Worth a peak
Published/Last edited or updated: 17th April, 2016
The graves are understated, and while they are worth a quick peek, the real attraction here is the view over Bima. You can see the new market to your left, and right across to Bima port to your right. Beyond the water is a small village that was described to us as being home to the original inhabitants of Bima.
This is the easiest to reach viewpoint in Bima, and while the energetic could walk here, as it isn’t really signposted you may want to get an ojek up to the summit, and have them wait while you have a wander -- tell them you want to go to Gunung Raja. Needless to say, the gardening crew who was on station when we rolled in were pretty gobsmacked to see us.
