Indonesia, is known as a second home of the orchid species after Brazil.

Orchid Forest Cikole, is established to introduce all orchid species to Indonesian people and tourists and to protect them. There are more than 20.000 orchids from Indonesia, Philippines, Peru and Brazil.

Orchid Forest Cikole was opened on August 24th, 2018 and become quickly a very popular place in Lembang, which offers to the visitors fresh mountain air, rows of pine trees and of course a wide collection of orchids.

To increase the popularity of Cikole, the management of the forest offers some exciting activities, like trekking, shows and concerts in the amphiteatre and a special lighting system.

The place presents different views during the day and night. During the daylight hours visitors could see all colorfull orchides.

But during the night, the forest is a fairy tale.

The Garden of Lights illuminated with a romantic light decoration controlled by sensors create a admirable light show.

The rustic wooden bridge is one of the favorite places to take pictures, at night after the lights turn on.

The most fascinating view in the forest is the suspension bridge that floats among the pine trees with its warm light color neon illumination.

When night falls the bridge twists like a lighted-up snake into the forest.

Since the bridge is placed well above the ground, it looks like a flying road in the dark.

These illumination of Orchid Forest Cikole is a very good example of the impressive power of light.

Very simple wooden structures turn to a dreamy elements with light and the forest to a magical environment.

So sometimes no need too much technology but imagination…
