We were given instructions by our hostel to get to the volcano by the public buses, however it was rush hour traffic and everyone we seemed to speak too didn't speak a word of English so we ended up taking a taxi. We were told we would probably spend 60,000-80,000 Rps for the buses, but we only ended up spending... More

We visited the Tangkuban Perahu Volcanos in early Feb 2015. We visited in early afternoon. The weather began coming in as we drove up the mountain. By the time we reached the entrance to the park, there was light rain and some fog. Interestingly, the fee to enter the park was 10x the local rate for Foreign tourists!! Our hosts... More

We came by this place for a visit as part of our Bandung tour and it was about an hour's drive from our hotel. Coming here is not as "easy" task, as the vehicle will need to ply on windy hilly roads up the mountain and with the road's condition being poor and lack of maintenance (many potholes) that cause...

Have been here the first time in 2010. Me and my dad had a nice hike down, which had lovely views, but the experience with the people over there where not nice. First we had to pay much to enter (later more about that) and then when we wanted to go down we had to pay again some sort of... More

It's chilly in the morning, but thankfully we've had fun after the sun appeared. Great time with family, my parents enjoyed the view!

Great view, good for taking photos. Watch out for those people that seem like they want to help take photos for you as they may ask for money after. All the things that are sold there are overpriced, you can get the same things in Bandung City.

Close to Bandung city, the trip up to Tangkuban Perahu is short. Kawah Putih is beautiful, but can only be appreciated at a minimum because of pesky guides. Apparently to hike from Kawak Putih to Kawah Domas, you must be accompanied by a guide, and the cost of the guide varies depending on your nationality (!!!!). I got told it... More

I loved the hike, the views and the fact it's not nearly as demanding as other volcanos I've climbed. This one you literally drive up and you're there. We did hike and walk for hours, though. So it can be a work out if you want to see it all. The lower lake bottom has the hot springs and geysers,... More
