Cisadap Buara Dam in Brebes Regency, Central Java Province
For some people, visiting a dam becomes a good idea to spend a holiday. The most important aspect is only the destination. In Brebes Regency, for example, there is Cisadap Buara Dam! As the name suggests, it is located in Buara Village and belongs to Ketanggungan Sub-District. In terms of function, it is similar to other dams. However, this one has become an alternative to spend a relaxing time either alone or with families. Most tourists come to the location to enjoy relaxation, photography, and exploration actually.
In terms of nuance, Cisadap Buara Dam is considered peaceful. The reason is that the dam is located in a secluded village. It resides at the height of 50 meters above the sea level and the site has a high rainfall. Not to mention the location features hilly areas, which make it soothing and comfortable. What about the size? The dam has a moderate size and sturdy construction. The flow of the river is not quite strong either. The thing is tourists should be careful in exploring the site during a rainy season. Not only the site becomes slippery, but it also comes with a stronger current of the river.
