Angseri Natural Hot Spring

Angseri Natural Hot Spring

Udah lama banget ga nulis di blog lagi sampai blognya banyak sarang laba-labanya hahaha..
Kebetulan Hari Sabtu kemarin, tanggal 03 Nopember 2018, aku mengunjungi daerah Tabanan dan sampai di salah satu pemandian yang terkenal dengan air panasnya yang alami alias Natural Hot Spring, jadi bukan buatan temen-temen :)
Angseri Natural Hot Spring ini tepatnya terletak di Desa Angseri, Kecamatan Baturiti, Kabupaten Tabanan, Provinsi Bali.


Di wisata pemandian air panas ini temen-temen, ada 1 (satu) pemandian air panas yang umum yang disediakan untuk para pengunjung yang ingin melihat pemandangan air terjun kecil, ada 1 pancuran air panas yang lumayan bikin relax, pemandangan hijau juga disekitarnya, dan airnya ga terlalu panas temen-temen.
Dengan membayar biaya masuk 10rb saja temen-temen sudah bisa menikmati fasilitas pemandian air panas yang umum. Kalau parkir untuk kendaraan, sepeda motor 2rb, mobil 5rb.

Nah kalau temen-temen pengen lebih private (ga gabung sama pengunjung lain), juga ada fasilitas private bilik dengan dinding bambu temen-temen. Penambahan biaya adalah 15rb - 20rb/orang, maksimal 6 orang masih bisa masuk di dalam 1 bilik, kalau lebih sudah kurang nyaman karena biliknya juga tidak terlalu besar. Ada lebih dari 5 bilik yang disediakan. Ini sebuah ruangan yang langsung ada kolam kecil sejenis jacuzzi tapi tidak semewah di hotel temen-temen. Disediakan juga 1 fasilitas seperti rak tempel di tembok buat meletakan barang bawaan temen-temen biar ga basah.
Air di dalam bilik lebih panas dari yang di pemandian umum, mungkin karena tempat airnya lebih kecil dan ada diruangan tertutup. Untuk penyewaan bilik, ini diabatasin untuk 30 menit saja, karena kalau terlalu lama berendam dengan air panas mengandung belerang di dalam ruangan, juga kurang baik temen-temen.

Dilansir dari manfaat.co.id/manfaat-air-belerang, berikut manfaat air belerang:
Sebagai Detox
Berendam di air belerang selama kurang lebih 20 menit dapat membuka pori- pori pada kulit tubuh anda sehingga kandungan belerang yang ada pada air dapat masuk ke tubuh anda. Dengan kandungan belerang yang cukup maka ini membantu proses detox sehingga racun ataupun zat berbahaya pada tubuh anda dapat dikeluarkan.

Obat Penyakit Kulit
Bagi anda yang ingin menyembuhkan penyakit kulit seperti gatal, alergi, kutil dan jamur pada kulit berbeda dengan manfaat buah honje, anda tidak perlu khawatir lagi. Selain mengandalkan obat dokter, ada cara alami lainnya yaitu dengan berendam di air belerang hangat selama kurang lebih 30 menit.

Obat Infeksi
Tidak hanya mampu mengobati penyakit kulit tetapi air belerang mampu mengobati infeksi, tentunya infeksi pada bagian kulit. Untuk menyembuhkan infeksi anda bisa berendam pada air belerang selama 30 menit, ini sangat ampuh dan efektif.

Obat Flu
Bagi anda yang sering terkena flu berbeda dengan manfaat buah markisa, anda bisa mencoba cara berikut. Caranya mudah selain dapat mengobati juga dapat mencegah serta meningkatkan sistem imun anda sehingga anda tidak mudah terkena flu. Secara rutin anda bisa berendam di air belerang selama 10 menit.

Obat Sakit Kepala
Tidak hanya mampu mengobati flu, jika anda merasa sakit di bagian kepala entah itu karena stress atau penyakit kepala lainnya seperti migraine ataupun vertigo anda bisa mencoba cara berikut. Berendamlah di air belerang namun jangan terlalu lama, palin lama anda hanya bisa berendam selama 20 menit saja.

Obat Insomnia
Memiliki banyak sekali beban pikiran, terkadang ini membuat anda jadi lebih sulit tidur hingga mengalami insomnia. Untuk mengobatinya anda bisa berendam di air belerang, ini akan membuat sistem saraf pikiran jadi lebih rileks sehingga anda bisa tidur lebih tenang.

