About Kawah Putih, Bandung

The beauty of White crater is what attracts tourists worldwide. Kawah Putih or White Crater is a striking crater lake and tourist spot in a volcanic crater about 50 km south of Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Kawah Putih is one of the two craters which make up Mount Patuha, an andesitic stratovolcano. Mt Patuha is one of numerous volcanoes in Java. Kawah Putih Crater Lake itself represents a relatively stable volcanic system with no records of significant activity since around 1600.

The dense forest area is great to explore around and visitors can sit in the shelters or take a walk. Animals and birds which may be spotted include eagles, owls, monkeys, mouse deer, and forest pigs. Panthers, leopards and pythons have also sometimes been seen in the nearby forest.

The most alluring part about this attraction is the lake, which because of being highly acidic, changes colors from blue to white to green to brown, and is a mesmerizing sight to behold. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bandung itinerary 1 day.

Kawah Putih, Bandung Reviews

  • It was great to discover this place if you have no respiratory problem. You get to see it up close and touch the water. First hand experience. Bring a jacket. It quite cold and breezy up there. Also a face mask to cover your nose.

  • One of the best Volcano Crater in Indonesia. It opens from 8am - 17pm. When you visit this place, I suggest to to come earlier (8am or so) because only few people visit this place at that time so that you can freely take a lot of pictures. There are two types of transportation choice. When you reached Ticketing Box, you can choose either you want to drive your car (150K/car + number of people in car x 20.000) or use local transport (untang anting for another 15K) IT HAS A VERY BEAUTIFUL VIEW :"

  • You can see the crater so close with white color and sometimes can be green Tosca. Amazing scenic and nature. Instagramable! Fresh air and bit chilly. You'll love this place. 35K admission with return shuttle.

  • A wonderful place near Bandung, West Java. Gorgeous.... amazing.... The crater it self looks like a white lake surrounded by a tropical forest. You can go down to the crater, or climb the hill and see the nice scenery from above. Beside that, while climbing the hill you can also visit the tea plantation near by. The temperature could be very cold, so don't forget to bring your jacket. If you go down to the crater, the smell of sulphur can be strong in some particular area, just wear a mask or don't take a deep breath

  • Beautiful place, the cloud flying on water surface, cold, quiet, like a fantasy world. Very nice scenario. Wear cloths with outstanding colour, you could definitely get a very beautiful photo effect. Entrance fee is much cheaper then the other crater nearby, but the ambiance here is much nicer & beautiful. Wroth visiting with family.
