The volcano is beatiful. As shared by other traveller, there are many businessman there. Ya, at times they are pushy. However, just ignore them. Other than taking many photos there, we bought some peanuts. Overall i would say, this place is a must come place just that u need to bare with those *businessman*

The volcano crater is pretty breathtaking for someone like me who has never seen one It is quite a huge area but not very elderly friendly or disabled friendly. Be aware also of touts and men who will follow you around. If you don't want them, tell them firmly but nicely.

Hired a licensed tourist guide at the volcano site (tourist authority) and be made known the price is for 1 hour. The guide hid from us the entire required journey to tour around the crater. We had asked countless... More

Mount Tangkuban Prahu is an ideal location to demonstrate to the children about the figure of a real volcano ... without the hassle of walking and hiking with a backpack on his back, we can bring children with a vehicle and a view of the extraordinary

Anyone visiting this place must remember that there are two main kawahs (craters) on tangkuban perahu that people usually visit, which you have to pay 75K per person at entrance. Kawah ratu is the big one at the top which is where you see most people take pictures of. You can't go down into kawah ratu but you can have... More

Do to seismic activity, this place was closed when I was in Bandung circa Oct 2013. The guide from my guest house instead took me to the sulfur smelling volcanic lake. I was also told Tangkuban Perahu is expensive and the traders there can be really annoying. Otherwise, its not too far from the city...
