(by Fryzen Ichen) The Swamp Lake, or mostly known as Rawa Pening (rawa:swamp, pening:clear) is located in Ambarawa (Semarang Regency), Central Java-Indonesia. It is called Rawa pening because the water is clear. it’s a little bit different from swamps in general. This 2.670 hectare lake is surrounded by three mountains. Mount.Merbabu, Mount.Telomoyo, and Mount.Ungaran. So, you can imagine the beautiful view. The natives who live by the lake making living by catching fish from the lake and cultivating water hyacinth. Most people go there early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise, or in the afternoon for the beautiful sunset.
