I had a terrible time finding information about this site online before going, so here is everything I found when I arrived: There are three craters in this park, you can walk to two of them along paths that are lined with small shops with crafts and snacks (check out the Batik wood only grown on that volcano!). The sulfur... More

If you want to know about the story, you can read a well known Indonesian folklore called Sangkuriang. The crater is believed as a ship that kicked out by Sangkuriang when he got angry. This is a place that you should... More

We go there with family by own car. The weather is good. very cool here. The Entrance is IDR 20K / person, and IDR 25 K / Car. My family think there is another place more interesting than this place. So we here just 30 minutes. Too many car and person.

As the country of volcanoes, the ring of fire, Tangkuban Perahu is one of the still active volcanoes. Last erupted on 2013, the volcano is still safe to visit. The shape of the mountain is like a turned upside down ship-relating to a folklore. It has 4 crater and you can see steam coming out of it, a sign of... More

I was very impressed with the beauty of this mountain & this is one of the active volcano in Bandung! The things that sold in the market was pretty cheap if we're to compare with floating market, but you have to try your very best in bargaining the price.

This trip takes a full day with an early start from Jakarta to avoid the traffic. We hired a Grabcar for the day which was cheaper than the regular tours and gave us flexibility. We went right up to the Ratu Crater, so no walking, and it was spectacular with plenty of photo opportunities. There are other attractions and activities... More

This visit could be a good one... But the street salers were very harsh and overwhelming. It's a long trip from our hotel. We ate grilled corns, bought photos, bought some fruits, ride horses and bought some souvenirs. We Always try to support local business... Whish it can be more fairly priced, not pushy and more organized. The street salers... More

This place is a popular destination for tourist. Tangkuban Perahu is an active volcano, with outstanding scenery. There are many souvenir seller who actually very friendly and will offer to help you take picture. But after that they will try to sell key chain, bracelet, toys, or whatever item they have which is quite overpriced. Just say no to them... More
