It is called Kawah Putih in their local language. The place is nice, weather is cool. You have a choice to drive in but enter fee apply or using their ready transport with cheaper price. Do buy the mask before you enter the crater, sulphur level are quite high, you can cough or feel dizzy very in 5-10 mins time... More

Entrance fee Rp. 50,000 per person Shuttle Van Rp. 15,000 per person If choose to take own car up (don't want shuttle van) Rp. 150,000 per car We went on thursday. While there's bad traffic in Bandung to Ciwidey, I'm unsure if it's normal or if it's because there's a demonstration going on. We took shuttle van up, while it... More

What a beautiful place. On arrival you purchase your entry ticket and then move to the transport area. From there a orange van will transport you to the entrance of Kawah Putih. It's only a 3 minute walk from the top transport area to the lake, via a walkway. This was our first encounter with an active volcanic crater. Although... More

We hired a driver for Ciwidey trip on Tuesday. We started our journey at 7am & traffic was bad as we past through Bandung city. Arrived 3 hours later. Foreigners must pay their entrance fees at a small office before reaching the White Crater, Rp50,000/pax. The staff will tell you that you have to wait longer if you want to... More

We hired a driver to drive us up. Traffic was pretty bad actually. We went on a Sunday hence the crowd. But it was really worth it. There are merchants selling masks and other things but it's ok if you dont buy. They won't bother you. The sulphuric smell was not that bad but the volcanic fumes was the one... More

I think this place is not worth visiting for a few reasons. First, the traffic is really bad especially on weekends. It took us 3 hours to go and another 3 hours to get back to Bandung. All along the road were cars and LOTS of motorcycles all on the same, small, country road.So if you really want to see... More

Eventhough it seems to take forever to arrive here and that's from Bandung city centre, it was worth it. The view is beautiful. Come in the morning, it's less crowded and when it's not raining, you can actually "touch" the sulfur smokes that raising from the active crater. But might want to use your own car or rental car going... More

A must visit place in Bandung. Took us 3 hours to get there but it's quite worth it. The scenery is beautiful. Do remember to bring along a mask as the smell of the sulphur can be over powering. We spent around 30 minutes taking photos. Best to go earlier to avoid the crowd.

It's such a beautiful place to go in Bandung. Too bad I choose the wrong time when I came there. It's rainy season. It's raining, the view wasn't really clear because it's foggy, and after few moments it's getting worse and worse... I even can't see the crater at all because of the fog. But really it's such a beautiful... More

This was the highlight of our trip in Bandung despite the long drive to and fro. We were only at the crater for 15min because that was the time frame our driver recommended us but you can definitely stay as long as u want. The smell wasn't as bad as expected. It's very cooling and scenic. Rmb to drop by... More
