Island Life: Gurun Pelawan, Bangka Island

Sunday, July 08, 2018


In my first time visited Bangka island three years ago, I didn't even know this gorgeous desert existed. Thus, when I went to Namang district three years ago, I only visited Hutan Pelawan (you can see my article here). Too bad, I know! This place is only about 15 minutes away from Hutan Pelawan. If only I knew, I'd definitely came by sooner. But maybe this place wasn't that famous like it is now. So never mind, better late than never, right? But if you happen to visit Hutan Pelawan make sure to visit Gurun Pelawan also! It's in the same direction so you won't need to re-route.

And just like Danau Kaolin, Gurun Pelawan is also a wasted mining land so don't expect the real desert here. LOL. It is SO beautiful! I can't even say a word to curse it. HAHAA. But beware because the soil looks like clay so it will stains and sticks to your shoes, just like mine. LOL. Oh, oh, sunblock, sunglasses, and floppy hat are must bring items!

***************************************************

Saat pertama kali mengunjungi pulau Bangka tiga tahun yang lalu, aku belum tahu bahwa ada gurun sebagus ini di sini. Karena itu, saat pergi ke daerah Namang tiga tahun lalu, aku hanya mengunjungi Hutan Pelawan (bisa kalian lihat artikelnya di sini). Sangat disayangkan, aku tahu! Gurun Pelawan hanya 15 menit jaraknya dari Hutan Pelawan. Jika aku tahu, pasti aku bakal kesini lebih cepat. Tapi mungkin dulu tempat ini belum seterkenal sekarang, jadi ya sudahlah lebih baik terlambat daripada tida sama sekali, bukan? Jika kalian berkesempatan untuk mampir ke Hutan Pelawan, pastikan kalian juga mengunjungi Gurun Pelawan! Kedua tempat ini satu arah kok, jadi kalian tidak perlu pusing harus putar balik.

Sama seperti Danau Kaolin, Gurun Pelawan juga merupakan tanah bekas pertambangan jadi jangan berharap "gurun" sesungguhnya ya. LOL. Tapi ini SANGAT CANTIK! Aku bahkan gak bisa berkata apa-apa lagi. HAHAA. Tapi hati-hati karena tanah di sini seperti tanah liat yang akan meninggalkan noda dan lengket ke sepatumu, seperti milikku. LOL. Oh, oh, sunblock, kacamata, dan topi yang lebar adalah barang wajib yang harus dibawa!
