Cisolok Geyser, Rare type of Geyser in the World

Cisolok Geyser is located in Wangunsari Village, Cisolok District, Sukabumi Regency. This location is about 16 km from the city of Pelabuhan Ratu. The definition of a geyser is a natural geyser that shoots into the air.

The Cisolok Geyser shoots hot water from the bowels of the earth continuously for 24 hours without stopping. There are several points that shoot hot water into the air at heights from 3.5 to dozens of meters. Currently the Cisolok geyser is included in the Ciletuh Geopark area.

In Indonesia, you cannot find the geyser phenomenon other than in Cisolok, Sukabumi. According to geological researchers, the geyser phenomenon is difficult to find anywhere in the world. The Cisolok Sukabumi Geyser is the only rare phenomenon that is still active today. Apart from Cisolok Sukabumi, this type of geyser is only found in Brazil.

Cisolok Geyser is very unique because it is located near the beach. In fact, in general, geysers will be located in mountainous and mountainous areas. After further investigation, the hot water that gushes from three points in the Cisolok hot springs is the result of water that gushes out as a geyser (the water is hot because it passes directly through the earth's crust and can reach 80 degrees Celsius).

Meanwhile, the swimming pool that can be used per person costs IDR 5,000 per hour. Apart from that, a fee of Rp. 15,000 is charged for bathing in a closed bathroom.
