'The Ridge'. Pilgrimage to the Tangkuban Perahu, Lembang, Java, Indonesia
Made by Rana Pipiens
Yes, a kind of pilgrimage, that's what brought me to Bandung and more specifically to the still active volcano, the Tangkuban Perahu, a bit more than 25 kms by road to the north of the city. Last year the mists made going up senseless (but for a photo taken on the Jayagiri path, see my 'Syrphidan Joy', posted on July 14, 2008). This time the skies in the morning were absolutely blue and clear. The views were wondrous, and the wonderfully fresh air perfumed now and then with little whisps of sulphur. A pilgramge indeed, for I wanted to see with my own eyes Franz Wilhelm Junghuhn's (1809-1864) favorite mountain. Junghuhn is an old favorite of mine. He was a great naturalist and also a philospher - in fact the founder of modern Dutch humanism. After a tumultous adolescence and less rather than more trained as a surgeon, he entered the service of the Dutch colonial government of Indonesia. Junghuhn had always had a penchant for natural studies: at the young age of 20 he'd already published a seminal scientific article about mushrooms (1830); once on Java, he gave a multi-volume physical description of that island, devoting particular attention to volcanoes (1845); an observant anthropologist, he surveyed the Batak Lands of Sumatra, including in his papers an analysis of the anthropophagism which he'd encountered (and apparently survived) (1847). None of Junghuhn's work was science for the sake of science; he sought to use his naturalist studies for practical purposes and for lifting humanity out of superstitions (by which he meant primarily those of christianity; hence many of his writings were banned in part of Germany and were difficult to publish even in the Netherlands). His practical bent in botany make him part of the exciting story of the introduction of cinchona (the anti-malarial bark) to Java from South America. He debated fiercely with the famous 'hortulanus' of what is now called the Kebun Raya at Bogor, Johannes Teijsmann (1808-1882). They fought over the best way to agriculturally, industrially grow and refine that cinchona. The terrible conditions of traveling in these tropical islands in the nineteenth century raised havoc with Junghuhn's health. To assuage a lung condition and to remove himself from the unwelcome company of people - he was something of a misanthrope regardless his love for humanity - he had a hut built for himself in the forest above the two craters divided by The Ridge on the photo (the great Queen Crater [Kawah Ratu] on the left) and the Kawah Upas, on the right. Up in the forest and the fresh mountain air, Junghuhn might contemplate and seek - as he had once described the crater of another famous volcano, the Merapi - in it the awesome face of God, the God of Pandeism.

Admittedly, Saharanpur in the Uttar Pradesh iin the very north of India is rather far afield from Lembang, Java, Indonesia! Yet this Asian Dayflower or Marsh Spiderwort or Several-Flower Dewflower was named in Latin for the nineteenth-century hortulanus of the Company Garden of the British East Indies Trading Company in that remote city: Munshi Murdan Ali. It is a member of the Murdannia branch of the Commelinaceae family (the spiderworts). Out of several species, three carry the same botanist designation: 'Hassk'. 'Hassk.' stands for Justus Karl Hasskarl (1811-1894), a persevering German naturalist, especially botanist, in the service of the Dutch colonial administration of the Dutch East Indies: the Murdannia blumei Hassk., keisak Hassk., and loriformis Hassk. He first described these plants, naming the blumei after the Dutch botanist of German extraction Carl Ludwig Ritter von Blume (1789-1862), deputy director of the Botanical Garden of Buitenzorg (now the Kebun Raya Bogor) from 1823-1826. It would be appropriate if the loriformis is the Murdannia in the photo (I don't have enough knowledge to be able to differentiate; the loriformis grows at the highest altitude of the three, able to survive at about the 1200 m. of Lembang). Lembang is the last resting place of Franz Junghuhn (1809-1864), the famous Dutch-German naturalist-humanist who worked hard to establish the cinchona, and thus quinine production, in Indonesia. But he could do this only on the basis of the adventuresome exploits of Hasskarl. Hasskarl on the orders of the Duch government travelled to far-off Peru and Bolivia to secretly procure there seed and saplings of the cinchona tree. After many dangerous adventures a surviving selection was brought to Bogor (Buitenzorg), to Cibodas (on the Puncak Pass) and to Lembang. Though Hasskarl and Junghuhn fell out with each other, their work did coalesce and it was an important stepping stone in the mundial relief from malaria. These Dewflowers of the photo - it seems they are culitvated in Thailand for ailments connected to cancer - can be seen around the monument for Junghuhn and on the path leading to his beloved volcano Tangkubanperahu. I took this photo on a slightly overcast day just where the path leaves deciduous trees for the pine forests of the mountain. The hoverfly - probably a Marmelade Fly (I thank Wontolla65 for his gracious identification) described first by the Swedish naturalist Charles De Geer (1720-1778) - in all its syrphidan grace and intent on nectar seemed not at all perturbed by my nearness of only about 15 cm.

Perry being Happy for surviving a Volcano Visit. Tangkuban Perahu means as much as: a boat turned upside down. A dormant volcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java, Indonesia. It last erupted in 1959 It is a popular tourist attraction where tourists can hike or ride to the edge of the crater to view the hot water springs upclose, and buy eggs cooked on its hot surface. Information and the Legend from which this Mountain got its name on wikipedia. Java is the world's most densely populated island (population: 136 million). It is home to 60% of Indonesia's population. Much of Indonesian history took place on Java; it was the centre of powerful Hindu-Buddhist empires, Islamic sultanates, the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies, and was at the centre of Indonesia's campaign for independence. The island dominates Indonesian social, political and economic life. More information on wikipedia.

This photo was taken at Gunung Tangkuban Perahu. It was nice on the way down, but started to rain about 100 meters away from this place. Had to wait about 1.5 hrs before we could leave, but still raining so not may photo's taken while here. This was taken in a small warung as the rain was heavy and a lot of cloud around. Would have been good to get a little closer, but will have to go back another time. Will post some other photo's taken of the main crater before the rain.

Queen's Crater - Kawah Ratu

Queen's Crater - Kawah Ratu
Made by T e e J e
Kawah Ratu, which means Queen's Crater, is today just a big gray hole, which sometimes has a pool of water at its center. Poisonous gases sometimes accumulate in Kawah Ratu, thus making it somewhat of a risk to descend to the crater floor. Beyond the saddled shaped depression on the far side of Kawah Ratu is the still active Kawah Upas, the oldest crater on the mountain. On the very far western cliff we see a spot where all vegetation has been destroyed by constantly rising sulfurous vapors. On the crater walls, note the various layers of material consisting of rock, sand, and pebbles. Overtime, new craters have formed again and again in a rather consistent shift from west to east. The most well known of these is the Domas crater, but also there are other smaller ones in jungle on the mountain's northeastern flank.

Taken from Tangkuban Perahu. Stitched from 3 images. On a reasonably clear day, from Tangkuban Perahu, we can see not only the mountain range to the east, with Mt. Bukittunggul as its highest peak (2,209 m), but also two other in a northeasterly direction. The lower and nearer one is Mt. Tampomas (1,684 m) just north of Sumedang some 40 km away. To the right and about 90 km away is Mt. Ciremai close to Cirebon on the north coast. At 3,078 m, Mt. Ciremai is West Java's tallest mountain. At the foot of Mt. Tangkuban Perahu we see the Ciater tea plantation covering the rolling hills. Farther to the left are the northern coastal plains of Java, and on an extremely clear day we may even be able to see the Java Sea beyond.

Tangkuban Perahu, or Tangkuban Parahu in local Sundanese dialect, is an active volcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java, Indonesia. This stratovolcano last erupted in 1983. In April 2005 the Directorate of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation raised an alert, forbidding visitors from going up the volcano. Sensors on the slopes of the two mountains picked up an increase in volcanic activity and a build up of gases, said government volcanologist Syamsul Rizal.
