White Crater, Ciwidey

4.0
#1 of 37 in Nature in West Java
Geologic Formation Mountain
Witness a highlight of Indonesia's landscape at White Crater, a sulfurous crater lake. Colored an almost unnaturally pale blue, the lake's acidity has leached through surrounding rocks and sand, making them a strikingly bright white. With ample walking tracks crossing the terrain, take a stroll around the lake to grab new perspectives and snap photos. A parking lot provides convenience for independent travelers and those on group tours; farmers sell refreshing snacks, such as locally grown strawberries, at the water's edge.

  • 2 hours by car from Bandung City - we set off around 815am on a Friday and the journey was smooth all the way Entrance free 50k IDR per person + 35k local transport in a mini van where they Squash you...  more »
  • We have also toggle and across places whether we really should carry out the way to us because we had read too much. But we are 2 young girls (19 and 25) and thought: challenge accepted, let's just do it! And an advance: Yes it requires some different means of transport and yes it takes awhile but we had such a flow inside and quite frankly: as a sorcery as do all it is also again not! We are from our hotel to the train station in Badung with a Bluebird taxi to the bus terminal Leuwi Panjang driven there in a dark red Angkot after Ciwidey entered (the folks at the Serenade at the Terminal have guided by us backwards to the mini-buses, super friendly) and Yes, that was a little tight but took only about 1 h 20 and we are in a yellow Angkot in Ciwidey entered direction Kawah Puti , again with the help of the people there at the "Terminal" (rather a chaotic place where just many angkots go) and then are we roared through the small town and have seen many Strawberry farms. The bus driver told us then as it to the alight was and we have seen already the large parking lot and serenaded with food, strawberries and souvenirs. From there, so small shuttles are ramped to the Kawah Putih. Have filled up quickly and in a total of 2 h 30 we were up on the crater lake. Us absolutely bearable and more than 200,000 per person we have not paid for sure for transport + entry. And the trip worth it always has! It was beautiful and fascinated - a contrast had the Lake so the trappings was an intense colour and the dead environment. We recommend anyone to go :-) there It's really easier than you think! On the way back we got off the train in one of the villages and covered a little, really beautiful!
