Set off for Kawah Putih (white crater) slightly earlier at 7.30 am on a Friday, even though my driver suggested 8am. Our driver used a new expressway and arrived there in less than 2 hours. Managed to beat the crowd, hence better photo opportunities. The...More

The only downside in going to this place is the travel which took 3 hours or so. If you're not used to bumpy rides, then better prepare yourself. Even though the ride was hectic, I still believe it's a sight worth seeing. Too bad when...More

I didn't really feel this place. Yes, it does look pretty but I don't think that it is worth the trip from Bandung. It's just a small lake with white water. If you go bring a jacket as it actually gets quite cold. There were...More

The place is small and crowded. It is also overrated as the view is nothing much compared to tangkuban perahu. Entrance fee is quite cheap at 50,000. Additional 15,000 to go up to Kawah Putih for their local transportation. If you want to use your...More

This place is amazing & a must-visit in Bandung. Love the scenery - better than Tangkuban Perahu. Entrance free is much cheaper too. One thing to note the weather is cold, so bring along a sweater or jacket.

The view was exotic and one of a kind. Standing at the crater, it really is a geography student's dream come true! This spot is definitely an insta-worthy spot! However, please be careful of the sulfur puddles on the floor and not step into them,...More

A must visit place while in Bandung. For me, it is better than Tangkuban Perahu. More nature, more scenic views and more cheaper. The price is Rp65k for foreigners and Rp35k for locals. This beauty volcanic lake sometimes mysterious in color. It looks like turquoise...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
