We took a look at the lake from Glamping, a ship like restaurant/cafe on top of a cliff instead of the main entrance to the lake. According to our driver, it is cheaper to enter through Glamping than the lake entrance itself. Generally, it was a very nice view and definitely have many photo opportunities. Unfortunately, it rained on us... More

Beautiful lakeview, nice restaurant which look like a ship & cooling weather. Will try the tent hotel next time as it is facing the lake. It is located near Kawabata Putin & strawberry farm.

One of a natural lake around bandung. You can go around the lake by boat and reach a small island in the centre of the lake. Suitable for you who wants to feel fresh and cold air. Looking at the green view of trees and water, so refreshing. You must pay to enter to this area.

I don't understand why some people recommend visiting this lake. The lake lacks of maintenance and rubbish is everywhere

I like and love this place. Cool weather, food court with cheap price, souvenirs available, friendly people, and afgordable ticket price. There is a Mushola for pray and there is toilet. When it's raining, I think I really enjoy at that time. More romantic for me. Enjoy

No activities or specialty food around. It is just a big lake surrounded by tea plantations. Driving there from city is far.

This lake, situated near the more popular White Crater, is a beautiful, albeit a bit run-down when it comes to public amenities. The ticket is fairly cheap. You can take a boat ride to the middle of the lake, take pictures and enjoy the view of the lake framed by mountains. The air is really fresh, perfect for camping and... More
