Incredible Beauty of Air Terjun Seunerah

Incredible Beauty of Air Terjun Seunerah
Air Terjun Seunerah in Aceh Besar, probably not too well known. Water splashing against rocks always awesome! The water that spilled from the height of the rock cliffs into the beautiful scenery. Underneath, people gathered and ready to play a natural shower or swim in a cool pool. At various places in Indonesia, the waterfall has always been a fascinating natural attractions. 

Incredible Beauty of Air Terjun Seunerah

Air Terjun Seunerah located in Indrapuri, Kecamatan Cot Kuta Glei Aceh Besar, Aceh. Air Terjun Seunerah also located in North Region Ulu Masen national park, Aceh. In Ulu Masen, known variety of flora and fauna. Several almost extinct animal species, such as tigers, elephants, the Sumatran rhinoceros and orangutans also inhabit the forest.

Waterfall with a height of approximately 100 meters is has superb views. During the rainy season, the waterfall is very fascinating and frightening. Something amazing, because there is a 8x5 meters pool on top of the waterfall.

For hiking enthousiasts, starting from Keumireu – Lamleuot – Siron Blang -  Siron Krueng – Air Terjun Seunerah, there are a four hours  jungle trail walk to the beautiful Air Terjun Seunerah.

Everyone who will go to Air Terjun Seunerah must have permission from the Keuchik (one of the traditional village institutions in charge of the peace village judge set). Keuchik also asked us to provide id card as data or if there is an accident or a thing.

If you are using 4WD car to reach the waterfall from Siron Krueng, you first need to go through two rivers before entering the jungle. The park is ideal for visitors with 4WD vehicles who seek a forest experience on the doorstep of a major regional center. All vehicle access within the park is on rough, dry-weather-only 4WD roads. But at this time, we were rode a motorcycle to get the Air Terjun Seunerah. The motorcycle route was super fun and muddy with single-track. We (Dosi, Hashfi, Reza, Vido, Zulfan, Silvy, Ulfa, Fitri and Alul as a guide) named the event "BEM FT Unsyiah Explore Aceh".

There was absolutely no point in not embracing the mud! I had so much fun! 
After crossing the river many motorcycles were strike. A motorcycle that strike caused by machine filled with river water. Motorcycle must be immediately repaired so that it can operate again.

I took a bit of a tumble down an incredibly muddy, slippery switchback. After that my whole lest side was just brown with mud. Try riding in a wet shirt when it's cold and raining. 

During the GAM rebellion, the waterfall area was once a training ground for the rebels. Since the peace agreement in 2005 between the Free Aceh Movement and the Indonesian goverment, the area now has become a haven for adventure with nature lovers.

I heard the sound of the Air Terjun Seunerah before I saw it; the low rumble of water cascading over the edge of a cliff into the open air, before gravity caught up with it and it came tumbling down onto the rocky boulders below. The sound echoed off the high cliff walls of the canyon that surrounded it on all but one side, before being pushed out into the valley we were walking down

Turning the final bend of the river we entered the canyon we were greeted by the picturesque Air Terjun Seunerah. What we saw wasn't one continuous waterfall, but a series of small streams tumbling over the edge of the cliff and fell like rain, soaking everything in its path. The cliff face was covered in green lichen and other plants, while dozens of miniature rainbows were formed as the light refracted through the water.

After spending a frantic 20 minutes trying to keep my camera dry while taking pictures of the view, we continued up the canyon. We tried to stay as dry as possible by walking on the far right side of the canyon, but it did little good. After a short climb and feeling very wet, we reached the final waterfall. If anything this was even more impressive than the last waterfall. A river of water thundered down into an icy deep pool. It took me less than a minute to decide that the only thing to do was have a lunch and playing with the water.

One hour later, feeling tired, but refreshed, we got back to our last checkpoint at the all motorcycle were park. We must cross the last river before Magrib, but there was a trouble. Ulfa and Hashfi’s motorcycle got break down. The local residents which also going to Air Terjun Seunerah at next day help us to pick that two motorcycle up to the truck. We also invited to take a dinner with them, the menu was hot chicken curry cooked with traditional recipes.

We have just reach Banda Aceh at 12.00 PM and everyone needed much sleep. I was glad we had come here, because the Air Terjun Seunerah was a hundred times more interesting.
