Tangkuban Perahu, Lembang

(3.5/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
The area's most prominent natural feature, Tangkuban Perahu represents the only volcano in Indonesia with a crater accessible by either driving or hiking. Most foreign visitors choose to drive right up to the edge of the volcano, where they can observe boiling mud and purchase eggs cooked on hot stones. If you don't want to visit the area on your own, consider joining a guided day trip from Bandung. Several tour operators offer excursions in this region, with stops at the volcano, local markets, farms, and tea plantations. Note that this very active volcano last erupted in 2015. Make Tangkuban Perahu a centerpiece of your Lembang vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lembang trip builder.

  • Hati hati karena banyak zona bahaya, Pemandangannya indah disini. Kalau kabut dan hujan jangan ke sini. Hanya untuk kunjungan cuaca cerah agar benar benar puas.

  • Stunning views of the active volcano crater. Does get quite crowded but with a bit of a walk you'll be able to find a quiet spot to enjoy the view. Grab some grilled corn from one of the street vendors along the edge for a quick snack.
  • People say it's a typical tourist trap in bandung.. But if you never see any vulcanic crater before, I'd still recommend this place. Preferably not during school holiday seasons. It has funny smell but the view is great!
  • They upgrading the facilities, the access are great..eventhough hiking was the very best experience you can get so you can roam through the forest and all the way up to the creater and top of tangkuban perahu and it quite save (if they say so because the volcanic still active) because if it not save they will close it and there is a lot of sign so the chance you will get lost are small..
  • I visited this place on the weekend just when they opened the gate at 7:00. The entry ticket was 35k per person, 17k for motorbike, and 5k for parking (really?). In the morning, the view was spectacular, you can even enjoy fresh morning air and thick mist, I think this was the golden moment and worth every penny. Two hours later, the mist was gone and more tourist were coming. It was time to head back home.
