Tugu Kilometer Nol Sabang
Tugu Kilometer Nol Sabang Reviews
Unfortunately Neglected May 15, 2011
I would like to recommend Tugu Kilometer Nol but condition of the place made me hesitate. Many Graffiti, and The Monument itself looks more like public bathroom than a monument marks the westernmost tip of Indonesia. The Place has view to the ocean, with such of geographical benefit, well built of the place with good architecture, facility and probably museum would made this place recommended place to visit. His current condition, really unfortunate.
However, if you already in Iboih Beach and think why not visit it, it's further north-west 8 km. If you start from Balohan ferry port, it's 43 km or 45 minutes BEAUTIFUL UP & DOWN HILL ride with view of Aneuk Laot Lake and Monkey Forest, on smooth asphalt road.
A little more:
-This Monument have been moved 8 km north on President Habibie Era, also its current location is not westernmost tip of Indonesia, Pulau Rondo (Rondo Island) is the westermost tip of Indonesia, but due to difficult access, the monument built here.
-Ruins of previous location is near Iboih - Tugu Nol Kilometer intersection
-Optional, IDR 25.000 for Tugu Kilometer Nol certificate with your name (we visited the place around 6 PM, the office already close, but our driver help us to get our certificate from Sabang City)
-Tame Wild Boar on parking lot
-Our Driver told us, on the forest we passed to get here, he used to see snake as big as thigh cross the street and run over by vehicle, but no harm on the snake
-Also cows roam freely on the streets
-Smooth asphalt road since after tsunami, because before that Aceh in conflict
