“Try Ontang Anting, Cheaper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Try to use the ontang anting (mini bus) because you have to pay if bring your own car to the top parking lot, and it's so expensive. You just need to pay IDR 13,000 for the ontang anting, but you need to wait until the ontang anting is full.

“Kawah Putih don't do it in Raining season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Kawah putih or white crater located in south Bandung West Java Indonesia, about 70 km from Bandung center city, but to get there you must ready for heavy traffic after toll way gate KOPO, from this gate till SOREANG.
Kawah putih in raining season is very bad weather, if you interest for this spot, please visit them after the end of February or before December, and you will get great view in white crater area, not at all after Kawah putih gate just drive about 5 minute perfect view on tea plantation till Situ Patengan lake. Actually if you drive continue to the south then you will get another spot again, that is South Bandung or South Java Island. A road to south Java is fair.
NOTE :
DO NOT VISIT THIS AREA IN RAINING SEASON.!!!!

I came here around August, me with 8 friends really love it to come here, we take many photos in here, it's really good experience for us to come here, and from park area we need to take ontang anting and really cool when we ride it.

“nice place to visit in Bandung”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

good view, nice place as your background picture, bring your jacket , and better rent a car to go there , avoid the peak holiday season for less traffic, go to the rancabali tea plantation, situpatengan lake, ranca upas, ciwidey, ciwalini , cimangu while you re there, so explore the south Bandung , some the driver are lazy to show you other places arround since no shopping area for their side income :), try the bandrek ginger si Abah, and many traditional foods are delicious.
