- The area of Purwakarta attracts day-trippers and tourists wanting to take advantage of its water sport and recreational facilities and explore its arts scene. The Jatiluhur Dam and Reservoir, an 80-hectare man-made lake ten minutes from the city center, is an ideal getaway for sightseeing, picnicking and water sports. The 600-meter Mount Parang just outside Cihuni Village provides a perfect rock-climbing terrain. Plered, a village known as the Ceramics Center, offers insight into traditional clay-molding methods. In the town center, visitors sometimes get to enjoy free ethnic dances performed in open spaces.
