Ranjeng Lake

>> Sep 22, 2010

The lake is located in my husband’s home town (Bumiayu, Central Java, Indonesia) city. From the center of the city, it takes about thirty minutes through the uphill and windy roads to arrive at Ranjeng Lake. The lake is laid under the Slamet Mountain and a part of 48, 5 hectares preserved forest.

Ranjeng Lake is different from other lakes. Thousands catfish live in this lake. Several months ago, you can see the fish in a very close distance or even touch them! The lake’s depth is about three meters but there is a narrow and shallow spot (about ten meters square area) by the edge of the lake that the crowd of catfish are used to gather. Unfortunately, according to the Lake Keeper statement; it has already been nine months that the catfish can't be seen anymore. On my last visit several days ago; I only see some goldfish.

In other water recreation objects, you are able to swim, catch fish, ride a boat around the lake and do other things you want to do. But on the Ranjeng Lake, there is no one dares to do such activities like that. Local people still believe that the lake and also the fish are very sacred. The good point is; this local faith keeps Ranjeng Lake as a natural beauty. The water is so pure and clean from any pollution.

When I was nearing the lake to see goldfish, actually I walked on the water surface. The thick grasses protected me from falling down into the lake. Watch out with your step; choose the grass spots that are strong enough to walk on. It feels like walking on a hanging bridge; but this time, your feet are wet.
