Awesome jeep ride A jeep cost about 350k to 450k Rupiah, so if you go with more people, more worth it The road up is soooo bumpy, and dusty But a very good experience The view is also magnificent.

After paying aprox 10€ aprox per person, you find poor infrastructure and conservation (paths closed, missing steps in staircase in viewpoint, litter). Only sign in English is to say that foreigners pay more, after that, all signs in Indonesian haha

Hi, You can never get to the crater. They will only bring you to the viewing level. :Like from afar but when cloudless, you can see the peak of the volcano. The jeep ride is about an hour.
