Its an interesting place to visit. The place surrounded with white rocks and kind of foggy, it is really cold but the water feels warm.

Travelled about 2 hours plus just to visit this place. It is only worth it if you explore the other places of interest within the area.

Kawah Putih itself is pretty cool. Great place to take an apocalyptic style photo.

The journey itself took about 2.5 - 3 hours from Bandung city (which may take longer with the traffic jams) unless your driver knows how to take the small roads to avoid the jams.

When you reach the entrance (near the ticket counter), there will be lots of people selling strawberries and souvenirs. Also best to do your business at this stop area. Don't remember seeing any toilets at the top of the mountain.

After the entrance, it is still about 20 - 30 minutes ride to the top of the mountain to reach Kawah Putih.

As you enter Kawah Putih, there will be people hassling you to purchase the mask or take photographs.

Everything aside, it is still an amazing experience to be in the crater.

The unique turquoise colour of the lake, the atmosphere, the beautiful scenery. You can still see steam coming out from the rocks. Lucky for us, the smell of the sulphur was not too choking. Weather was good. Not too cold and not too hot.

Unlike Tangkuban whereby you can only view it from the observation deck, here you can get up close and personal. And with the increase in the entrance fee to Tangkuban Perahu, more people are flocking to this place.

Kawah Putih is definitely one of the must places to visit when you are in Bandung. Hopefully they do not increase the entrance fee too.

This crater lake is certainly worth a visit if you visit Bandung. The cooler climate and the misty appearance make it a unique sight compared to other places in West Java.

The journey to this place takes about 2.5 hour by car from the Bandung city, but it's definitely worth it. The lake is in the colour of turquoise and the view is stunning! The smell of sulphur was bearable for me and my friends, so none of us bought the masks sold there. The entrance ticket was about IDR 50k per foreigner.
