Mount Papandayan, Garut

(4.7/5 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.

  • Walk along the Papandajjana crater is one of the most exciting experiences of my entire life. The main thing is not to get there on a weekend, when buses brought hundreds of local. I walked among the colored stones, hot burljashhijh rivers in ferns along the shores and sizzling fumaroles alone-full sense of presence on just rodivshejmja and have not yet cooled down the planet until it us humans. Highly recommend! But beware ... the place is quite dangerous.
