when we got one step
i can't make imagination if i have to replay my journey throughout Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park as known as one of the world heritage in Indonesia. Only a little stuff to prepare this road show, because i've been getting it 5 years ago. Yeah, i had to replay it.  There were 2 districts where i passed, Tanggamus and West lampung districts.  On Tanggamus, we had to watch a scenery of Bukit Barisan Natioanl Park and be completed when we got a Lumbok whereabouts had a nice view of a mountain (called as Seminung) in the mid of Ranau Lake.

Tanggamus District's views

Step 1. Way Lalaan's Waterfall
Only a hour past aquarter, we got Way Lalaan waterfall. This small waterfall had 8 meters of height and lay down in a mid of Kota Agung's Valley (a main city of Tanggamus).  This place had a nice scenery and fresh air.
we felt so happy
 

Step 2. Piabung's Beach
After we got 4 km's road from Way Lalaan, we reached Piabung's beach.  This beach had characters as Semaka bay region which had a deep water and wave drift.  So, we could find a high abrasion surrounding its coastal.

Step 3. Sedayu Village
Next, we went to a green coffee center in Sedayu Village.  This green coffee of Tanggamus has called as Kuyung Arang coffee.  This product was a great effort to rehabilitate of illegal coffee farmer who has been encrouching of Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park.  This program came from Lampung Forestry Department and WWF for Nature of Lampung.  So, The Green coffee farming was not seeking of quantity but the main goal of this program was to reach a quality product and to reduce of encrouchment of Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park.
and we'll be so excited
   "Hmmm...it's great tastes...", i said when i got it. As be a coffee mania, this coffee had a unique flavor than the other, and more expensive of course.

Step 4. Sukaraja, met with The Greatest Flower in The World
it could be, it was our great lucky.  You knew why? we had to meet and observe for Rafflesia sp which had the great sepal and petal .  This padma was famous as the Greatest Flower in This World.  It will get in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park across to Bengkulu (Lampung's Province neighbour).  Everyone got its time.  For me, this was third times to watch a Rafflesia blossom. Nice momment.

Step 5. Pemerihan's Sanctuary
At least 30 minutes from Rafflesia's home, we got Pemerihan.
when we had to watch our trips
  This place was a sanctuary for some elephant which had to stand guard Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park's region.

West Lampung's District

Step 6. Way Jambu's Beach
When late of evening, i got Way Jambu coastal.  This place was a last region of Tanggamus.  Lay down in Krui and be a paradise for the surfers who came from Australia, Europa, New Zealand, and America.  Way Jambu and Tanjung Setia, we called that, where be a main purpose of surfers after Bali region.  We can find some eco-cottage and homestay throughout this coastal region. Nice place and great views when the sunrise played 'hide and seek' with us.

Step 7. Lumbok
For our last Jouney was Lumbok. A highland area was in the west edge of West Lampung. Unfortunately,  we got it when the darkness was coming.  We need a few time to get our sleep in cottage of Lumbok.
Early morning, i tried to explore this place.  "this was a nice place...i can see Mount of Seminung was covering the clouds...i can say "hello" to Ranau's Lake, and played with sulfur water that made our body so fresh.

Yah, we had to finish our journey in Lumbok. But, we trust if we can get to replay this time again.  we hope so...
