300 k for per person just to see the view?? I understand that you need to charge for the entrance but i really think that the amount they charge is absurd!

I like the surroundings.. cool fresh air. It will be hot in sunny day, we are lucky to came here in cloudy. The crater already dried. But you can go down a bit to get to crater domas for boiling egg.

People often think that Tangkuban Parahu was only Kawah Ratu, the most popular site to take picture. Kawah Domas is located before Kawah Ratu, lower area. It took about 45 minutes walking to reach Kawah Domas from the gate. Worthed enough ! you can boil eggs (selled on site), and had cozy slump-bodyscrub while soaking feet in hot-small-springs :)

I think, the view is fantastic, it nice to see the crater (only) with steps to climb (yeah i can get the same thing on other volcanic mountain). But here's the thing.... Entrance fee 30k for local and for foreigner is 10 times more??? (300k) WHAT A RIPOFF... it's totally unacceptable, too expensive for foreigners.... we need to show our... More

Ratu Crater is the Main Crater and located about 20km north of the City of Bandung. A beautiful place where you can take pictures of nature.

First of all, the ticket price is outrageous, and they multiply it by 5 for foreigners. So make sure you bring some money in your pocket. And also, be careful if you buy something (other than ready-to-eat food) there as they can't be trusted. I bought a pack of strawberries only to realize that half of the box were filled... More

We didn't mind being charged almost 10 times more than the locals. But at 200,000 IDR (weekdays) per person excluding the charge for the car, we were expecting more than a tri-fold pamphlet and a view of the crater. How about using that extra money to erect more signs with information about the crater / volcano around the attraction? Or... More
