Trip to Pulau Weh 6 - 11 November 2007

Post Number:#1  Postby mnim » Thu Oct 11, 2007 3:43 pm

My buddy and I are planning for a trip to Pulau Weh, Banda Acheh from 6 - 11 November 2007. Estimated damage currently is RM 2330, not inclusive flight ticket. AirAsia offeing RIGHT NOW RM 9.90 per way. Pejam mata sebelah (closed one eye) and bought my tickets alrdy. Total came up to about RM 200 return. Total cost may vary depending on the number of divers on the trip. My buddy is still negotiating with the resorts there on the price structure and those that are interested my want to secure their flight tickets first.

Personally I've not dived there before but heard lost about it tho. It's where the Andaman Sea meets the Indian Ocean and according to AirAsia's promo, "An Unexplored Haven". So, those looking for a bit of adventure, this could just be the right trip for you coz I know it's definitely gonna be mine!  ;)

Some writeup from the govt page ( in bahasa indonesia )

"Wilayah administrasi Kota Sabang, secara geografis, terletak di antara 95° 13' 02" dan 95° 22' 36" Bujur Timur, dan antara 05° 46' 28" dan 05° 54' 28" Lintang Utara. Dari segi geografis Indonesia, wilayah Kota Sabang merupakan wilayah administratif paling barat, dan berbatasan langsung dengan negara tetangga yaitu Malaysia, Thailand dan India.

Wilayah Kota Sabang dikelilingi oleh Selat Malaka di Utara, Samudera Hindia di Selatan, Selat Malaka di Timur dan Samudera Hindia di Barat.

Kota Sabang terdiri atas 5 (lima) buah pulau yaitu Pulau Weh (121 km2), Pulau Rubiah (0,357 km2), Pulau Seulako (0,055 km2), Pulau Klah (0,186 km2), dan Pulau Rondo (0,650 km2). Di Pulau Weh terdapat sebuah danau air tawar bernama Aneuk Laot.

Keadaan topografi Kota Sabang pada umumnya bergelombang, berbukit-bukit sedang sampai curam dan di sepanjang pantai penuh dengan batu-batuan. Topografis wilayah secara umum terbagi menjadi 3% dataran rendah, 10% dataran bergelombang, 35% berbukit, dan 52% berbukit sampai bergunung.

Pulau Weh merupakan sebuah pulau vulkanik, sebuah pulau atol (pulau karang) yang proses terjadinya mengalami pengangkatan dari permukaan laut. Proses terjadinya dalam tiga tahapan, terbukti dari adanya tiga teras yang terletak pada ketinggian yang berbeda.

Umumnya Pulau Weh terdiri atas dua jenis batuan, yaitu tuf marina dan batuan inti. Tuf marina dijumpai hampir sepanjang pantai sampai pada ketinggian 40 sampai 50 meter. Lapisan tuf yang terlebar didapat di sekitar kota Sabang, di bagian pantai berlapis sempit. Batuan sempit adalah batuan vulkanik yang bersifat andesitik.

Berdasarkan wilayah, tampak bahwa wilayah Barat pulau Weh terdapat topografi paling berat. Mulai dari Sarong Kris sebagai puncak tertinggi di sebelah Timur, terdapat tiga barisan punggung yang berjolak menuju ke Barat Laut, sehingga lembah-lembah yang ada di antara punggung itu sempit.

Topografi di sebelah Timur terdapat sebuah pegunungan yang arahnya dari Utara ke Selatan yang memisahkan Pulau Weh Timur dengan bagian lainnya. Gunung Leumo Mate merupakan puncak yang tertinggi. Di bagian ini terdapat lapisan tuf marina yang lebih besar. Di antara bagian Barat dan Timur terdapat aliran dua buah sungai, yaitu Sungai Pria Laot dan Sungai Raya. Daerah ini merupakan sebuah slenk dari sebuah fleksun (patokan yang tidak sempurna).

