Did you know that explosion of Krakatoa (or Krakatau) volcano once changed the climate around the globe? The atmospheric effects made incredible yet unexpected sunsets all over Europe and the United States. This Krakatoa tour will take you to what’s remaining of the volcano centuries after the unfortunate explosion. And just nearby is Ujung Kulon National Park, home to diverse wildlife, but most importantly the endangered one-horned Javan rhinoceros. It is the largest animals on Java Island and the second largest in Indonesia after the Asian Elephant. There are several islands in this archipelago but during this Krakatoa tour you will mostly spend the time exploring the forest and underwater life around Peucang and Handeleum Islands.

Itinerary: Krakatoa Tour

DAY 1: JAKARTA - CARITA BEACH - KRAKATOA - PEUCANG ISLAND    ▼

Rise early and shine! We will pick you up from your hotel in Jakarta at 5 AM, then drive to the West coast of Carita beach approximately 3 hours to being our Krakatoa tour. On arrival, have breakfast then we will boat the fast boat heading to Sunda strait.

When the Earth once exploded…

We will be heading to the deserted, active volcano island of Krakatoa (also known as Krakatau). It is 35 miles away to witness the remaining of the biggest explosion ever recorded in history of mankind. After about 1,5 hours on the boat, keep your eyes open and you may see a Frigate Bird soaring high overhead, licking its scissor-like tail as it changes direction with hardly a flap of its wings. You will almost certainly spot flying fish making their long low glides above the sea’s surface. Some of them “fly” for tens of metres, and are airborne for several second, dolphins often come to greet the boat and play alongside it or in front of the prow.

Landing at the beach of Anak Krakatau which is a smaller volcano near Krakatoa and climb up to the first top of volcano. Step your foot on it, searching closely the minerals (volcanic bomb, lava) which were thrown up through its crater from the bottom of the earth. From the top, you can see the wonderful beautiful sea view of Krakatoa archipelago. Pristine seas, green vegetation, and apocalyptic porous red-volcanic rocks dropping all the way from the crater deep into the sea.

Moving on the Ujung Kulon…

Back to the boat for rest/lunch and then continue for cruise to Peucang Island on the Ujung Kulon National Park approx. 2,5 hours. Peucang is truly a secluded paradise located at the most western edge of Java. Surrounded by soft white sandy beach, clear blue waters, and enchanting coral reefs, Peucang promises serenity for whoever steps on its sands. Peucang is home to a variety of species of wild animals such as monkeys, hornbills, monitor lizards, wild boars, toucans, sea hawks, and more. The most notable of these is the barking deer that are found abundantly around the island. Arrival at the lodge at sunset. Dinner will be served in the same lodge, the rest of the evening is free.

Accommodation: Lodge in Peucang Island

DAY 2:EXPLORING PEUCANG ISLAND       ▼

After breakfast, we are ready to explore Peucang Island. You will trek to the Karang Copong (North of Peucang island) passes through primary forest. Also, you can see kind of huge trees like Ficus or Liana trees. Sometimes we could see common wild animals such as wild pig, peacock, hornbill and others. After an hour trekking, we’ll take a rest at Karang Copong. We go back to the lodge to have lunch, then continue to Citerjun coral reef for snorkeling to see variety of tropical colorful fish.

Day 3:PEUCANG ISLAND - HANDELEUM ISLAND - JAKARTA - END OF TRIP       ▼

After breakfast, we continue (cruising) to Handeleum Island, situated among a group of small islands just off the north eastern coast of the Ujung Kulon peninsula. Exploring the Cigenter river (by canoe), Ujung Kulon National Park is an unbelievably fantastic experience. It’s remarkably peaceful and lovely here, yet full of primeval – rainforest and trees that have fallen into the river. The rich colors of the place are so wonderful, and the strong tropical sun creates great pools of mottled light on the river’s surface.

We will be going back to Carita beach, but on the way we will stop to Badul Island Just offshore here is a tiny, sandy island surrounded by nice reef. Corals grow around with the variety of both hard and soft. Visibility during our snorkeling can be up to 8 meters. There are schools of bannerfish, angelfish, surgeonfish, clownfish, batfish, butterfly fish and fusiliers inhabit the reef, and some bright nudibranchs. Late afternoon, back to Carita beach then transfer back to your hotel Jakarta.
