This place has a beautifull and amazing scenic. The crater is big. It was crowded when we were there. We only spend about 10 minuites there. Use your mask to avoid the smell. I suggest you to go there before 10 am so you can enjoy the view.

it's a good place to get to know the results of volcanic activities. i like the view, it's quite magical. definitely a great place to take photos. the downsides are : - in weekdays you should wait longer for ontang-anting. they'll only go up after 12 people gathered to make a trip together. - bring your own umbrella & face...

My friends and i stayed there only for a short time, like probably 20-30 min to take some photos. I think it is worth going, it is beautiful. Car ride from bandung city to this place is a good 2 hours drive though.

It a signature for first timer should visit this place. Coming from tropical country without any volcanos, it's a great chance to witness it although it is no more active. Another attraction will be the beautiful scenery for photo lover.

It's a volcanic site where you have to smell a sulfuric kinda thing. There were face mask sell at the entrance of the crater. It is beautiful place and you can have a picture of the day here. The entrance fee is 50,000 rupiah/ person and if you going with a car, it will cost you 150,000 rupiah / car.... More

As explained before, the 40 kilometers from Bandung may take easily 3 hours. Entry as per February 2017: 20K for locals, 50K for tourists and 150K for the car, if you take it to the top. The lake is really white and as smelly as the feet of the guy next to me during my flight here. That's how volcanos... More

The place is amazing but it is prone to fog which leaves very little visibility. It can be very cold which most people are not prepared for. Would love to come back when there is better visibility.

We arrived at noon on a foggy day, after an early morning downpour heading to south Bandung. Visibility was minimised but it created an environment which was so mystical. A constant slight breeze I reckon lesson the sulphuric stench. The number of visitors were bearable and unlike Tankuban Perahu, there were no pesty traders. There are are some offers for... More

We came to Ciwidey during public holiday and the road leading to White Crater is very congested, it took hours to reach it from Bandung (City area). Therefore, when we arrived it was almost 5 PM and the fog is everywhere that even seeing everything is at times hard although not impossible. It was also quite cold (the temperature is... More