Kondisi geologis wilayah ini terdiri dari 70% batuan vulkanis (andesite), 27% batuan sedimen (line stone dan sand stone), dan 3% endapan aluvial (recent deposit).

Pulau Weh mengalami dua musim, yaitu musim hujan dan musim kemarau. Musim hujan lazimnya jatuh pada bulan September sampai Pebruari. Musim kemarau pada bulan Maret hingga bulan Agustus. Menurut hasil pengukuran Stasiun Meteorologi Sabang, curah hujan yang tercatat rata-rata 1.745 - 2.232 mm/tahun, dengan angka terendah pada bulan Maret sebesar 18 mm dan angka tertinggi pada bulan September sebesar 276 mm. Pada bulan September dan Oktober terjadi peralihan dari musim kemarau ke musim penghujan."

Ayam Tangkap!!!  :hippy2:

Acehnese Dishes

Spicy Acehnese food has had a strong influence from India and can be distinguished from the famous Padang dishes as the latter use much more coconut milk in their preparation. 'Ayam tangkap' chicken dish is a must when you dine at Acehnese restaurants such as Aceh Rayeuk in Lueng Bata, Banda Aceh. Acehnese spicy noodles (crab noodle deliciously cooked at Mie Razali, Peunayong) is also worth trying.

Rumah Makan Khas Aceh Rayeuk

Well known for its Acehnese cuisine with 'Ayam Tangkap' as its signature. Literally translated, ayam tangkap means ˜a chicken being caught", which is obvious because otherwise the chicken would not be cooked and devoured. The complete story itself looks like the chicken being caught, chopped and fried with lots of bay leaves and spices that in the end the chicken tastes too good to miss. There are several restaurants in Banda Aceh that serve the meal. Try Rumah Makan Khas Aceh Rayeuk, in Lueng Bhata area, on Jalan Medan-Banda Aceh, 3.5 km to the airport from Banda Aceh. One meal of fried chicken costs Rp. 50,000, a bit expensive by local standards, but worth the taste. You can also treat yourself for a bowl of gule kambing (lamb curry), cooked in a huge pot in front of the restaurant. The lamb cooked in coconut milk full of spices for hours served with steamy rice will definitely spice up your dinner.

Address :Jalan Medan - Banda Aceh, Lueng Bata. Banda Aceh


Pulau Weh Restaurant Guide
Gapang Beach
On Gapang beach, there are at least four restaurants serving simple food of fried rice, fried noodles, sandwiches and pancakes. The restaurants open early in the morning till late in the evening. The tables are set on the beach facing the calm water and Sabang on the other tip of Pulau Weh. Don’t be surprised if locals usually take the freedom to join your table and start up a conversation. Just relax and enjoy your meal. The restaurant in the centre of Gapang beach is Zero Café. Breakfast here costs Rp. 25,000 - 40,000. Their fruit salad and sandwiches are worth trying.
Perdagangan Street in Sabang
Sabang offers plenty of small restaurants offering various kinds of menu from the Acehnese gulai kambing, Sumatran dishes, to seafood and Chinese food. Most of the restaurants are on Jalan Perdagangan. For coffee and light meals, try Aneka Ria, which serves grilled toasts with home-made jams and steamy black coffee. The restaurant opens from early morning to about 9pm. You can also order tasty fried rice or noodles from a seller in front of the restaurant.
Iboih Beach
Further north-west from Gapang beach, Iboih offers more a secluded corner, facing the famous Rubiah Island. On Iboih beach, there are a few small restaurants serving standard nasi campur (a plate of rice and a few side dishes), fried rice and noodles. Try Chill Out Lounge or Warung Hanum food stall for simpler dishes.

The Immigration Department here conducts "tangkap ayam" sessions at massage parlours and KTV joints too.  :P

Anyway, the Gule Kambing (Gulai Kambing) sounds nice. But my doctor has forbidden me from taking lamb, goat, mutton, and goateed-men and women.  Not good for my health.
