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.
