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

It was quite a pleasant walk but be careful of "tourist trap price". They charge 20k for locals for entry fee but 200k for foreigners. 150k for locals for a guide but 300k or more for foreigners. We had beautiful pics taken by our tour guide but not worth paying 300k for.

Blatant Discrimination. I travelled with my indonesian friend on her motor bike, the entry price for her was aud $2 the price for me was aud $20. When my friend questioned why the enormous difference in price, the attendant replied because I am a foreigner and foreigners have a lot of money. Had I understood the conversation I wouldn't have...

The scenery was beautiful but we were underwhelmed and did not find it worth the price we paid which was Rp300,000 per pax plus Rp150,000 for the use of our own car to go up. Perhaps the fact that there were no signs explaining what we were seeing and the presence of so many hawkers did not add to the... More
