Our rating:

Bangle is a rural village five kilometres inland from Bunutan nestled between towering hills.


Photo of Road to Bangle

It’s very rural with not a lot going on, but it is a pleasant scenic drive or ride here from the coast.

The road follows the river and you will come across farmers tending to crops such as corn, peanuts and singkong. It is a very beautiful ride -- best taken by hired bicycle or motorbike, though you can drive as far as Bangle pretty easily (the road gets pretty patchy towards the end).

Just past Bangle the road narrows dramatically and locals advise that cars shouldn’t be taken along here. They also advise that it is possible to reach Abang up on the ridge by motorbike, but the route looks inconceivable -- perhaps only for the experienced rider.
