When you go to kawah putih. Better you go to this lake first, since the lake is more high then the kawah putih. The air is fresh and you can take a ride with boat with fees idr 30k /pax or idr 350k for 1boat. 1 boat can take 15 people. Young kids also pay the ride. No more you... More

This place is located near Kawah Putih, so you can visit this place after exploring Kawah Putih. It would be a great idea to include both of these attactions in your itenerary as both of these attraction are located on the south of Bandung. The lake has a beautiful sorroundings as it is surrounded with pine trees and tea plantation.... More

I find the entrance fee rp135k for foreigner is expensive, and there's nothing much to see there. The scenery is ordinary, there are many stalls selling local delicacies and souvenir. I won't recommend this place to others.

Situ Patengan is located in Ciwideuy area. It is a natural lake, families love to picnic there. If you come in weekends or public holidays, it will be very challenging to get a parking spot for your car and even more challenging to get spot for your family to sit and relaxed. There are people renting plastic sheets you can... More

Patengan Lake is a famous but not-much-exposed attraction in the souther part of Bandung, West Java. This medium sized lake has all it takes to bring you inner peace together. There are small boats offering rides on the lake (which is a must if you are here) as you will be taken to a small island in the center where... More

We drove 2 hours to see Kawah Putih so we didn't want to waste those driving hours. Since Patengan Lake was nearby, we decided to check it out. The scenery was serene and would've been better if not for the gloomy weather. We took a boat ride around the lake anyway.
