This mountain volcanoes is certainly worth visiting at least once. I have been twice, both times on a week day which meant fewer crowds. Both times using my KITAS which allowed me local price without much problem. They tried to trick us the first time but we were informed and refused to pay more than local. They finally obliged, however,... More

Foreigners pay 10x the price of locals, nice way to rip-off money. Not worth it, even with champagne on the volcano. Indeed a turist trap.

I came here together with my family about a year ago. The only thing that I really didn't like were the people around you, will keep trying to sell you something. My tip for this is... go with a local tour guide they'll either help you to negotiate or tell them that you are not interested. But this side is... More

It's really a hit and miss for me. On 1 hand, you get to see a live volcano. On the other hand, it is so crowded that you are looking more at ppl than the volcano. And once you taken the necessary photos or selfie, that's it. It is a bit more interesting if you take the hike to the... More

But then the entrance fee of 30,000 can be multiplied by 10 times for farangs. So go with a local friend to avoid this scam or you can go early in the morning before the guards come. There should be no fee to get to the top. The trail can be from the lava flowed hole so just follow the... More

At the gate of the volcano park locals pay 30 000 and foreign tourists pay 300 000. That is not acceptable. Do not go on Sundays as the whole spot is overcrowded. Way back to Bandung costed us 2,5 hours. The volcano and the hot springs are worth to see but surely not for this price of money and time.

I wanted to visit as this is one of the most popular site near Bandung.The crater and surrounding area are natural beauties but not the best compared to other craters in Indonesia. The first "trap" are the touts. They will follow you around and act helpful , before trying to sell you necklace/keychains at exorbitant price. They claim it's made... More

we are not allowed to walk down to get close to the volcano site... however you can click pretty good pictures... walk up the hill for an awesome view ...the walk up may be a little steep and you got to be careful with your steps...besides that, there is pony rides available for kids...there are many peddlers selling stuff such...

Gorgeous spot, no doubt, with picturesque scenes and great photo ops. However, the entrance ticket is terribly expensive for foreigners. The touts here, disguised as kind local guides, are ruthless and use emotional blackmail and play on your sympathy to make a quick buck. They are persistent and sell cheap souvenirs at exorbitant ripoff prices. Despite prior warning about falling... More
