Dragons and Waterfalls in Java

By Linda Tancs

The Global Geoparks Network is a collection of sites of international geological significance. One of those geoparks is Ciletuh-Palabuhanratu Geopark in West Java, Indonesia. The oldest rocks in the park were formed by the subduction process between the Eurasian and the Indian Ocean tectonic plates. One of its unique structures is a rocky complex called Dragon Spine Rock, representing the oldest sedimentary deposits in West Java. It’s located in the southern part of the park, where you’ll also find steep cliffs featuring spectacular waterfalls like Awang, Java’s version of Niagara. Cliffside spots are perfect for shutterbugs.
