Gua Tengkorak / Skull Cave

Gua Tengkorak

Gua Tengkorak

Ini bukan cerita si buta dari gua tengkorak. Tapi story jalan sama rekan rekan di Kideco, 2006 yang lalu, sudah cukup lama 9 tahun yang lalu, tapi berkat foto yang ada jadi ingin menambahkan sedikit catatan saat kesana.  Gua Tengkorak berlokasi Desa Kesungai, Kecamatan Batu Sopang, Kabupaten Paser, Kalimantan Timur.  Lokasi dekat jalan lintas Balikpapan – Banjarmasin.  Kalau dari arah Batu Kajang lokasi di sebelah kanan jalan, jalan masuknya sebelum Mesjid Jami Assalam Batu Sopang.

This is not the story about blind man from the Skull Cave. But the story journey with colleagues in Kideco, 2006, has been quite a long time 9 years ago  Because the photos, I wanted to add a little note while there.   Skull Cave is located in Kasungai village, Batu Sopang, Paser, East Kalimantan. The location near the causeway Balikpapan – Banjarmasin. If the direction from Batu Kajang location on the right road, the entrance before Jami Mosque Assalam Batu Sopang.

Gua Tengkorak terdapat di tengah tebing batugamping Formasi Berai, diketinggian lebih kurang 30 meter, dengan dimensi gua lebar 2 meter, tinggi 1,5 meter.  Batugamping Berai ini kalau di peta geologi biasa disingkat TOMB, atau Tersier Oligosen Miosen Berai.  Kalau mau lihat Gua Tengkorak tidak perlu panjat dinding atau loncat galah karena sudah ada tangga yang dibuat pemda setempat.

Stairs to Skull Cave

Stairs to Skull Cave

Skull Cave are in the middle of the limestone cliffs Berai Formation, at altitude of approximately 30meter, the cave dimensions 2 meter width and 1.5 meter height.  Limestone Berai Formation is that on geological maps commonly abbreviated TOMB, or Tertiary Oligocene Miocene Berai. If you want to see the Skull Cave does not have to climb a wall or pole jump because there stairs that made the local government.

Bermodal mobil tambang, kami bersilahturahmi sejenak dengan tengkorak di Gua Tengkorak.  Karena bertujuh, jadi bawaan happy saja walaupun bertemu dengan tengkorak.  Anggota yang berkunjung saat itu ada pa Basit saat ini sebagai expert di Qatar, pa Kemal sebagai bos property Jababeka, Robby sebagai geotech handal  di Grasbreg, pa Herry sebagai bos IT Kideco, Vaivim sebagai bos tambang di SumSel, Johanan sebagai think tank KPC  dan saya sendiri.

By mine cars, we visit briefly with skull in the Skull Cave.  Because not alone, we are seven, my feeling always happy, although it will meet the skull, should horror.  Member who visit at that time there mr Basit now as expert in Qatar, mr Kemal as property boss Jababeka, Robby as the best geotech in Grasbreg, mr Herry as IT boss Kideco, Vaivim as mine boss in SumSel , Johanan as think tank KPC and I as newbie travel blogger.

Tengkorak terlihat dibelakang pa Hery, gua tidak terlalu besar, tapi dari luar sudah terlihat ada tengkorak dan tulang belulang yang disusun rapih.  Tengkorak ini mayat nenek moyang warga sekitar gua.  Dahulu kala warga belum mengenal agama, sehingga mayat mayat tidak dikubur.

The skull is seen behind mr Herry, the cave is not too big, but there is already visible from the outside of the skull and bones were arranged neatly. This skull ancestors corpse people around the cave. Once upon a time people are not familiar with religion, so that the bodies not buried.

Foto foto terlampir menjadi bukti kami pernah bersama dan menginjakkan kaki ke Gua Tengkorak.  Selain gua tengkorak kami juga singgah di Gua Loyang, lokasi tidak terlalu jauh, lebih kurang 1km.  Gua Loyang cukup besar, karena kami tidak hobby caving jadi cukup foto saja di depannya.

The attached photo is proof we’ve shared and set foot into the Skull Cave. In addition to the Skull Cave we also stopped at the Loyang Cave, the location is not too far, approximately 1km. The mouth Loyang Cave  large enough, because we do not like caving so we just took photo together in front of the cave.

Setelah mengetahui lokasi gua tengkorak, saya pernah mengajak istri dan si bungsu ke lokasi ini.  Karena istri takut yang berbau horor, akhirnya kami hanya singgah di lokasi parkirannya saja.

After knowing the location of the Skull Cave, I ever took my wife and my little daughter to this location.  Because my wife was afraid that smelled of horror, finally we just stopped in the parking area only.

Ini cacatan singkat saya tentang Gua Tengkorak.

This is my a little note about the Skull Cave.
