The Citarum river seems to pass through Bandung. The Cikapundung River seems to empty into the Citarum, but this means Citarum starts somewhere else, right?

Citarum

I tried to follow it in a map. It seems to end in the sea and pass a national park (Cagar Alam Gunung Tangkuban Perahu) in between, but where does it actually start?

The Citarum River,

originates in Situ Cisanti located at the foot of Mount Wayang, which lies to the south of the city of Bandung, and travels to the north until it empties into the Java Sea.

Situ Cisanti is a artificial lake, about 5 to 10 ha in size, depending on which sources one reads. It is fed by seven springs: Citarum, Cikoleberes, Cikahuripan, Cihaniwung, Cisadane, Cikawudukan, and Cisanti springs.

The picture below shows the designated origin of the Citarum River.
