Too crowded on weekend

You may visit this place if you never been here before. The view is stunning, but not much to do here. Try to avoid visiting on weekend.

I'm conflicted to either recommend or not anyone to visit Tangkuban Perahu. If you have not seen volcano crater before, it would seem magnificent. But from my own experience, the view were beautiful especially when the fog slowly came in and cover the crater. But it would be more of an amazing experience if I were able to go down... More

Reading many negative feedbacks before visiting the attraction made me feel a bit nervous on the way to go there. Luckily it turned into a great experience at the end. The sellers are not agressive as described, they don't follow or insist if they are denied. Nowadays the color of Kawah Rutu is gray, not having the jade shade as... More

It was so crowded when we were there due to holiday. There are many path where you can walk and enjoy the surrounding view but it was not enjoyable when as crowded as when we were there. The sellers are aggressive, so try not to have eye contacts if you didn't plan to shop. Well I sometimes finally buy, not... More

Riding horse will be a plus experience, especially for the kids the would love it. Always bring raincoat with you. It almost everyday raining there, even only for... More

Tangkuban Perahu mountain is beautiful. Lots of posting here about the prices - my guide took good care of us and made sure we were not cheated so always good to have a good driver or guide. If you are taking a bigger bus, you will need to stop somewhere to switch to small vans. Luckily for us, we were... More

The scenery is breathtaking...the forest at the bottom till up to the crater on top...it would be nice if the tickets are not overpriced especially for foreigners....and please avoid going there during weekends or holiday seasons as you will be stuck in the massive slow crawling traffic jam

Thank greasemonkey89
