Kawah Putih (White Crater) + Other Attractions in South Bandung ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ

Places visited in Ciwidey, South Bandung:


Getting from the city to Kawah Putih (South Bandung)

  • How: Private car charterย 
  • Price: ~SGD45 (10 hours, inclusive of driver and petrol costs only)
  • Duration: ~3 hours from the city to Kawah Putih (also known as White Crater)
Our ride for the day; setting off at 8am.
Stopping at the ‘ticketing office’ to pay for the entrance fees to Kawah Putih before driving in.
The rates. We paid an extra SGD15 to drive our car in, instead of taking their local transportation.
Kawah Putih, in all its splendour.
Tip: Bring masks to ‘protect’ yourself from the sulphur. It tickles your throat and you might join the symphony of coughs all around.

Pinisi Resto

Our driver, who was more like a local guide, brought us to this scenic place for lunch.

Random stop at one of the many tea plantations in the area.
Behold, Pinisi Resto.
Overlooking the Glamping Lakeside Rancabali. We chose another glamping spot cause this campsite was pretty pricey.
Inside the ‘restaurant’. You pick the dishes you want and pay accordingly.

Verdict: Not for fussy eaters.
We didn’t order from the menu so I can’t comment on that. We ordered from the food on display instead.

Food isn’t fantastic – don’t expect restaurant standards. It’s more of a local food spot inside a nice structure. Food is decent but note that it may be served cold. Food was alright for me โ€” I’m not picky โ€”ย but you’ll be experiencing part of the local life.


Strawberry + blackberry picking

Told our driver we wanted to pick some fruits and he brought us to a random ‘farm’.

The chosen spot.
The mother diligently choosing the ripe ones.
The loot. The scissors are meant for snipping off the stems.

Verdict: Not worth it all.

In all honesty, I only wanted to do it for the pictures. I can’t recall how much we paid for this but it’s charged by weight. Blackberries weren’t sweet. Strawberries were alright but just not worth the price.ย If you have never picked strawberries before, go ahead. If not, save your money and buy a Magnum.


Alright, enough content for a post. Next up, my first ever glamping experience in Legok Kondang and dinner in a nice local restaurant.

Till then!
