It’a now easy to reach and the facilities are good. Try to go during the week to avoid the masses of people and also the traffic.

One of the ‘must’ visit place travellers to Bandung should go. The White Crater is a beautiful volcano lake and it’s worth the travelling time of nearly 2 hours from the city area.
