Sikidang Crater, Dieng

3.2
#4 of 7 in Parks in Dieng
Boil an egg using volcanic heat at Sikidang Crater. The shifting volcanic terrain has created a pool of boiling water suitable for cooking eggs, although you should only do this under the supervision of a guide. Grey ash and rocks cover the landscape, which is full of active steam vents and hot stones. You can get right up next to the main crater, which contains bubbling mud and billows with sulphuric steam. Bring a face mask to protect yourself from the steam and the rotten-egg smell. Put Sikidang Crater into our Dieng driving holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The site could be splendid but the waste and plastics littering the ground around tarnish the beauty of the place. Too bad. However it is worth the visit. Pay toilets, parking, entry fee. Positions to selfies in site everywhere. The money raised could not be used to clean the site rather than to maintain positions of selfies and zip lines?
