    I have been many time to Muara Angke in the last two years, and always managed to get in, either because nobody was there or by paying 20/25,000 rupias to the person available. I tried to go again a couple of days ago. The walkway has been repaired, at least till where I had the chance to walk (about two hundred meters from the entrance). Unfortunately I was told to leave, even if I offered to pay the ticket. I do not speak Bahasa, but I think the guard in charge indicated the need to obtain the ticket at the Forestry Dept. What looks like a ticket boot has been built close to the main road, so I hope that indeed they will start selling tickets there. Can anybody let me know please where is the Forestry Dept office in Jakarta, to get tickets for the time being. And can anybody share the information once tickets will be available at the reserve. Many thanks in advance. Enrico

    It seems that Muare Angke has reopened and ticket prices have been established at a hefty 250.000 Rp for foreigners. However it is still not possible to formally arrange ticket at the entrance (visit to Forestry Office required). Park rangers offered me to pay the fee at the entrance, but refused to provide a receipt. I declined as I did not want my conttribution to end in the wrong pockets.

    Raners indicated that formal ticket purchase at the entrance might be possible 1-2 months froom now. Unfortunately missed the coucal….

      This is the place to get a formal permission letter:
      Address: No. 9, Balai Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam, Jl. Salemba Raya, Senen, Kota Jakarta Pusat, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta
      Phone:(021) 3908771
      In the past I managed to do so, but the last 2 years they have made it impossible, with countless requirements. It is a waste of time dealing with them there.
      The staff will normally take IDR 50k and let you in.

    I visited Muara Angke from 6.45am to 9am on the 17th of July 2017.
    At 6.45am the main entrance didn’t look open.
    I birded the riverside till 7.45am nearly back to the entrance by walking down right beside the river from the bridge. Didn’t see the coucal, but I should have come an hour earlier to be there at dawn.

    I then went to the main entrance. As best I could gather a permit is still needed, but can be paid for at the entrance, but I am not sure of this since I didn’t try to get the permit. The cost of 250000 idr was too much since I thought (incorrectly) that I would be able to see in from outside the reserve.
    I walked the edge of the reserve to near the shoreline.
    I never found anywhere that gave good views into the reserve and basically couldn’t see in except at a couple of spots.
    I am pretty sure the foot trail indicated on the map no longer exists. Seemed completely overgrown where I tried to find it.
    The boardwalk at the beach had a security guard who, as far as I could tell (given that I can’t speak Indonesian at all), wanted a permit from the main entrance for me to use the boardwalk. It didn’t seem to be possible to get a permit at the beach boardwalk.

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for sharing with us. You have to make the permit first if you want go there and today you can’t just enter to that place and it can’t get permit in that place. You have go to the the office in Salemba, Jakarta (http://bksdadki.com/page/perizinan).

    I have visited the Coucal stake out on the 22 july and it was walking along the bank of the river about 20 metres away within some planted banana trees just before sunrise at 5.45am. Didn’t stay longer as I wanted to leave for Pulau Rambut but the gate for the boardwalk was locked around 6.30am!
