Mount Papandayan, Garut

4.5
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Garut
Test your fitness and courage and with a trek up Mount Papandayan, an active volcano whose peak stands at 2,665 m (8,743 ft). The track bears plenty of markers of volcanic activity, including steam vents and mud pools, as well as a yellow, bubbling crater. For a creepy experience, check out the ghostly patch of forest killed in a previous eruption. Be warned: some visitors may find the trek difficult, and proper equipment, such as trekking boots and sun-protection gear, is recommended. Follow the safety regulations, as volcanic activity can present unexpected dangers. To plan Garut vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • It turns out that TWA mount Papandayan has experienced a rise in admission since the year 2016. However, that can be perceived by visitors is the comfort in visiting attractions TWA mount Papandayan. Experience to get a beautiful view of Mount Papandayan exceeds the price paid. There are no words of regret already visited TWA Mount Papandayan. Restrooms are clean and there is in every post hiking track, 24 hour security officers stand guard, hot spring facilities, parking area, good road access was quite satisfied for me.

  • Mt. Papandayan is managed privately, so presentable & clean. Yg termsk line easy for novice climbers. Use the mask/buff as it passes through Crater (pos5-6). After pos7 the view along the way is beautiful really. Camping ground is on Ghoberhoet cottages (for viewing sunrise) and Saladah (more near to the forest of the dead). Public toilets clean and many stalls in the saladah. View beautiful forests die yg yg be the signature mount papandayan. Keep the nature of litter and vandalism, please.