Obat Jerawat
Bagi anda yang memiliki masalah jerawat tidak hanya jerawat muka saja tetapi juga jerawat pada punggung berbeda dengan manfaat tauge mentah untuk wanita – pria – anak, maka anda bisa berendam di air hangat selama 20 menit. Ini akan membuat jerawat pada kulit jadi kering dan hilang.

Kalau berendam di pemandian air panas alami yang ada belerangnya, selain manfaat di atas, temen-temen juga dapat manfaat lain seperti menghilangkan penat, karena akan membuat badan lebih relax yang tadinya tegang karena kegiatan sehari-hari.

Nah fasilitas selanjutnya adalah pancuran buat mandi dan ruang ganti (tanpa penambahan biaya).

Di sepanjang jalan setapak ke parkiran dari lokasi pemandian air panas (jalan kaki sekitar 5 menit kurang lebih), temen-temen juga bisa menjumpai beberapa warung makan yang menjual tipat cantok, es kelapa muda, kopi, durian (karena musim kali ya waktu ini) dan makan/minuman lainya.


Habis berendam, badan ringan dan relax, perut kosong, langsung makan dengan pemandangan persawahan. What a beautiful day, ya temen-temen.Oh oya, kalau ketemu kucing putih itu, namanya Bai Mao ya, waktu itu dia belum punya nama, jadi kata ibu warungnya, boleh dikasi nama. Bai Mao diambil dari Bahasa Mandarin yang artinya Kucing Putih.

Segitu dulu nih review tentang pemandian air panas di desa Angseri dan aku rekomendasiin kalian mesti coba, bisa ajak temen-temen atau keluarga. Dan budgetnya juga ga mahal temen-temen, masih masuk kantong anak kos-kosan lah seperti aku, haha..

Nanti aku review tentang Jatiluwih Rice Terrace di blog selanjutnya, karena ga jauh areanya dari pemnadian air panas ini.
Kunjungin terus blog ini ya temen-temen.
Bye for now :)

Taman Nasional Bali Barat (West Bali National Park)



Riwayat Taman Nasional Bali Barat (TNBB) dimulai sejak tanggal 24 Maret 1911, ketika seorang ahli biologi dari Jerman, Dr. Baron Stressman, mendarat di sekitar wilayah Singaraja karena kapal Ekspedisi Maluku II yang ditumpanginya mengalami kerusakan. Baron Stressman tinggal di wilayah ini selama tiga bulan. Melalui penelitian yang tak disengaja, Baron Stressman menemukan spesies burung endemik yang langka, yaitu jalak bali (leucopsar rothschildi) di Desa Bubunan, sekitar 50 km dari Singaraja.
Selain jalak bali, hewan langka lainnya yang hidup di taman nasional ini adalah harimau bali. Untuk melindungi hewan-hewan langka tersebut, maka Dewan Raja-raja di Bali mengeluarkan SK No. E/I/4/5/47 tanggal 13 Agustus 1947 yang menetapkan kawasan Hutan Banyuwedang dengan luas 19.365,6 ha sebagai Taman Pelindung Alam (Natur Park) yang statusnya sama dengan suaka margasatwa.
  
