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

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
