Tespong Lake (Telaga Tespong), Cibujangga Spring (mata air Cibujangga) and Fish Therapy.

        Within a few hundred metres on the same road you can find all 3 of these places.
Tespong Lake
        This is a pleasant untouched lake right off the beaten track. There are 2 small waterfalls and the lake is surrounded by forest on 3 sides. To get there you will have to walk down from Padaherang Village. It's a nice walk about 20 mins through stepped padi fields and forest. Quite steep but not difficult.There is a plan to build a path from the main road in this coming year.

Cibujangga Spring
           This is a nice place to stop and have a coffee, just relax a bit or even jump in the spring water. This is only a small spring which flows along in a small river for about 25metres before going down the mountain. The water is crystal clear and cool. So very refreshing if you have just had a hike or it's a hot day. There is a small warung (food/drink stall) here and the young guys that run it are very friendly and ever so happy to see a foreigner stop here. Actually, I'm the only foreigner who has ever stopped here. Good little place to relax for a while and practice your Bahasa.

Fish Therapy 
          Today, about 30 metres before Cibujangga a swimming pool opened. Here they have the fish which eat dead skin. They call it fish therapy, it's good for excma and other skin disorders. I will post more info when I have it.
