The city of Bandung is surrounded by mountain and plateau areas with Punclut as the nearest one. Located only 7 km from the downtown. Punclut (Puncak Ciumbuleuit) is the local favorite destination for a quick getaway from the city. The area is pretty much still green and polluted-free.

The highland is also the best place to see Bandung from the top. Punclut covers a 286-hectare area of Ciumbuleuit village, Cidadap Bandung. In the past, the area was designed to be a nature reserve. But nowadays the government sticks with the 80:20 rule. The 80% reserve for nature and only 20% of the area is allowed to use.

Punclut acts as an important catchment area in rainwater harvesting. Deforestation at Punclut can cause severe floods in the urban area below. As a weekend spot, local tourists’ top activities here at Punclut includes eating at one of the restaurants. Taking kids to the leisure park while still manage to enjoy the hill and city view.
