Gunung gede is not worth the effort especially getting there from Jakarta is a huge waste of time.
You better give mount bromo, ijen on
Avoid coming to Jakarta
Agree. Totally worthless.
But we have already booked the tickets to jakarta. That was the only cheap air ticket we found during that period :D.
The company says, their package includes pickup and drop from jakarta, so traveling time will be OK i guess.
Any other alternative destinations near to jakarta?

You booked tickets to the unknown destination only because they were cheap? Without a research or a glance?....

You sound like my mom.
Your mom is a very wise woman. Listen to her always.
You are most welcome.
I can tell you first hand that there are places in and around Jakarta and west Java that are far better then any of the scum you will see in Bali or the other built up tourist spots.
Mt Pangrango is a great place, I personally hiked this on a self guided tour (found a mini bus at the bus station that was going that way).
There are many tour guild companies around. I know of a couple right at the train station in Bogor that run daily tours up there. Just have to watch the weather around bogor because it rain everyday this time of year.
Bogor is a great place with heaps to see and most people will be willing to help you find what you are looking for.
if you want to do mount pangrango then do it on a weekday since getting to the starting point from airport will take more then 4 hours if you are lucky up to 8 hours if you are unlucky.
Try to get another domestic ticket to yogyakarta, you will enjoy it more over there with no crazy traffic
@Duskit Thank you verify much for the replies.
@ekoputranto Thank you for the reply. Yes plan is to travel to bogor starting early morning (5 am) on a friday
Just get ready for shower as this time Bogor area will be lots of rain, mostly heavy rainz. This mountain has lot of good spot such as waterfalls, national park (Cibodas). You can register at post available after pay little for entry fee. Perhaps you can find freelancer guide there.
Going up is risky in rainy season and you may not permitted for various reason, sometimes because of heavy rain, fog etc. Have a nice trip.
