img_20160820_122047Curious about a tree on a beach that is being famous at the Instagram makes me want to see the tree directly. Not because the tree is well known at the social media, but rather on the natural beauty that served in the beach. Pok Tunggal Tunggal that’s the name of the beach. A white sandy beach with typical karst rock and fortified by towering karst rock.

In addition, charming karst rock hill attract us, my husband and I too, to climb up the hill. We use ladder to go up the hill. Those ladders have been made. The hill is quite high and should be careful. Having reached the top of the hill, we could see the beach and sea widely. Wonderful! the right word to describe its beauty. The thing I like there is red and white flag fluttered. Feels proud to see our flag as proud to see Indonesian nature. Thanks to God for the natural beauty of Indonesia, may we always be able to keep it.
