First time for me to be on an active volcano, as far as I remember, or may be not. This one was impressive, thank god during the week not so busy, quite cold up there. We went to a smaller crater at the side, too, where you could see actually the boiling hot water, boil an egg in it and... More

I always told my friend who visited Bandung to visit the Tangkuban Perahu. Tangkuban Perahu became one of the icons of the city of Bandung. It was an exciting experience if we had to climb to the top of craters on the mountain. We can already smell the sulfur. So it is suitable to bring your friends and family to... More

Just amazing! We could see the sulphur fumes in the air but the weather was very cold. Very well maintained spot- worth visiting.It is a live volcano. There are lot of sellers selling local stuff and we purchased many items here.

I have been several times at the Tangkuban Perahu. Today it has become a crowded spot, though well organised to avoid chaos.

I'm so surprising for the price of the entrance ticket. I personally think it was so expensive. Rp 75,000 per person and Rp15,000 per car. The Kawah Ratu not so amaze as I expected. The only thing I like is the cool breeze.:)

miss the moment and experience in tangkuban perahu.nice mountain in asia.I've seen better volcanoes. The side vent with the boiling water was quite cool. Be careful to inform yourself how much you have to pay because the top crater, the side vent and the hot springs further away all had a seperate entry charge or it was required to have... More

If you're from a country without volcanoes, this is a definite must see. Don't forget to bring warm clothes and face mask though!
