Saguling Lake

The tranquil water of Saguling amid the backdrop of the blue ridges of Bandung's southern mountain range seen from Cikadu, Sindangkerta, West Bandung Regency.

Saguling is a man-made en-catchment lake made for a hydroelectric power plant dam of the same name. It was built in 1985 and is located on the upstream of the Citarum River about 40 kilometers to the southwest of the city of Bandung at the elevation of about 650 meters above sea level.

The Saguling Dam currently produces 700 megawatts of electricity. The capacity can, however, be increased to 1400 megawatts when required. The dam is part of a system of three dams along the Citarum. The other two, located further downstream, are the Cirata and the Jatiluhur.

This lake provides a wonderful reflection. I love the colours of the lush green to the blue mountains to the white low lying clouds.

This is indeed a serene-looking place!


Water on Wednesday
And other days too,
Water for me, friend,
And water for you;

Water as ocean
And water as sea,
Water for you, friend,
And water for me;

Every day water
In puddle or ice
Or snowflakes or mist—
Oh, water is nice!
