To get to the top we needed to change from a big bus (which we came in) to smaller buses which could meander up the steep climb. The view from the top is scenic during clear weather though on your way up you will notice the pungent smell of sulphur in the air. There were lots of hawkers and they... More

Entrance IDR 200k/pax (Babies enter for free) + IDR25k/car (weekday) to get to the top of the main crater, Kawah Ratu. You'll get to see, on a clear day, which we were blessed with that morning we visited (Thank God, coz that's prolly the only highlight of the trip) a panaromic view of Subang and Bandung, and..... a volcano crater....

The difference of entrance fees for foreigners and locals is 5-folds. The people selling souvenirs are very annoying and pestering. They are selling them at exorbitant prices.

Very expensive for entry ticket just for foreigner. Nice place to visit but you will be bothered by a lot of hawkers. You can't enjoy the scenery in peace. My advice, if you are in Bandung and want to visit a volcano go to Kawah Putih (white crater), it is cheaper and has much more stunning scenery.

Let me start with saying that we were overwhelmed to see a volcano for the first time! The view however was spoiled by the fog so that influenced our experience. You can walk around the crater. Didn't felt like we were harrased by the guides or sellers at all. It was actually even very quiet. Nice place to visit when... More

The bad experience started right at the entrance. I travelled there with my fiancee (who has Indonesian citizenship) and the income price was 20k rp for her and 200k rp for me. I do understand charging a bit more for foreign tourists but 10 times the normal price?!! Unfortunately this happens more often in Indonesia, Borobodur and Prambanan are a... More

When we got here the fog just cleared so we managed to get a few snaps before the fog starts to cloud the view. Lots of touting from the streets sellers trying to push you to buy their souvenirs and such. Paid an exorbitant amount for the entry fee of 300, 000 rupiah per pax cause we were tourist and... More

The cons. 1) Quite pricey for Malaysian. RM60 or 300 IDR per head. 2) The sulfur smell can be quite overwhelming. Go early in the morning or late afternoon. Our driver told us, if the sun is hot, the smell can be quite strong. 3) There will always some guy wanted to sell gifts to you. If not interested, just... More
