A must for people travelling to Bandung. A really nice place to see craters up closed. The cold temperature definitely enjoyable. But recent hike on the entrance fees are just ridiculous. IDR300k/pax on weekend is simply unjust!

Not only expensive but also overcrowded on weekends with peddlers. We felt cheated, after paying so expensively for the entrance, with the weather (rain often) we had to move off fast.

It is very beautiful! But if you are planning to see the active volcano, you have to climb down to another crater. But, there will be like 5 or more people following you down. They will help you and assisting you with anything. This is for free. But when you reach at the crater, they will sell you stuff. You... More

Should add to travel here. Only here you can feel all about the impact of the volcano. Just must beware with seller here. Most important buy at shop.

The view is the only thing i would highlight from this place. It worth a visit if you are near Lembang or Bandung and you want to spend half a day in route, driving in fresh air, stopping by to eat good local food and then going to the top of Tangkuban Perahu. If you go with friends, family or... More

Worth the visit. If you go to Bandung and miss to visit the Tangkuban Perahu, then it's a waste. It is beautiful and still active, amazing view and very breathtaking. However, too many sellers with local souvenirs can be very annoying.

Your visit to Tangkuban will be greeted by with dozen of locals who want to sell their products.. they will not let you go until you buy their products and they are selling much more expensive than Pasar Baru..So you cannot enjoy the view that much because get distracted with these sellers.Plus if you are not indonesian you have to...

I have no problem with dual pricing when locals and foreigers pay a different rate BUT this place really pushes things to far. You pay an entry fee at the park gate of USD5 per person if a local and USSD25 per person if a foreigner... again thats OK. That gets you to the main crater which is large and... More

Have to walk quite a distance to reach the hot water soak. Upon reaching, well rewarded by soaking your tired leg in the hot water. But to go back again, oh nooo... But, you can always pay the guy on motorcycle to drive you back. Hope there is shorter access in the future.
