Mount Papandayan, Garut

(4.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Mount Papandayan and other Garut attractions using our handy Garut itinerary planner.

  • Here you can see everything! Green forest, wild shrubs, unusual field junipers, sulfur gas geysers, rivers, waterfalls, rainforest, dead wood, lava Lake, rocks and all this colour diversity of landscapes in just a couple of hours! Put a minus point for the fact that we are not allowed to North 10-kilometre long tracking trail, which runs through the scenic jungles and Edelweiss Valley. In the usual official route-hook around Papandajana it is not. The guards were told that there supposedly washed away by rains the trail and the Government banned let tourists.

  • Mt. Papandayan, very beautiful place to visit. Gym climbing, can be climbed by a toddler. Even once I see there is a family who brought her baby age 4 months. Air temperature is extremely cold at night
