It's a place that I think is an unforgettable place. Alothough you should spent two to three hours to there, when you go there you will think it's worth.

This is truly a wonderful place to learn about our earth and to enjoy a magical scenery. It has a very big potential as the crater lake is really pretty. However, prepare yourself with poor "traditional" local tourist site management. Some points to be aware: - Car entrance fee is expensive (Rp.150,000,-) unless you leave the car in the parking...

Entrance ticket for local is 20.000 IDR/person (almost 2 dollar/person) and for international is 50.000 IDR/person (almost 4 dollar). If you bring private car and want to park in lower parking lot, you just need to pay 5.000 IDR/car. After you park, you may continue with ontang anting (similar to public car) and pay 6.000 IDR/person. Or you can park... More

This is the first time I went with my family here. The wind brought a cold season to live right on christmas eve. I took so many shot along with my family. And we were having fun although we cannot do it too long since the sulfur smell was so strong.

I visit this place more than twice. Still, the color of the lake amazes me like the first time. It's perfect. Be careful of the sulphur, cover your nose to avoid you from gettin cough and dizzy. I certainly recommend this place.

Visited this magnifient place on earth. Was really amazed at how beautiful the scenery was. I was not dampened by the rainy weather in fact it helped to reduce the sulphuric smell it had. No regret coming here. I had an enjoyable honeymoon here! 👍😊

We took Grab car up to Kawah Putih w/o realizing it would be bbbrrr cold. First team to reach early in the morning at around 8am. We booked the van up at 330.000 for 3 pax. Usually they have to wait until the van is full (12pax). We didn't wait as we were the only ones there. The amount is... More

The view is like no other lakes I've visited so far. Blue-green lake water surrounded by dead black trees and thick blanket of white fog. Weather was chilly and windy, smell was quite strong of sulphuric gas (you'll get used to it after sometime). It feels out of the world (ok I mean feels out of Indonesia for a moment).... More

Kawah Putih or White Crater is the sister attraction to Tangkuban Perahu. Another Volcanic crater you can access quite easily. Entrance fee still a reasonable 50K Rupiah (IDR), much cheaper than Tangkuban Perahu. Stop at the foot then change to a small local open-air vehicle for a very bumpy ride up the mountain which lasts 20 mins - hang on... More
