Beautiful bluish scenery reflected from the crater. The colour depends on the acidity of the water.But sometime the sulfur smell is quite dense so you have to wear mask.

This is a unique crater lake, located south of Ciwidey, 55 kms from Bandung city. The journey itself takes 2.5 hrs oneway because of heavy traffic. The road conditions are very good. The entry fee is 50k for foreigners and 15k for return shuttle ride....More

One has to visit kawah Putih while in bandung. You can't really compare and pick between kawah putih and perahu. It's like comparing apples to oranges. You have to visit both and I must say touting here isn't as bad as perahu. The views here...More

Kawah Putih is a must-see when in Bandung. altho the ride is a tad long (not the distance, but traffic instead), when you get there, and walk about the lakeshore's white sandy beach, and look onto the azure bluish waters, there's a calming effect that...More

We took Grab car from Bandung (our hotel) to White Crater. It isn't easy to get a return car back to town (or i would say none except your driver waits for you). We took the Angkutan Kota (yellow-coloured van) down and... More
