Santirah River Tubing Inaugurated on October 25, 2012 Pangandaran has become a new autonomous region as a result of the division of Ciamis Regency, with the expansion, the new Regency of Pangandaran is preparing itself as a district that promotes tourism, since then many new tourist attractions have been opened including Madasari Beach, Margacinta Body Rafting, Lanang Cave, Goa Sutra Reregan, Wonder Hill Jojogan, Green Santirah and others.
Santirah or better known as Green Santirah is a new tourist attraction in Pangandaran, but even though it is new it does not mean that santirah are empty of visitors. Since it was popularized in March 2014 the Santirah River has been visited by many domestic and foreign tourists. Santirah River which is located in Selasari Tourism Village, Parigi District, Pangandaran Regency is a Tourism Object opened by Pemuda Karang Taruna and residents around Selasari Tourism Village. If tourists are less brave with the swift flow of the Green Canyon river, the Santirah Body Rafting Package can be the solution. In addition to being safer in terms of river flow, the scenery presented is not less beautiful. Especially with the addition of green rice fields that add to the beauty of this tourist spot.
When there are visitors thinking of going to Santirah which is a new tourist status, of course what they are worried about is the facilities. Visitors do not have to worry about Santirah having many facilities including: body rafting package with nasi liwet lunch, mineral water provided, insurance during adventure in Santirah, river tubing, life vest, dry bag, first aid kit and professional guides. Visitors can enjoy the 2 km track body rafting that can be taken for 2-3 hours. This tour will not be boring because it traces the river into 2 natural caves and the beauty of rural nature.
Green Santirah is located west of Pangandaran, a distance from Pangandaran itself 30 Km. To be able to reach the Santirah tourist location, there are a number of accesses that can be passed if using a private vehicle or group (Mini Bus, Medium Tourism Bus) from the direction of Green Canyon can use the Cigugur line, then from Panyingkiran Cibenda turn left towards Bontos. If from Pangandaran direction After tourists enter the Bojong Citumang Village route, tourists only need to be straight from the Citumang Green Valley crossing to the direction of Delasari Village. As for when using public transportation majoring in Cijulang or Cigugur, stop at Panyingkiran Cibenda followed by ojeg.
The advantages of Green Santirah
Green Santirah which is located in the Selasari Tourism Village area is an alternative if the Green Canyon and Green Valley are flooded. Usually when the two places were flooded, there was no flooding in the Santirah River because it was a more upstream location. On the body rafting package at Green Santirah also offers a meal package that is typical Sundanese Liwet rice but there is something unique because besides rice liwet visitors can also taste other menus such as Pindang Gunung and Honje Juice which are typical foods of Green Santirah. The difference between Santirah and the others is that the river in Santirah has several waterfalls which when tourists do body rafting occasionally tourists will be splashed with the waterfall.
3 Hours Before Flight Time
Santirah River Tubing has its own challenges that are very fitting to test your adrenaline, in addition to having a swift river current, various views of the waterfalls will accompany you along the river tubing activity on the Santirah river.
Very suitable for you who have adventurous spirit and want to test your mettle. You can also do the cliff jumping here with elevation to the highest variety of about 8m, dare to try?
River Tubing is actually an exciting activity in the water by riding a rubber tire (usually in the form of the inside of a truck wheel), then floats while down a river. I have long wanted to try this river tubing activity, yesterday finally I could try it at Santirah River Tubing.
Santirah River Tubing is located in Selasari Village, Parigi District, Pangandaran, West Java. To get here from the city of Pangandaran itself is about 15 km or about 45 minutes to an hour away. Santirah River Tubing is a relatively new tourist spot, but even so the river tubing in Selasari Village is a popular tourist spot for local people. From Pangandaran, I’ve arrived at Santirah River Tubing since morning with other blogger friends who want to try out the excitement of this place. Apart from the activity of this river tubing it will take about 2 hours, coming in the morning will avoid rain. So this river tubing activity will still be fun.
