Kampung Naga is very amazing with its traditional villages and way of living. It's about an hour from Tasikmalaya heading to Singaparna. The Kampung Naga people live in harmony with the nature, keep the numbers of houses limited. They still do farming in a traditional way and keep the forest in the village. We can find a local guide there,... More

But thats the essence of your trip here. it will be unforgetable culture experience. dont worry to visit because this... More

The views are amazing. The steps are scary. My knees were swollen for a week afterwards. (I do have problems normally) I am glad I went down to the village. The trek back up was very slow. I was accompanied by some locals which included 2 girls from the nearby school. That was definitely an added bonus. They really enjoyed... More

Don't let them make you believe you need a local guide to visit this village, although a guide could explain some local customs.

We love it. Our guide, Pak Hardi, can speak English very well. He was born and raised in the village. After he got married, he has to move out. There is no more space for new family. He still has uncle and parent who stay there. The village dated back 1400. Well maintained. No funny smell even they still practice... More

The Sundanese people do live on a traditional manner of live, without electricity. You need to take a guide to visit the village. The guide is very interesting, he tells about the live of the people and give answer to every question. It's like you go back into the time. Life is well organised in Kampung Naga. Count around 2...

I can't help but felt that the village has been purposely set in such a way for tourist. I mean how is it possible that stalls are sprouting at the very nice entrance with proper signboard that says Kampung Naga, yet the residents in this village has no access to electricity? People in the neighboring shops were watching shows on... More
