1. Re: Bandung City to Garut

Hello,

Garut is a town in the West Java province of Indonesia and is the capital of the Garut Regency. It is located about 85 km to the southeast of the major city of Bandung, but travel time may take 3-4-5 hours as the road condition is poor and you have to travel through local villages.

Garut is in a valley surrounded by various volcanoes and hot springs. The most well known is Mount Galunggung which experienced a major eruption in 1982. Following the eruption, over 60 people died and much damage was done to the agricultural sector and infrastructure in the region. Other nearby volcanoes are Mount Talagabodas (around 2,200 meters), Mount Guntur (around 2,250 meters), and Mount Cikurai (over 2,800 meters).
