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.

Kawah Putih, Bandung Reviews - Write a Review

  • Over rated place.. Too expensive entry tickets 150,000 for cars... Too much crowded on holidays... Local transport vehicles are very unruly and chaotic... These People create jams on the narrow lane to volcano... Very small parking as compared to the number of vehicles that come here... Nothing to see except for a green water lake... I don't suggest anyone to visit this place.

  • It's quite far from Jakarta, around 5-6 hours. Also the road fom Bandung to this location is rather narrow and many traffic. Google maps is very useful to guide the route. But you will find a fresh scenery during the trip, and enjoy great view of blue crater lake at the location. If you want to visit here, it's better to have overnight at Bandung.

  • It was beautiful place to visit. Been here twice to accompany friends from abroad. It is good n nice view. Never get enough to see the colour of the creater n the beauty environtment God has made. The entrance fee also affordable n they also have shuttle car facilities. Good place for meditating n not easy to forget.

  • beautiful views, overcrowded. Bring your own mask, its cheaper than buying from there. really cool so bring your jacket if you can't tolerate to the altitude.

  • Heard about this for so long .... and finally Am here ..... love the nature here .... however, they make you pay for So called "preservation fee" of IDR 150k for car entry plus enteance fee of IDR 20k for each person.... I wouldnt paying but.... it was a bumpy ride .... with all the money earned they should have maintain it Well.... wE also had tO pay for restroom that is not even clean .. but i was having great time in the crater area ....