Before the river tubing activity starts, the first thing to do is to warm up. This heating is very important to do before carrying out activities in the water. By warming up, the body will avoid cramps which can be very dangerous if a sprain occurs. At Santirah River Tubing, the shower will be guided by a local guide. Fortunately warming up here is not boring, because it is done while singing together. The heating is done not too long, about 10 minutes. After that, we will go to the river tubing starting place, the river is not far from the warming. One by one river tubing participants set up their positions, sitting on rubber tires that had been selected according to body size.
“Sit comfortably!” Said the guide who helped me get on the rubber tires that I had chosen. “But don’t get immersed too deep. You can get hit by rocks in the river later, “he added. River tubing is actually tricky. The sitting position must be correct, sitting should not be too deep because the buttocks can be scratched by stones. Or it should not be too high, because it will be difficult to balance the rubber tires when sliding. The right thing!
River Tubing glides on this inexorably flowing river. The rapids are slightly visible, but not too tight. Not too far, a few meters from where I started to glide, there was a guide from Santirah River Tubing who caught the participant rubber tires.
“Stop, wait for another friend first,” said the guide earlier.
From the initial briefing, it was explained, that for river tubing some parts must be done together, and some parts can be done alone. Incidentally, the first rapids to be passed must be passed together. So, have to pause to wait for another friend.
To pass the first rapids, river tubing participants must be together, interrelating with each other. The one in front holds the participant’s feet behind him, extending like a snake, to the rubber band of 5 or 6 people. If it is complete, then released to pass the existing rapids, with the help of a guide from Santirah River Tubing.
The rapids that looked quite calm from afar earlier turned out to be ferocious too. The rubber band that was holding each other was scattered due to the strong rapids. Some fell into the river, some slipped off, some screamed enjoying the excitement of river tubing. It turned out that it was quite difficult for river tubing to rush through the rapids, so even though it fell into the river it felt comfortable.
After passing the first Jeram, the next is relaxation. That is passing through a quiet part of the river, floating on rubber tires comfortably. However, in this section I will pass the Long Cave of Santirah whose length is up to several tens of meters. For those who are afraid of the dark, get ready screaming horror. You see, in the middle of the cave will be really dark!
In Santirah River Tubing which is about 1.5 KM in length it is indeed unique and interesting. I am not just sitting on a tire and following the flow of the river. However, along the river tubing on this river, I will also pass 4 Natural Caves and 5 Waterfalls.
For the caves to be passed are Gendang Cave, Panjang Santirah Cave, Lengkop Cave and Cukang Taneuh Cave. Meanwhile, the waterfalls that will be passed are Curtain Waterfall, Batu Munding Waterfall, Twin Curug Waterfall, Mini Curug Waterfall, and Curug Tiga Waterfall. The most interesting cave is the first cave that I passed, the Long Cave Santirah. While the coolest waterfalls are Curug Twin and Curug Tiga.
It is true that Long Santirah Cave is the most interesting. Because I can enjoy interesting stalactites and pass through the darkness while floating on rubber tires. Meanwhile, the other cave is a shorter cave. For waterfalls, the most interesting are Curug Kembar and Curug Tiga. Because that’s where you can feel the excitement of jumping from the height!
Santirah River Tubing is indeed not an ordinary river tubing as told at the beginning of the briefing. Here I am not just just floating while following the river flow. But also through some challenging rapids, walk through the rocks for a few moments, jump from the cliff, to jump from the top of the waterfall! Anyway, the adrenaline rushes really trying river tubing here! You could say this is the first river tubing in my life that will not be forgotten!
Passing 1.5 KM of river tubing for two hours is very pleasant. More exclamation in the river, eh suddenly the path is up. So I have to go back to the starting point of river tubing on foot for about 15 minutes. Oh well, he said in Pangandaran there are still many other river tubing to try!
Besides Santirah River Tubing, there are several other river tubing places that you can try. Among them are Sinjang Lawang River tubing, Jojogan, Citumang, Green Canyon, and Marga Cinta. There are many?
