In Sundanese language, ‘Buniayu’ means hidden beauty. What’s so special about this cave is, there are only a few caves in Indonesia that have vertical entrance and Buniayu Cave is one of those. It is located at Kerta Angsana, Sukabumi – about 4-5 hours drive from Jakarta. All cavers shall expect to have interesting experiences in this cave. Let’s go underground! ;)
Buniayu Cave consists of Goa Kerek, Goa Wisata and Goa Landak. The first two caves are Horizontal cave while the last one is a vertical cave.
We will get ourselves challenged in this vertical cave. We will climb, hike and swim! And also feel your adrenaline rush in Curug Bibijilan (Bibijilan Waterfall) where we will descend to the water bank by only hanging on a rope. After that, we also will explore 2500 m underground rivers where we will find a few unique animals such as ancient shrimp. Other sensation that this cave offers will be long lasting total darkness. We will never know when it is day or night.
