Haven't been to many volcanos so this was interesting. Not much volcanic activity but it was nice to walk around the volcano rim. You can actually walk a fair way around, just not down into the crater without a guide. A bit expensive at $200,000 plus about $100,000 for transport up the mountain and back.

The weather was not that good when we visited the site. It was tad rainy but the view didn't disappoint. I would say that it lost a bit of its ecological inclination as it has become extremely touristy - a long alley of souvenir shops, ambulant vendors, flocks of people and countless vehicles. On the other hand, we support a... More

Crowded and really nothing much to see. The vendors were very persistent and a nuisance. Crowded with tourists

Located in Lembang north of Bandung. Quite a winding roads going up to the mountain. Entrance fee for people and car is applicable. The crater it self has dried up compared to kawah putih (white crater) in mount Patuha south of Bandung. The place can be overcrowded on weekend or public holiday. Many stalls selling foods, snacks, toys, traditional handicrafts... More

A cool place to see a volcano with all its splendor. Visit this place in the middle of the year as it is the coolest and the surroundings is kept to its natural best without any modern buildings and amenities. Truly reflecting the natural beauty of a volcano. Along the way up, you can see many traditional handicrafts on sale... More

If you are not a local, this place is not woth the money they ask. You have much better volcanoes in the country so skip this one. Tourists pay 200.000 (300.000 in weekends) while locals pay 20.000 and 30.000. We are willing to pay a bit more, but this is just abusive.

This was my third visit to the place. I am upset to see the commercialization of the place. The entrance fee at the main gate is 30k for locals and kitas holders and 300,000 for tourists...that is crazy high and not worth. We have a colleague who had forgotten their kitas and were asked to pay 300,000. Some how we... More

Drive up to the top to get a great areal view of the volcano which last erupted in 2013. There are multiple entrance fees. To walk down to the crater you need to pay again IDR 300,000 for the guide and you will have 4 addons vendors trying to sell you things through out your trek. Its nice at the... More

First time visiting a volcano crater and this was amazing! It took awhile to get up there by car due to the jams but the wait was worth it! The temperature was around 18-20 degrees so a jacket is required if you cannot stand feeling chilly. There is another crater behind this one but it would take around 15-30 mins... More

This place is nice to learn about the evidence of active volcano activity. It was easy to reach and perfect for family trip. Be aware that the management put a wide different price for local and foreign tourist!
