There are some interesting places around Bandung, one of them is Patuha Mountains. Located in Southern of Bandung, Patuha Mountain have many interesting places to visit: Kawah Putih Crater, small lake named Situ Patenggang which surround by hills that have tea plantation, strawberry gardens, hot springs and Ranca Upas (the Deer conservation).
How to get there:
- By public transportation: from Leuwipanjang Terminal, take the small minibus which will take you to Soreang or Directly to Ciwidey. From Ciwidey terminal, you can take the small minibus which directly go to Situ Patengan/Situ Patenggang. This vehicle will through all the destination gate. If you want to go to Kawah Putih Crater, you can choose whether you want to hiking or take small car directly to the crater.
Suggestion time to get there:
- If you want to go there, I suggest on weekdays. If you go on weekend or in public holiday, just prepare for the traffic jam.
- The best time to visit the Crater is in the morning before 9 am. After 9 am, the fog will come and you can take good picture there :).
Here are some pictures of them which I’ve taken in 2006.
