White Crater, Ciwidey

#1 of 94 in Nature in West Java
Witness a highlight of Indonesia's landscape at White Crater, a sulfurous crater lake. Colored an almost unnaturally pale blue, the lake's acidity has leached through surrounding rocks and sand, making them a strikingly bright white. With ample walking tracks crossing the terrain, take a stroll around the lake to grab new perspectives and snap photos. A parking lot provides convenience for independent travelers and those on group tours; farmers sell refreshing snacks, such as locally grown strawberries, at the water's edge.

  • Highly recommended attraction for Bandung. The lake water is milky white is color and the sand is covered with sulfur. A great place to take photos. There will be a light sulfur smell and bring along a face mask. This place will be crowded and go early to avoid the crowd. There will be additional ticket price to walk the bridge going to center of the lake and view from walkway.
  • Definitely worth the trip- not something you'll have a chance to see that often in a lifetime. Make sure you go early enough to avoid the crowds and the fog.
