The Jakarta Post
Mount Gede Pangrango National Park (TNGGP) in West Java has been closed for climbing activities because of a current extreme rainy season, as well as to give time for the ecosystem to recover.
TNGGP spokesperson Ade Bagja said on Thursday that the closure started on Dec 31, 2016 and would remain closed until March 31, however, the move only applied to climbing activities. “The recreation area, for example, which is used for environmental education is still open,” he said, adding that people could also still enjoy the camping ground near the TNGGP headquarters.
The national park is one of the most popular spots for trekking that is near Jakarta, where 100,000 people visit annually
