Geographically, Purwakarta’s position is strategic because it is surrounded by a number of districts, namely Karawang, Subang, West Bandung and Cianjur Regencies.
Purwakarta is also the meeting point for 3 main traffic corridors, namely Purwakarta – Bandung, Purwakarta – Jakarta and Purwakarta – Cirebon. That is why this district was used as a place for the Residency of West Java.
Apart from being strategic, this district is also gifted with nature with extraordinary charm, so that apart from having a number of cultural and historical attractions, Purwakarta also has quite a number of natural attractions.
Such as mountain tours, caves, waterfalls, hot springs and lakes, both natural and artificial lakes (reservoirs / dams).
Geographical potential and natural beauty is what continues to be developed by working on strategic places that are still not fully managed.
This is mainly in rural areas that still stretch across a number of sub-districts, such as Pondoksalam, Pasawahan to Wanayasa.
One of the new tourist objects is the Giri Tirta Kahuripan resort located in Pasawahan District.
Even though it is still in its infancy, this tourist attraction immediately attracted the attention of the public because it has its own charm that is not found in other tourist spots.
The main attraction of this resort is the swimming pool which is located on a hill so it is called the Skypool.
Those who visit this resort, not only want to swim, but also enjoy the beauty of nature from above, hunt for photo spots and a myriad of other interesting activities.
With these various advantages, it is no exaggeration for Giri Tirta Kahuripan to carry the tagline “Find The Difference”.
It is also not unusual, if in a relatively short time, this resort is flooded with tourists and has become one of the tourism icons in Purwakarta Regency.
Carrying the concept of agro-tourism, Resort Giri Tirta Kahuripan was built with a building form that combines Javanese elements with modern elements so that it looks elegant and charming.
Its location, which is about 20 km from the center of Purwakarta, makes it quite easy to reach as well as away from the hustle and bustle of the city, so that the atmosphere around feels calm and comfortable.
The comfortable atmosphere becomes even more pronounced because this place is above an altitude of 500 meters above sea level which makes the air feel cool.
This tourist attraction occupies an area of 26 hectares and stands on a hill that makes the air around it feel cold and fresh and is often shrouded in fog.
On this vast land, a number of shelter buildings, aka inns and various tourist facilities, were erected.
The lodging building is in the form of 5 villas measuring 10 x 10 meters2, 6 units of cottages measuring 8 x 8 meters2, 13 wooden houses, 2 barracks, meeting rooms, restaurant, swimming pool, camping ground, futsal court, fruit garden, mini zoo, outbound area, playground and a number of other facilities.
Administratively, this tourist destination that carries the “Find The Difference” platform is on Jalan Raya Wanayasa, RT / RW: 13/04, Taringgul Tonggoh Village, Wanayasa District, Purwakarta Regency, West Java Province, 41174.
To go to tourist sites, visitors from Jakarta do not need to make a plan or open a google map, because it is very easy to reach, either using public transportation or private vehicles with very good road access.
For those who use private vehicles, the route taken can pass the Cipularang Toll Road and exit at the Jatiluhur Toll Road.
Turn the vehicle towards Pasar Rebo and continue the journey for 20 km to Wanayasa. In this sub-district city, you can find a small road with directions that lead to the location of Giri Tirta Kahuripan.
Tourists who come by using public transportation can take advantage of intercity buses and get off at Jatiluhur, to be precise near Rumah Makan Ibu Haji Ciganea or Rumah Makan Sambel Hejo.
Get off the bus, continue the journey by taking public transportation number 04 to Pasar Rebo at a rate of Rp. 5,000.
At Pasar Rebo you have to change to the yellow angkot which is the only one that goes to Wanayasa.
In Wanayasa, you have to use an ojek service to get to the destination, because there are no angkots that go to the resort area. Ojek rates are quite cheap, only Rp. 15,000.
For tourists who have no plans to stay in the resort area because they only want to enjoy the natural beauty and swim in the skypool.
Make sure your visiting hours are between 08.00 – 17.00, because that’s when this tourist spot is open to tourists who are not resort guests.
It is not an exaggeration if this tourist spot carries the tagline “Find The Difference”, because what is presented at Giri Tirta Kahuripan is indeed different from other tourist attractions, at least tourist attractions in Purwakarta Regency.

In the mini zoo area, there are several types of animals that are placed in cages that are far apart from one cage to another.
Some of the animals that are collected from this tourist spot include deer, monkeys, gibbons, several types of birds such as peacocks and older brothers and pools containing crocodiles, arapaima fish and several types of freshwater fish.

Nature lovers can take advantage of the outbound area and camping ground, including a 100 meter long suspension bridge that sways as it passes.
It’s just that, for the outbound area, the facilities seem very simple and have not been fully worked out as in the outbound area in general.
Another exciting activity is playing futsal on a futsal field that has been provided and enjoying a number of water rides such as water bikes or goose bikes in a large pool.
For visitors who come with children, there is a play ground area with various types of games for children and water slides that will make the children feel at home to linger in this resort area.
Among the many rides and facilities at Giri Tirta Kahuripan, one that should not be missed because it has become an icon of this tourist spot is a swimming pool called the Sky Pool.
It is called Skypool because its location is above a height, so that when swimming in this pool it feels like swimming in a place close to the sky.
The depth of the pool in Skypool Giri Tirta Kahuripan varies from 60 cm, 120 cm to 230 cm.
To separate and distinguish the height of the pool, a fence and net are installed at the bottom of the pond. The same is done for the children’s pool, so that even children can play safely in the pool.
With a location that is above the height and the arrangement of the pool that is so beautiful, making Skypool and the area around it offer an instagramable view when used as a photo background.
That’s why many young people come to Giri Tirta Kahuripan with the aim of being able to take selfies.
