Tangkuban Perahu, Lembang

3.5
#2 of 37 in Nature in West Java
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.

    Nice place to go to. With a good view and cold air, nice people. The local guides are friendly as well. One more point, not very far from Bandung city.

    Good experience as it is my first visit to volcano crater. But they charge 10 times higher entrance fee for foreigner. Local pay 20k (weekday) & 30k (weekend). But foreigner need to pay 200k (weekday) & 300k (weekend). This is the only place in Bandung that charge so much different between local & foreigner. There is totally no facility provided for the money paid. Better visit Kawah Putih. This charge will kill off the tourism in this place. Local tour guides had highlighted to local authorities. But no action taken.

    The place to experience volcanic, the smell of sulfur is not really strong, it's still okay if you do not wear mask, of course it will depend on it's volcanic activity. If you are foreigner and don't have KITAS, you need to pay 300,000 Rupiahs/person, quite expensive compared to similar place, which is ridiculous. Even the world heritage Borobudur temple in Central Java do not charge you this much as tourist spot. You also need to prepare 2000-3000 rupiahs if you want to use toilets inside the area even after you paid the admission fee. Too many people on saturday and sunday. Go further to Kawah Upas direction, you will see less crowd.
