White Crater, Ciwidey

4.3
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.

  • After a 1.5hr trip from Bandung to The White Crater car park, we purchased an entrance ticket for Rp75K each and jumped in the shuttle bus (the only way to ascend to the crater). The trip lasted rough...  more »
  • the crater white is also one of the famous Bandung's tourism. White Lake is a crater formed by the eruption of Mount Patuha. I recommend kalu to white crater wear masks because of the stench of blerang which is very intense.

  • His place was good enough, for transport already laid out pretty good, just a shame there are unscrupulous persons reply to earn some money by way of lying to tourists and there is no security guard on site.

  • Beautiful place but one has to consider the Sulphur gas that is being emitted there, depending on one's level of tolerance. It can get very cold up on top, so warm clothing (like a jacket) is advised - although there is provision to rent warm jackets at the top for some fee (can't remember how much the fee was). The green colored lake is very scenic and the stark contrast of bare-naked trees in the water gives an eerie feeling. The smell of Sulphur can be overwhelming under prolonged exposure. Nonetheless, it is worth a visit there.
  • Magnificent volcanic crater lake with sulphur, as well as a cool breezy weather to boot. Gets crazy during weekends so try to come early during a week day morning if possible. You'll need to pay extra to access the bridge, albeit it's totally Instagram worthy.
  • This is good place if you like greenery with water. Don't forget to bring mask as it costs more pricey(IDR 5K) near the lake. You have good place for photo shoot for IDR 10K .
  • Beautiful place to get experience see the crater. Location on South Bandung around 1 hour from last tol. Using masker recomend for coming here
  • The crater is very beautiful. We went there during weekday, so we could take good pic since there was less tourists visiting. Do bring jacket & mask.. I can only stay there 15 mins with the suplhur before getting dizzy (perhaps because I am in pregnant condition). If you visit in small group do use the shuttle they provide (IDR 15,000 per pax, return). The ride is a lot of fun. Entrance fee is IDR 20,000 per pax (for domestic) ; Car park is IDR 10,000 per pax. They have musholla & mosque, also clean toilet nearby.
