Jonggol (calon ibukota negara RI di tahun 90-an)

Jonggol… kecamatan kecil di sebelah Timur Laut Kab.Bogor ini pada pertengahan 1990-an pernah dicanangkan jadi lokasi baru ibukota negara menggantikan Jakarta.

Akses ke sini cukup mudah, tinggal menjalani Raya Akses Cibubur, terus melewati flyover Cileungsi, terus arah Taman Buah Mekarsari hingga sekitar 10 km lagi tiba di Kec. Jonggol. Kira2 sekitar 40 km lah dari simpang Cawang UKI Jakarta.

Adapun wilayah kecamatannya luas dan masih asri, penuh persawahan dan ladang-ladang. Sepertinya industri dan pemukiman2 tidak banyak diizinkan di daerah kecamatan sini, mungkin karena memang suatu saat bisa saja dipersiapkan lagi jadi ibukota negara.

Blue Morning in Mount Salak

In that morning I went with my aunty to the market in Bogor, West Java. 7.00 AM, it was breeze.
But the climate is wonderful and clear, the Mount Salak show his skin to us that I cannot resist not to take selfie photo with the mountain. So here it is (I was yet to take a bath so my face is still looked sleepy 😀 )

Bogor View from Bogor Trade Mall – Salak Mountain, the residences, river, South-East perspective

A hilly city, Bogor is a pleasing place for spending times with photography. Located 40 km in the South of Jakarta, many points in this city offer chances to capture glorious views towards the valleys and mountains in and outside the city.

One place is from the right-side and back-side of Bogor Trade Mall, one of the most famous shopping center in Bogor city. From this angle, we can see the Bogor valley around Cisadane river and the mountains, especially Salak mountain in the far South. And the late afternoon is a perfect way to take photos, since the twilight can be seen clearly in the blue sky with sunshine sparkling among the white clouds depicting a great view to enjoy.

Please have your time and enjoy 🙂
