss the beautiful spectacle of sunrise.
From Sindanglaya to Tjibeureum one may gc on horseback or by sedan chair, but from Tji-
beureum one must walk. On the way to Kandang Badak at an elevation of 6562 feet a hot spring is met with. The water is very hot and as the surrounding air is much cooler, the fumes rising from it, are clearly shown.
Near Kandang Badak the road branches in two, the right one leading to Pangerango and the left one to Mounth Gedeh. One must take the left one to reach the small mountain hut of Kandang Badak. It is a small place with only accomodation for three and is built of logs and roofed with atap (made from Alang-Alang).
The key to this resthouse may be obtained from the surveyor of the Mountain Garden of Tjibodas. For this FI 1.a is due, Blankets and provisions must be carried from hotel at Sindanglaya.
The following morning after about two hours walk one reaches the crater of the Gedeh. This vulcano was quiescent from 1761 to 1832 but during the following twenty years, from 1832 to 1852 it had seven eruptions, the one of 1840 being the most violent one.
The last eruption occurred in 1899 when rocks weighing over 300 lbs were hurled a distance of half a mile.
