Kawah Putih - Review

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

  • Wisata bandung selatan yang ga boleh kelewat untuk para traveler. Tempat ini menjadi salah satu iconic bagi daerah bandung Selatan karena kawah nya yang sangat indah. Sayangnya, biaya masuk ke tempat ini sudah tergolong mahal dan butuh waktu sekitar 2 jam lagi dari Bandung. Jadi saran saya apabila mau kesini, harus berangkat lebih pagi agar mendapat view pagi yang indah. Selain tempat ini ada juga situ patenggang dan beberapa kebun strawberry untuk kalian rekreasi. ada juga outbond2 seperti paitnbal, ATV, Dll. Enjoy :)

  • Beatiful, the first word when you see this place. A crater with beautiful colors and stunning scenery. Also called white crater because of the white color effect that appears from the sulfur content inside. The smell of sulfur is often very strong so it is advisable to wear masks in this location to be more secure. Cold mountain air makes us comfortable to linger in this place enjoy the beauty of its natural charm. If you bring a private car, then you can bring your car closer to the location of the crater, past the climbing path with beautiful forest trees.

  • This is an awesome greeny white water crater in the world. It's greeny and white color of the crater is produced by the sulfur that come out from the crater ground. Its scene is so exciting. But in some case you need the mask to protect your breath if the sulfur going strong. To reach this place you need to rent the car which is provided by the venue about Rp.15.000,- (in 2018). Check it out !

  • Nice place to visit and taking photos, need to hike a little bit before you can reach here. Recommended to wearing a face mask due to strong smell of the sulphur originally from natural volcanic formation..

  • Kawah putih tempat yang bagus, terutama buat foto foto, bahkan ada yang foto prewed disini. Harga tiket masuknya 20rb per orang. Kalau mau bawa mobil masuk dan parkir di atas, harganya 150rb per mobil. Kalau parkir di bawah dan naik sejenis shuttle bus warna orange, bayar 35rb per orang untuk naik ke kawah putihnya. Sebelum masuk ke kawasan kawah putihnya, ada papan peringatan dan saran agar setelah 15 menit di kawah putih, pengunjung naik lagi karena bau sulfur nya yang cukup menyengat. Tapi banyak orang yang bahkan sampai satu jam pun tetap di sana. Di kawah putih juga ada photografer yang menyediakan jasa untuk foto-foto yang bisa langsung dicetak dengan harga (kalau tidak salah) 20rb(atau 25rb)/foto. Kita juga bisa minta softcopy foto nya seharga 10rb/foto.
