Gede Pangrango National Park is located in two mountains - alongside the Mount Gede (2,958 MASL) and Mount Pangrango (3,019 MASL). The path to both peaks of the mountain separated in a saddle area at the Kandang Badak (2,400 MASL).

Gede Pangrango National Park also has craters, lakes, and marshes. Puncak Gede is the perfect open spot to see the Sunrise and Sunset — if not foggy. While the peak of Mount Pangrango is more enclosed but becomes a habitat of Javanese eagles.
