Sagaria Camp Site in Bunut Sub-District, Pelalawan
Not many travelers have heard about a camp site named Sagaria, which is located in Bunut Sub-District. It is because the government has not considered it as an official tourist spot so they don’t put an effort to promote it. Despite the fact, some tourists have recognized its potential especially to be a spot for camping. It is not only available for the locals, but outsiders are also allowed to enjoy the activity as long as they get the permission from the villagers. Also, they need to make sure no official events are being conducted there like Jamboree which is done by boy scouts.
The fact is that Sagaria is a name of a hill in Bunut Sub-District. The campsite, though, becomes the most famous tourist attraction there. It features a plain land that comes with an average size. Still, the campsite can accommodate many people either those who want to camp or explore the area. Another fact is the location is surrounded by lush trees and bushes, so people can conduct a small exploration there. Sometimes, the locals use the site to conduct an event apart from camping and jamboree, which are local festivals and performances. It is rare to see those attractions these days, though.
