So this is my first time visiting here with a clear head and thinking mind because the last time i'm here was when i was a kid and i couldn't remember much, and here's what i could tell you though. I have a bad experience coming here and i'm never ever coming back (if it's a conscious decision). I went... More

It's a bit messy cause the price were a bit pricy even for the local tourist. But still worth the view.

If u never been to any site like this, then u will appreciate Kawah Putih. Pro - beautiful, nice cameraman option (pay and print on the spot) Cons - cant stay too long because of the sulphur. If you have any health issue, suggest to go there less than 15minutes.

The view was decent. A good spot for those who have not seen a crater before. The sulphur smell was bearable, although our throats started to itch 20 minutes later. The attraction is supposed to be near the city but due to the amount of traffic, it took us 2.5 hours to reach the destination. And we spent less than... More

This place has a beautifull and amazing scenic. The crater is big. It was crowded when we were there. We only spend about 10 minuites there. Use your mask to avoid the smell. I suggest you to go there before 10 am so you can enjoy the view.

My friends and i stayed there only for a short time, like probably 20-30 min to take some photos. I think it is worth going, it is beautiful. Car ride from bandung city to this place is a good 2 hours drive though.

It a signature for first timer should visit this place. Coming from tropical country without any volcanos, it's a great chance to witness it although it is no more active. Another attraction will be the beautiful scenery for photo lover.

It's a volcanic site where you have to smell a sulfuric kinda thing. There were face mask sell at the entrance of the crater. It is beautiful place and you can have a picture of the day here. The entrance fee is 50,000 rupiah/ person and if you going with a car, it will cost you 150,000 rupiah / car.... More

As explained before, the 40 kilometers from Bandung may take easily 3 hours. Entry as per February 2017: 20K for locals, 50K for tourists and 150K for the car, if you take it to the top. The lake is really white and as smelly as the feet of the guy next to me during my flight here. That's how volcanos... More
