  • In Central Java, there are several artificial and natural lakes. One of the natural lakes in Central Java is Rawa Pening. Rawa Pening is located in the Ambarawa district. We can enjoy the beauty of the lake by riding a boat that will take us to the middle of the lake. Before reaching the middle of the lake, we will find a lot of water hyacinths that grow. Then, in the middle of the lake, there are fish ponds that make many white cranes fly over or perch on cages. Besides, on the edge of the lake, there are also parks, restaurants, and a game arena for children. This place is perfect for relaxing with family and friends, because it is in a pretty high contour area, in the foot of the mountain, don't forget to bring a jacket when visiting the lake! :)
