TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Nestled in the heart of Blok Sadarehe, Desa Payung, Kecamatan Rajagaluh, Majalengka, West Java, Indonesia lies a hidden gem known as Sagovi Camp Ground. Perched at an altitude of 1,100 meters above sea level, this picturesque location offers the perfect retreat for those seeking solace and a deep connection with nature.

Though undergoing some recent renovations, Sagovi Camp Ground has already unveiled its basic facilities, making it a welcoming haven for campers. One of its standout features is the dedicated camping area, which can comfortably accommodate approximately 50 tents or around 200 people. Alongside ample parking space, visitors can find a mosque and seven-door restrooms within the vicinity.

What sets Sagovi Camp Ground apart is its complimentary Wi-Fi access and solar-powered lighting, ensuring that modern comforts harmonize with the tranquility of nature.

The inception of this campsite is rooted in years of observation, as it became evident that this region was a favorite haunt for camping enthusiasts. "Back then, with no specific management in place, campers would set up tents haphazardly, sometimes encroaching upon local farmlands," Iyus the manager of the area said.

This prompted Iyus and his team to establish a designated camping area - Sagovi Camp Ground, along with the neighboring Cidewata campsite. The merger of these two campgrounds was aimed at enhancing the facilities for camping enthusiasts while curbing unregulated camping activities.

How to Get There

The access to Sagovi Camp Ground can be achieved via two routes, Sadarehe and Malarhayu. However, the management recommends choosing the Malarhayu route, as the condition of the road leading to Sadarehe can be quite uncomfortable at present.

For easier navigation, visitors are encouraged to set their GPS coordinates to "Hutan Pinus Batu Nyongclo." Upon reaching this point, follow the trail towards Malarhayu, which is approximately 2 kilometers away from that juncture, ultimately leading to your destination.

As for admission, the entrance fee on weekdays is Rp. 15,000 per person, while on weekends it's Rp. 20,000 per person. This fee covers parking and complimentary Wi-Fi access. The campsite management is considerate and offers lighting and phone charger facilities to forgetful campers, free of charge.

With daytime temperatures averaging between 23 to 27 degrees Celsius and nighttime temperatures ranging from 16 to 18 degrees Celsius, it's advisable for travelers to pack warm clothing, jackets, and sleeping bags, as the nights can become quite chilly.

Additionally, the on-site dining options are relatively limited, so it's recommended to bring an ample supply of food and beverages when camping at Sagovi Camp Ground.

For more information and inquiries, Sagovi Camp Ground can be reached via WhatsApp at 0838 6614 7979. Whether you're an avid camper or a nature enthusiast, this serene and well-equipped campsite promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of Rajagaluh.
