I am glad we chose this visit besides the tangkuban perahu which had a fare hike for tourist. this place takes you about 3 hours away from the city of bandung. due the poor road system it was a boring and tiring journey but all worth it. upon reaching the shuttle bus station which takes you up to the crater,which...

A breathtaking view of a sleeping volcano with a greenish lake. The cool air with those fog on the lake surface will make you capturing thousands of photo. LOL! But remember to check the weather report before depart, where else you might face heavy rain when you reach there. Visit the floating market when you left for hotel!

Hate the smell but like the unique environment. Not something you see everyday. Might not be a good idea to bring children... If you do just make sure you bring mask for your children and yourself.

We were there in the morning and had 1 hour to stand at the lake's edge to admire its beauty before we had to run for sheltor. The clouds came in and the rain fell in such continous torrents that the place we took sheltor in flooded!

Made the 2 hour trip to Kawah Putih. We started the journey at 8am. Fortunately it was a Friday and the traffic on the way to Kawah Putih was not that bad. However if you are making the trip on the weekends, be sure to have an early start to avoid the horrendous traffic of Bandung. Kawah Putih itself was... More

Actually, I went to this place a view years ago. But I can never forget the experience visiting this location, the place is very unique and the scenery is really fascinating... The lake will look greenish ... and the sans colour is white... Really breathtaking view... definitely you have to go here when you visit to Bandung... ;p

Not only a white lake full of sulfur, the scenery around the way was really breathtaking. Take a note that you must bring jacket,sweater, etc for the cold temperature. Theres a camp, playground, harvesting berries, and another outdoor activities on the foothills Make sure you try them all.

Before we went to bandung me and my friend went through this database for stories about potential drivers and sights we should visit. Many horror stories but also a lot of great tips! Thankyou guys for that! Thanks to my travel companion's choice of driver we had the perfect trip! We saw everything, from Dago to Kawa Putih, which you... More

Although the journey from bandung city took more than 2 hours, the view of the crater lake was worth it! Very scenic place to take lots of photos. There are people selling masks outside, but I personally felt that the smell was not as strong as some people warned. A must-visit if you visit bandung!
