Site Description
A 10 km long freshwater lake and surrounding freshwater swamp forest, one of the few remaining in Java which has not been converted to wet rice cultivation. Most of the surface of the lake is covered by floating vegetation. 15 small rivers drain into the lake from surrounding mountains (90 – 200m altitude), but there is only one outlet, the Cidana river (flowing into the Cimanuk), leaving the lake by the 12m waterfalls at Curuk Betung. The water depth is 1 – 5m. The swamp forest was already described as being unique for Java and worthy of protecting by Hoogerwerf in 1936. Principal vegetation: Eichornia crassipes (in the lake). The swamp vegetation, particularly that found in the south-eastern portion of the reserve, is of great botanical interest with some of the tree species, such as Alstonia spatulata and Ficus retusa, normally found only outside Java. Notable species include Alocasia bantamnensis and a subspecies of Coix lachryma-jobi. See Endert 1932 for more detailed species list.
