Buyung Rock (Batu Buyung) is located at the end of the south of Belitung Island. It is 110 kilometers from Tanjung Pandan and it can be reached by car or motorcycle. It is one of the tourist attractions that most tourists like to visit.

Besides the dangerous twist, Genting Apit is well known for its creepy atmosphere. It isn’t easy to recall the number of car accidents ever happened at this location.
