18 Pictures of Java's Green Canyon That Will Have You Packing For A Holiday

In the Cijulang region of West Java, tucked away on the southern coast, is an emerald beauty named the Green Canyon. Famous to many locals in the region, and to the odd adventurous backpacker, this natural gem is a sight to behold and experience!


Locally known as 'Cukang Taneuh', Sundanese for the 'Bridge of earth', the Green Canyon is a long strip of lush green gorge, bottomed by a gorgeous river that sparkles turquoise in the dry season.

Trips begin with a ride on a local boat down a jungle-lined river:
