Ciwalini Hot Water Spring Pool

Text and pictures by Eki Qushay Akhwan

Ciwalini is the name a place in the south of Bandung and a large tea plantation where this hot water spring and open air pool is located. Being surrounded by mountains and active volcanoes, Bandung naturally has a number of hot water springs. Unlike some other hot water springs which have become commercialized resorts, however, Ciwalini remains a popular destination.

This hot spring pool sounds wonderful! There's one in the Philippines that I go to, but it's very far away.

Really nice photos, and such colors and it even looks like it is about to rain there. I like your work a lot and wish I could smell the smells and hear the sounds of your city.

This water park seems very uncrowded compared to Raging Waters, a park in the LA area. There you'll find wall-to-wall people in the pools and river and hour-long waits from some rides.

I'm surprised by the lack of landscaping around the pools and amused by the bridges.

A waterfall would be a nice addition.