Taman Nasional Bali Barat memiliki jenis ekosistem yang unik, yaitu perpaduan antara ekosistem darat dan ekosistem laut. 
Di kawasan ini, wisatawan dapat menjelajahi ekosistem daratan (hutan), mulai dari hutan musim, hutan hujan dataran rendah, savana, hingga hutan pantai. 
 Sementara pada ekosistem perairan (laut), wisatawan dapat menyaksikan hijaunya hutan mangrove, keelokan pantai, ekosistem coral, padang lamun, serta perairan laut dangkal dan dalam. Di tengah-tengah taman ini didominasi oleh sisa-sisa empat gunung berapi dari zaman Pleistocene, dengan gunung Patas sebagai titik tertinggi di tempat ini. Memasuki kawasan hutan, maka wisatawan dapat menjumpai sekitar 75 jenis tumbuhan, 14 jenis di antaranya terbilang langka, antara lain bayur (pterospermum diversifolium), ketangi (lagerstroemia speciosa), burahol (steleochocarpus burahol), cendana (santalum album), sonokeling (dalbergia latifolia), dan lain-lain. Selain itu, wisatawan juga dapat melihat langsung aneka jenis satwa yang hidup bebas di taman nasional ini,seperti burung jalak bali (leucopsar rothschildi) yang merupakan hewan endemik dan langka, burung ibis putih kepala hitam (threskiornis elanocephalus), kijang (muntiacus muntjak), trenggiling (manis javanicus), landak (hystric brachyura), serta kancil (tragulus javanicus), menjangan (Cervus timorensis) kera abu-abu (Macaca fasicularis), kera hitam (Presbytes criscata)kucing liar (Felis bengalensis), banteng (Bos javanicus) dan banyak lagi burung-burung dan reptilnya. Sementara jenis fauna yang terkenal di perairan taman nasional ini adalah ikan hiu (carcharodon carcharias), ikan bendera (plateak pinnatus), serta Selain menikmati ekosistem daratan dan perairan, wisatawan juga dapat menjelajahi pulau-pulau kecil yang menjadi bagian dari Taman Nasional Bali Barat, antara lain Pulau Menjangan, Pulau Gadung, Pulau Burung, serta Pulau Kalong. Pulau Menjangan merupakan salah satu pulau favorit yang kerap dikunjungi oleh wisatawan. Pulau dengan luas sekitar 6.000 ha ini merupakan habitat menjangan atau rusa (cervus timorensi). Tak hanya itu, wisatawan juga dapat menyelam di perairan di sekitar Pulau Menjangan untuk melihat gugusan karang yang indah dengan jenis ikan karang yang beragam.
Selain menikmati keindahan alam dan binatang liar, wisatawan juga dapat melakukan wisata ziarah ke makam Mbah Temon, yaitu petilasan yang ditemukan oleh sesepuh masyarakat sekitar bernama Mat Yamin pada tahun 1954. Dinamai Mbah Temon karena petilasan ini baru ditemukan (temu atau ketemu) setelah Mat Yamin melakukan olah semedi. Petilasan lainnya yang cukup melegenda adalah makam I Wayan Jayaprana. Jayaprana adalah seorang pemuda tampan yang dalam Babad Bali dikisahkan telah dibunuh oleh Patih Sawunggaling, utusan Raja Kalianget, karena sang raja menginginkan istri Jayaprana yang cantik jelita, Ni Nyoman Layonsari.  Wilayah TNBB terbentang di dua kabupaten, yaitu Kecamatan Melaya, Kabupaten Jembrana, dan Kecamatan Gerokgak, Kabupaten Buleleng, Provinsi Bali, Indonesia.
Taman Nasional Bali Barat mudah dicapai baik dari Kota Denpasar maupun dari Pelabuhan Gilimanuk. Hal ini karena lokasi taman nasional ini dilalui oleh jalan raya Gilimanuk—Negara maupun jalan raya Gilimanuk—Singaraja. Untuk menuju lokasi, wisatawan dapat menggunakan mobil pribadi atau menggunakan kendaraan umum (bus, taksi, atau carter mobil). Untuk memudahkan perjalanan wisata, maka wisatawan dapat mencapai Taman Nasional Bali Barat dengan dua alternatif. Pertama, apabila memulai perjalanan dari Pelabuhan Gilimanuk, maka wisatawan dapat mengunjungi Kantor Balai Taman Nasional Bali Barat yang berlokasi di Desa Gilimanuk, Kecamatan Melaya, Kabupaten Jembrana. Kantor ini berjarak sekitar 200 km dari Kota Denpasar. Alternatif kedua, apabila wisatawan berangkat dari arah Kota Denpasar atau khusus ingin mengunjungi Pulau Menjangan, maka ada baiknya untuk memulainya dari Teluk Labuhan Lalang. Dari Labuhan/Dermaga Lalang wisatawan dapat dengan mudah menuju Pulau Menjangan atau pulau-pulau kecil lainnya. Taman Nasional Bali Barat memiliki berbagai macam akomodasi dan fasilitas, antara lain pemandu wisata (guide), pondok jaga, pondok wisata (untuk istirahat wisatawan), menara pandang, jalan setapak untuk memudahkan penjelajahan, penyewaan peralatan selam, speed boat, dan lain-lain. Wisatawan yang ingin menyelam dengan menyewa dive operator dengan tambahan biaya .. Khusus untuk fasilitas penyeberangan ke Pulau Menjangan, wisatawan dapat menyewa perahu dengan mesin tempel. Apabila wisatawan memerlukan penginapan, di sekitar Labuhan Lalang maupun di Pelabuhan Gilimanuk banyak terdapat penginapan baik hotel melati, resort, maupun hotel berbintang.

Telaga Waja River give harder taste, just like adrenaline booster! The rapid is fantastic and just wait until you find the Water Dam, with depth 04 meters! Some organizer that will have Telaga Waja Rafting are Bali Rafting, Sobek, Alam Rafting. For the lower budget you can use Bali Rafting or Alam Rafting, but if you wish to have better facilities you can choose Sobek Bali Utama.
